GABRIEL HOUSE HOTEL | A PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD OF CORK CITY

GABRIEL HOUSE HOTEL IN CORK

JUNE 2017 UPDATE

I actually did visit again in 2016 and stayed for a week. Unfortunately I will not be staying here in 2017 because they have adopted a new charging policy which does not suit me.

I usually book my hotels at least six months in advance but only if I can cancel or change the booking but unfortunately Gabriel House now expect 70% payment in advance and it is not refunded if the booking is cancelled, to be fair the price is very good. However if you try to book with an option to cancel the price can be very high [way too high]. Today I checked to see a two day stay would cost 24-26 July and the asking price is Euro 226.30 which is what I paid for four nights in July 2016.

This year I am staying at a more expensive hotel but I can cancel at any stage up to the day before the date of arrival.

Because hotel prices in Ireland, both North and South, are increasing at an amazing rate I have already started the 2018 booking cycle and I cannot believe the prices. If the price increase continues 2018 will be the last year that I visit Cork and Belfast and stay overnight.

JULY 2015 ORIGINAL COMMENT

Gabriel House is a few yards downhill from St Luke's Church which is the most imposing building in the area and it is close the the railway station [especially if you use the steps … ask the hotel for directions] and while it is not as close to the action as is the Gresham Metropole Hotel it is ideally located for those wanting to explore Cork city and surroundings.

Some people would describe the area as ‘run down” or past its best but I must admit that I like the area. Saint Luke is considered the patron saint of painters which is somewhat appropriate as there is an artistic or boho feel to the area [you must visit St Lukes Wine Tavern a few yards up the hill from the hotel.

I hope to visit again in July 2016
