We stayed at Gabriel House on the basis of a referral from a friend who stayed there earlier this year. The building has a lot of character and has a good selection of rooms to suit individuals and family's. The staff were superb providing a personal service that you would associate with Ireland. The rooms were very clean. The selection... More

I arrived at the hotel after an early morning flight just to see if I could store my bag until check in. The hotel staff were immediately welcoming and sat me in the lounge with a much appreciated cup of tea and slice of cake while they got the room ready within moments so that I could shower etc. This...

Thank you for taking the time to Review Gabriel House. It is not always possible to allocate you a room with a view, especially with a Triple room or a Family room but I hope this did not impede your enjoyment of Cork city itself. Your comments will be of help to fellow travellers. Regards, Kathleen Manager. More

We have just returned from a four night stay at the Gabriel House guesthouse, and have no complaints whatsoever. The staff are all as friendly and helpful as they could possibly be, and nothing is too much trouble. Our room was a good size, and the bed enormous - and very comfortable. We slept really well every night. It was... More

Room was quite small and quite dated although bathroom was nice and modern. Advertises free parking but it was very restricted. Upon arrival car park was full so we were advised to just park on the street. Not exactly ideal.

It's not always possible to secure parking for all guests, it is firmly based on availability so I am sorry you had to leave your car on the road. I hope this this not interfere in your stay as a whole. If there is anything we can do to improve please let us know. Kind regards, Kathleen, Manager. More

There is no question about it, staying here for a few nights is a wonderful experience and it is impossible not to recommend Gabriel House. If you are booking make sure to include breakfast.

Thank you for your in depth review of Gabriel House, This is always a help to others in their planned trips to Cork and Gabriel House. the rate as you pointed out is lower than the standard free cancellation rate which is what most people choose so this is why it is non-refundable, it's entirely up to the individual which...

friendly staff, easy to find and a beautiful building. There were a couple of negatives, the room was sufficient, nothing special, but the price reflected this. The breakfast was good and the room was quiet considering we were in a city centre. However the star of the show was the animals and the lovely man who looks after them .... More
