Irish Sculptures to Adorn the Victorian Sunken Gardens at Luxury Cork Hotel


In keeping with Montenotte’s Hotel commitment to supporting Irish artists, 35 works of art from Irish sculptors will be exhibited in the stunning gardens of the Cork city boutique hotel from 27 June 2019.

Works by Orla de Bri, Ciaran Patterson, Ray Delaney, Anna Campbell and more will adorn gardens for guests of the hotel to peruse and enjoy among the flower-scented sunken Victorian garden at the Montenotte Hotel. The Irish sculpture exhibition is being hosted in association with the Kildare Gallery. 

Speaking ahead of the launch of the unique sculpture exhibition, Montenotte Hotel General Manager Brian Bowler said, “We continue to showcase and support Irish artists through our Artist in Residence programme and also through this important exhibition of Irish sculpture. The works range in themes and scale, and we are excited that these stunning sculptures will be displayed against the backdrop of our gardens here at the Montenotte Hotel.”

“We have curated a special collection by Irish sculptors for this exhibition at the Montenotte Hotel in Cork. It’s the first time that an exhibition of this size will come to Munster, and many of the pieces will be available to purchase. It is an ideal way to see sculptures in a natural outdoor setting, and we look forward to welcoming the guests of the Montenotte Hotel to the exhibition next week,” said Ruth Liddle, Kildare Gallery.

The exhibition of Irish sculpture will run from 27 June until 14 July, when  guests and visitors to the Montenotte Hotel can enjoy this special display of Irish art in a picturesque outdoor setting.

HISTORY BEGINS WITH A MERCHANT PRINCE

Lee View House

 

In 2017 the management team of the Montenotte hotel decided to embark on uncovering the history of our unique hotel. Having limited knowledge on its previous residence we commissioned a local historian, Margaret Lantry, recommended by UCC for her knowledge of Cork’s Merchant princes. The research project took over 12 months but the history uncovered and the stories told were remarkable.

The research documents, the background history, to the houses and the hotels on the site preliminary research was conducted involving the examination of the land records including ordinance survey, name books and letters, the tithe allotment books and valuation office records. The 1901 and 1911 censuses and Cork city street directories were also examined as were street directories since 1867. Other sources used where newspapers for mentions of the Lee view hotel and country club hotel in order to find out more about their history.
