GABRIEL HOUSE GUESTHOUSE THREE YEARS SINCE MY LAST STAY
With its elevated position, Gabriel House is a beautiful, period guesthouse that looks out over Cork’s cathedral spires and the harbour. Guests can pick out freshly laid eggs for breakfast each morning from the house’s own resident hens. A traditional Irish breakfast is served daily and made from local ingredients, while freshly home-baked breads, biscuits scones are made daily.
In 2006 I stayed at the Metropole in Cork and because of noise on the street [roadworks] I could not sleep and when I complained in the morning they did not have an alternative room so it was suggested that I could switch to Gabriel House.
According to the staff I last stayed here three years ago. My last visit to cork was 2019 and I stayed in low cost accommodation close to the railway station because I had injured my foot and did not want to deal with the hill up to Summerhill North
In 2017 I may have stayed at the Metropole on McCurtain Street because Garbiel House had introduced a non-refund booking policy which did not suit my travel schedule. Prior to 2017 I had booked a room at Gabriel House every year, from 2007 to 2016.
This year I got a very good price for four nights and as there is now an excellent bus service the hill is not really a problem.
I have already booked a week in May 2022.
