This beautiful elegant property was built in the 19th Century as a private residence by a wealthy merchant family.
During the 1920's Christian Brothers resided here for more than 40 years. Since the brothers departed in the 1960's it has been used exclusively as a Guest House / Bed & Breakfast.
Gabriel House is deceptively quiet for such a centrally located establishment. This is due in part to its setting, surrounded as it is by well-kept gardens and spacious private car parking facilities.
Given its position, overlooking the eastern section of Cork city and the harbour, it's not surprising that the view from most of the rooms is very impressive. From here you can gaze out over the docks and the spires of Cork's churches and cathedrals, and the vista continues right out over the new South Link Road, into the countryside and beyond the city towards Ringaskiddy.
The rooms are spacious and well appointed; all en-suite with a shower and TV .
Rate includes a continental breakfast with tea, coffee, hot chocolate, a choice of juices, cereals, fruit, yogurt, toast, brown bread and jams.
