GIFT IDEAS FOR MOTHER'S DAY 

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'.

ST PATRICK'S DAY

ST PATRICK'S DAY CELEBRATION AT HOME

For the second time we will be celebrating our national holiday in a lockdown. The nation’s favourite bank holiday normally brings out young and old, flags of tricolour in hands, dressed in green, faces painted in green, white and orange, marching in parades big or small, loud music playing, oh the thrill of being Irish but this year we just need to all this at home and in our back gardens.

The national flag of Ireland is intended to symbolise the inclusion of and the aspirations for unity between people of different traditions of this island, in 2021 more then ever the unity to fight the pandemic is stronger than ever. It has been such a long road but let’s be hopeful that soon we will be able to hold friends and family close again and get back to doing what we love.
