BOTANICAL THEMED AFTERNOON TEA TO CALL & COLLECT

Have you been yearning for dainty finger sandwiches, fluffy scones and mouth-watering desserts and treats? Fear not, this May Bank Holiday weekend, here at The Montenotte Hotel we have a unique and exciting way for you to treat yourself, your family or friends  from the comfort of your own home as we finally welcome back summer.

“May Day” has been celebrated in Ireland since pagan times as the feast of Bealtaine.  Traditionally, bonfires were lit to mark the coming of summer and to grant luck to people and their livestock. We do not do bonfires anymore, but it is the start of summer  and you can have cake, as you enjoy your weekend at home with some of our tasty delights and even catch up with some of the Cork International Choral Festival virtual hybrid concerts.

The team at the hotel led by our Executive Head Chef Tabrez Shaikh, have enhanced our hugely popular Call & Collect Afternoon Tea and created a specifically themed Botanical Afternoon Tea for you to enjoy. Delight your loved one to a special tea, with influences from our Victorian gardens at the hotel including lavender and rosemary. The Botanical Afternoon Tea Menu is fresh, light, herbal and has an amazing blend of sweet and savoury.

The menu includes sweet treats such as The Montenotte Battenberg, Lavender & White Chocolate Posset, Rosemary Infused French Chocolate Tart and Bertha’s Revenge Sloe Gin & Plain Scones to name but a few.  Savoury items include Lemon Balm Chicken, Coronation Prawn and Black Forest Ham. 

Botanical Afternoon Tea will be placed on a beautiful bespoke three-tiered carryout box, priced at €55, including takeaway tea or coffee, designed to lavishly treat two people.

Why not add a bottle of “Louis Picamelot, BLANC DE BLANCS BRUT NV France” all for €95 and make it the perfect aperitif.

The Botanicals Afternoon Tea to Call and Collect is available over the May Bank Holiday weekend  from Friday April 30th to Monday 3rd of May 2021, with collections from 12:00 to 15:00  daily.

You can BOOK ONLINE or call us on 021 4530050.

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW – but a year to be very proud.

As we say goodbye to 2021, a year that has arguably been hugely challenging for our industry, we can’t help but be hopeful that 2022 will be a better one.

Even with all the challenges that faced us this year, what with us being in restrictions for the first five months of the year, here at The Montenotte Hotel, like so many others we pivoted, and this started by us opening our Vintage Van Café outside the front door of the hotel. The opening of the Vintage Van allowed us to bring some of our team members back to work. The locals here around the hotel in the Montenotte area, loved the Vintage Van Café as they went for walks within their 5KM radius. We are so appreciative of the support that the local community provided us with during those early days of 2021.
