Gorgeous hotel in lovely Cobh. The location is perfect for seeing Cobh. Stayed here with my sister and we had a fantastic time. The room was stunning and very spacious. I would highly recommend staying in Gilbert's. The restaurant was excellent also. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be returning.

This is our fourth time at this fab boutique hotel in the beautiful town of Cobh. We stayed in room #3 this time. I have stayed in this room before. Although it is on the inside of the building and doesn't have any views, who cares.... It is a smaller room than #4 but still beautifully appointed using the same... More

We got 3 rooms for 3 different couples. All rooms were beautifully decorated and spacious. The bathrooms were big and modern. This place is very charming and Ann was lovely to deal with. Parking was a bit tricky to find on the street with our rental car. I would stay here again for the coziness and the location is fantastic.

My husband and I recently stayed at Gilbert's for one night. We cannot say enough great things about this spot, it was our favourite place to stay in Ireland! The room was clean and spacious, the bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom was an absolute dream. The location is superb - right in the heart of Cobh. The... More

My wife and I stayed and ate at Gilbert's during our month bicycle tour of Ireland. We liked Gilber'ts so much that we stayed a 2nd night and made Cobh a "rest day". There are insufficient superlatives do attribute to Gilbert's. Everything is excellent: staff, food, room. Gilbert's was the best place we stayed during our entire trip, and we... More

We had not planned to stay in Cobh, but at the last minute we decided we would. We had looked around at the hotels and nothing had interested us. We went in to Gilberts for lunch and saw that they did accommodation so asked and booked the room. The room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable, the bath... More

We recently visited Cobh and decided to have lunch at Gilberts. It was a great choice for our family. My husband and I had a lovely fresh salad with goats cheese, pine nuts and chicken while the children had a lovely homemade burger. Staff were very friendly and I would definitely go back. Would recommend to anyone looking for nice... More

Arrived in Cobh in the late afternoon without a place to stay and began our search. We located Gilbert's and we could not have done better. Ann showed us the penthouse "apartment" room and we were amazed by what we saw. Living room, kitchen area, spacious bedroom and separate bath - you could live there. Great place, restaurant downstairs and... More

It being a while since I've being back to Cobh on business, this time I had the good fortune to choose an overnighter in Gilberts. It can only be described as 5 star accommodation without the 5 star prices. Everything can only be described as picture perfect. The cleanness and attention to detail has to be commended whit the owners... More

Gilbert's Townhouse is an outstanding place to stay! The room was very spacious and decorated beautifully (very high end)! Ann was such a gracious hostess....welcoming us with 2 huge chocolate brownies...to accompany our tea! Also left us breakfast items and lemon souffle's! (Delicious!) Our room overlooked Pearse Square with 3 big windows and was very bright and cheery! Location was... More
