Booked online and I was very impressed with the quality of the amenities here and the service as soon as I arrived. The rooms are excellent, modern and spacious (dbl room) and very well appointed. There was an excellent choice of breakfast items - I had the full breakfast. Better still the staff are extremely helpful and cheerful. The Gabriel...

I would recommend this place as a clean and comfortable fit. Simple accommodations but clean and nice. There is no lift so you will have to carry your bags upstairs. There is a free parking lot adjacent to the hotel. Gabriel house is about a ten minute walk to the city center. The breakfast was jam packed when I went...

Thank you so much for taking the time to Review Gabriel House. I am disappointed you could not take up breakfast at the house, I am sure you would have enjoyed it. I could have served you breakfast in the garden, it would have enhanced your stay with us. Please, if you are back this way again, we would be...

Thank you for taking the time to Review Gabriel House. Unfortunately we do have to contend with the elevated position of the house, but the up side to this is that we have some of the vest views in Cork as you had in your room during your stay. I hope you will come again to Cork and hopefully we...

I had a really great stopover at Gabriel House recently. Plently of parking available, although very steep car park. Great Welcome by the wonderful Valerie, who gave me a wonderful room with a fab. view. The House is big, and old but well kept and managed. Good location to city, as McCurtain St. is just a short walk downhill. Very...

The b&b was fairly close to the city but please bear in mind that it is up a hill so whilst fine for me - might not be suitable for those who are not driving and have difficulties walking. Otherwise it's a great location. There is also a bus stop nearby but they were on strike when I was there....

Best B&B or hotel I've stayed in through work anywhere, so friendly and breakfast was never too much, you wanted poached, fried, scrambled or I might laugh at it, squishy egg in a cup, just stay here, awesome girls with such huge hearts, I miss you all, and yes Gary let me down too.

I stayed three nights in Gabriel House. My room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a lovely view over the gardens and city. I had a little window seat where I enjoyed an evening cup of tea or glass of wine looking out over the Cork skyline. The gardens looked lovely but due to inclement weather I didn't get a...

My room was number 13, lucky for me, a great view of the city, comfortable, spotless, nice size bathroom. Breakfast is second to none and the staff are always available and helpful. I certainly will return to Gabriel House and I look forward to it. The best bed and breakfast I have stayed in a long time.

Lovely guest house - it was clean, nicely decorated, spacious room and the breakfast was delicious. The parking spaces were down a rather steep ramp which was a bit of a heart stopper but it was large and a lot of availability. Short walk into Cork with various restaurants and pubs on way. I would recommend Gabriels.

My wife and I stayed at Gabriel House during a recent visit to Ireland. It sits about a 10-minute walk from the edge of the city and maybe 15-20 from city center. It's extremely convenient to get around, but we liked the quietness of being a bit outside of the city itself. While it is a B&B, there are somewhere...
