Gabriel Guest house was an interesting experience. Though it is more like a hotel, it still maintains a personal feeling to the stay. The room I stayed was 21 which is very clean, and spacious. Please note the room you might get might not be the room in the photos, as they have plenty of similar rooms. I was also asked to present my credit card, which seems a bit unusual for Airbnb reservations.
Breakfast is really good - starts from 7:30am. Make sure to let them know your dietary needs in advance, as the can prepare some unique dishes for you.
Two problems reduced my comfort during my stay. The first was the heating system didn't heat so well, and receptionist couldn't fix that even though trying. The second problem was the Wi-Fi. There are 3 Wi-Fi connection for each floor, and it seems well thought through. At first the speed was good about 20 MBPS. However, the connection was spotty and dropped off quite often. Again, the receptionist tried to "Reset" but it didn't work. So the last 2 days of my stay I was getting a very poor connection. I would still recommend this stay in Cork, I liked the location and the view from my room. Hope they will do better next time.
