Did you know that the modern holiday of Mother's Day was first celebrated in 1908! Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother at St Andrew's Methodist Church in West Virginia which now holds the International Mother's Day Shrine. Her campaign to make Mother's Day a recognized holiday in the United States began in 1905 as she wanted to tribute her mother by continuing the work she started and to set aside a day to honour all mothers because she believed a mother is "the person who has done more for you than anyone in the world".

It is very true that a mother’s work is truly never done, so we all know that the reason we have Mother’s Day is to celebrate at least once a year the incredible mother. Here at the award-winning Montenotte Hotel ,we have given a lot of thought in to gift ideas for Mother’s Day. Rather than the traditional gifts of flowers and chocolates, give your mum a gift she will cherish forever, simply create a memory. This Mother’s Day, set a date, choose her gift and enjoy the precious and unique moments together.

Choose from:

  • Mother’s Day Lunch, enjoy a sumptuous 3 course lunch followed by a screening of  "Mother's Day" in our in-house cinema 'The Cameo'.
  • Mid-Week Getaway at the award-winning Montenotte Hotel, €199
  • Bellevue Spa Mid-Week with a 50 minute Treatment with Afternoon Tea, €99
  • Cameo Dinner and Movie Package for Two, €70

How to Plan the Perfect Luxury Spa Experience

We all hear talk about self-care, but why is self-care so important? Self-care means being mindful of our own needs, taking the time to do things that help us feel well and live well.

Self-care impacts both our physical and mental health as it can help to eliminate or reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also minimise frustration and anger, increase happiness, improve energy and concentration, better our mood and much more.

In other words, self-care is important because when we take care of ourselves and are not stressed then naturally, we are better able to meet the needs of others. Life is a healing journey and it starts with self-care and self-awareness of one's needs.
