Meet Rachel Sheehan, the Reiki Master at Bellevue Spa

"My name is Rachel Sheehan and I am the Reiki Master here at Bellevue Spa

I worked in childcare for over 5 years where I discovered that I had a natural ability to help everyone around me and started to understand that helping people on an one to one was what I needed to do.I had a natural understanding of energy around me that I was drawn to study holistic and physical therapy in Cork College of Commerce where I continued to grow as a person and develop my skills.

In the 1st year of college there was an option to do Reiki which I did, I really enjoyed this part of the course, healing runs in my family so started to feel the energy quiet quickly but when I was young my mother always told me, I had healing hands which I didn’t believe until I was older. I  started to develop this skill by doing it on family and friends to begin with. As I grew more confidant  I was able to help and heal each client in their own way and what I love most about performing  reiki is helping that client to release and let go of whatever is harming them. With Reiki no matter which area of the body I am working on the Reiki will be drawn to an area that needs unblocking or healing.

I have performed  Reiki on many different people with all sorts of medical conditions including cancer, anxiety, depression, fear, holding onto the past, autism, stress and the list goes on. I really love to help people in any way possible. A lot of people open up to me and feel quite comfortable to speak and let go. I feel very fortunate to be able to provide this service to people and to know I am helping others in all paths of life.

I also provide other treatments including lymphatic drainage, Indian head, Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue and Reflexology  while I do love doing all treatments, Reiki would have to be my favourite.

We offer Customised Reiki in Bellevue which involves my clients perhaps having Massage or a Mini Facial depending on my findings from my initial consultation and what the client would like extra then this will be added in to ensure the client benefits fully.

I look forward to meeting some of you in the future."

We do offer free Skin Consultations and will happily answer any questions you may have.

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,
