CORK JAZZ FESTIVAL 2018

The Cork Jazz Festival is an annual music festival held in Cork City, Ireland.  This year the festival will run from the 25th-29th October 2018.

Did you know it is Ireland’s biggest and longest established jazz event and has taken place annually since 1978!  Each year the festival attracts up to a thousand musicians  and many thousands of fans to the city for a feast of jazz of all kinds.

For the first time ever, the weekend will kick off with a fantastic carnival-like ‘Dia De Los Muertos’ Jazz Parade on Thursday evening, 25th October.  This bright and colourful spectacle will roam through the streets of Cork bringing with it the alluring dance of the macabre. This deadly display, is a nod to Mexico’s famous ‘Day of the Dead’ Parade, the perfect start to Halloween season!

The Guinness Cork Jazz Festival line-up features Grammy award-winning Maria Schneider and her Orchestra for their first-ever Irish appearance, the legendary Blind Boys of Alabama, celebrated US Jazz singer and composer Nnenna Freelon, UK soul songstress Laura Mvula, Chicago’s Hypnotic Brass Ensemble as well as Stanley Clarke, Billy Childs Ensemble, Billy Cobham, Fred Hersch, T.S. Monk, Donny McCaslin, Belfast’s jazz evangelist Linley Hamilton, Frank Vignola’s Hot Jazz Trio and Pablo Ziegler Trio.

It’s a lively and sociable festival, with lots of events – jazz and otherwise – taking place at pubs, theatres and other locations across the city. However you don’t have to be a Jazz aficionado to enjoy this festival, a series of free “fringe” activities, all aimed at extending the whole experience for locals and visitors. The perfect opportunity to see Cork city come alive and get a taste for the jazz culture!

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW

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.
