Gabriel House is undergoing some minor renovations to improve our main entrance and reception area before the forthcoming season.
We intend to complete the work as soon as possible so be careful as you arrive and please bear with us while we are not at our best visually.
Thsoe of you lucky enough to be in Cork this weekend are spoiled for choice with regard to entertainment…Live at the Marquee, Midsummer Festival, Taste Fest Cork and live music in a variety of pubs so get out there and take part but more to the point enjoy !
Today is noticably warmer but the sun is still struggling to shine in Cork. It’s going to be a laughter filled weekend with events at the City Limits Comedy club and the Camden Palace both are only a short walk from Gabriel House bed and breakfast where we still have limited accomodation.
Bishop Lucey Park being magically transformed to an illuminated Christmas wonderland by Peter Kelly from Weddings by Franc. The theme of the Park is ‘Rockin’ Robin’ and three wonderfully friendly robins will be there to meet greet and dance to children and visitors alike. Throughout the Park special robin nests will be located where children can leave their letters and notes for Santa. Festive atmospheric music, mistletoe, bubbles and snow will fill the air further creating the magic and high spirits of Christmas for everyone to enjoy.
The festival will run for 15 days over the four weekends leading into Christmas with the market opening each day from 10 am to 8 pm and Bishop Lucey Park opening from 4 pm to 8pm and a new addition this year, Santas Secret Village from 12pm to 8pm at the old Beamish and Crawford building.
Don’t forget – Gabriel House is the ideal location for your visit to Cork this Christmas.
