One Year on at Cork’s Coolest, Calmest Spa 

Last May, luxury boutique hotel, The Montenotte opened the stunning Bellevue Spa and Style Suite. Developed by the same spa designer as Adare Manor, the Bellevue Spa brought luxury to Cork in a unique way by creating an oasis of calm in the heart of the city centre.

Drawing inspiration from the spectacular sunken Victorian gardens at the Montenotte Hotel, the award winning Bellevue Spa then introduced their custom-made, unique spa products with peat moss, seaweed, rosemary and lavender oils and many other naturally therapeutic ingredients for use in pampering and bespoke treatments, massages and facials to relax and rejuvenate hotel guests and spa visitors.  

When it comes to facial skin care, the Bellevue Spa advocates corneotherapy, and brought German spa brand, Dermaviduals to Ireland exclusively at the Bellevue Spa.  Spa guests enjoy a premier and custom experience with rejuvenation facials that treat the skin,  as well as therapeutic treatments, to find respite from our fast-paced world at the Bellevue relaxation suite and enjoy healthy, purifying refreshments after every treatment.

Within it’s first year, the Bellevue Spa & Style Suite scooped a number of awards, including most recently the Munster Hotel Spa of the Year at the Irish Hotel Awards.

Located in the original Georgian Manor House of the Montenotte Hotel, so it is truly a luxurious experience from beginning to end.  For special days out with the girls, or just for a quick pick me up, the Style Suite at the Montenotte is definitely worth a visit too.  Our beauty team will provide the ultimate blow dry with hair treatments by Kerastase, manicures and pedicures with OPI manicures and make up by Young Blood.

Bellevue Spa and Style Suite is now one year old, and if you haven’t experienced it yet, you should book today!

We do offer free Skin Consultations and will happily answer any questions you may have.
Please further information please call 021 4530053 or click here to book your treatment online.

Yes… the largest Sculpture Exhibition in Ireland is now open at The Montenotte Hotel

By Ray Kelleher – Director of Sales & Marketing

A stunning Sculpture Exhibition has been installed at our hotel this week, here at The Montenotte Hotel, in the sunken Victorian Gardens and will be on-site for the next four weeks, in association with the prestigious amazing The Kildare Gallery.

In keeping with our company’s commitment to support Irish art and culture, 38 sculptures by 18 Irish artists, including Bob Quinn, Stephanie Hess and Donnacha Cahill have now adorned the gardens. The works range in themes, scale and materials including ceramic, bronze, bog oak and copper steel.

With so many events, including showcase events like Bloom, cancelled, our exhibition is now the largest outdoor exhibition of its kind in Ireland this year!

We now encourage as many locals and visitors as possible to visit the Sculpture Exhibition and wander around the wonder of these secret gardens, which were only recently rediscovered and restored to their former glory of 100 years ago.  Your body and mind will truly relax as you peruse the art, breathe in the aromatic scents of lavender, myrtle and rosemary, and listen to the soothing sounds of the water fountain.

You can also take in the spectacular views of the exhibition, Victorian Gardens and Cork city from a high from the recently refurbished Panorama Terrace. We just ask that you pop to the hotel reception and register your details to gain access.

For myself, I am only just with the hotel less than 2 weeks and there is no doubt that this is one of Ireland’s most instragrammable hotels and the sculpture exhibition enhances this.

We hosted a press call to launch the exhibition with the Lord Mayor Cllr Joe Kavanagh and the Lady Mayoress Stephanie this week and our General Manager Brian Bowler commented , “We are delighted to host such a magnificent Sculpture Exhibition in association with the Kildare Gallery, after a hugely successful inaugural event in 2019.  It’s part of our ongoing ethos to support Irish artists, and it has never been more important to do, as the arts community has been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic. To see these incredible sculptures against the backdrop of our re-discovered sunken Victorian gardens is a stunning sight to behold”.

It was also great to meet Ruth Liddle from the Kildare Gallery who is the curator of the exhibition. I feel my artistic knowledge has grown since I arrived at The Montenotte Hotel.

The Sculpture Exhibition will run until September 26th.  All of the pieces are available to purchase with The Kildare Gallery and for more information about visiting the exhibition see here

This Saturday, on February 1st, I ventured down to Cork for a weekend break in the picturesque and beautifully modern, Montenotte Hotel.
As they say, January is the only month with twice as many days as the rest. Maybe it’s the post-Christmas, back to reality, dark at 4pm aspect, but January really does drag. The first day of Spring was the perfect time for a trip away. Matt drove and we arrived to check-in at 2pm, bringing the total journey time to just under 3 hours.

As always, if anyone has any questions regarding the stay, please do let me know. I am always happy to answer!
All my foodie love,
