Gabriel House Review

On a bluff high above the railway station and the docks, this huge Victorian house is in Cork's boho northside quarter, a long (10-minute) hike uphill. Your walk will take you past fine 19th-century homes, many of which have seen better days. Guest rooms vary greatly in size and orientation, with the biggest on the river side, but share a simple decor, muted colors, and a flat-screen TV. Bathrooms are small (no tubs), but have a heated towel rail and power showers. Tea and coffee are on tap all day in the breakfast room, and there is also an attractive garden. The nearest pub, Henchy's, a Victorian gem, is one of Cork's finest.
