10/10 Exceptional

Excellent all around
This was by far the best place we stayed on our trip. The staff were all so welcoming and happy to help with any questions or concerns. They have a garden and chickens and ducks to provide fresh ingredients for their breakfasts. We loved every breakfast option we tried!! It was in walking distance of plenty of restaurants and in the evenings we sat outback with some coffee. Definitely a perfect spot to stay.

Chickens and 1 of the ducks

Perfect central location!
Gabriel house is a great location, easily walkable to restaurants, shopping, bars, and the city center. The hotel offers discounts to some of the local restaurants and their recommendations are wonderful. Parking in tight spots on a hill was tricky for me so I parked on the street and there was plenty of street spots and the hill isn’t as steep. The room was small but cozy with a towel heater! Luxurious to say the least. I’d recommend and stay again!

First Impressions Count
My overall stay was excellent. I was greeted by Valerie at check-in, she was extremely welcoming and friendly setting the tone for the rest of my stay. The room was compact, bed was comfortable, shower was good for an early start. At breakfast, served by Valerie, there were plenty of options available but the cooked to order Irish breakfast was excellent, also plenty of tea and toast if needed. People make a difference and Valerie you set a high standard. Look forward to returning in the future.

Great value
Freindly staff, comfortable room, good shower. Trim and fittings showing aigns of age in places but also updated in others. Really great value overall. Breakfast not served until 7.30, so too late if you're on a business trip.

Cannot say enough about the incredible staff here. From check-in to breakfast they were incredible. The rooms are nice, clean, well-stocked, and some have views over the river/city. Easy walking distance to the train station. Would recommend a trip to Cork just to stay here! I almost made the mistake of not getting the breakfast. Fresh baked breads/ pastries, good coffee, fruit, and a full Irish breakfast for only €12.
