A brillant mix of mix of urban and country, there is an endless supply of things to do in Cork this Summer season, whether you prefer the outdoors, or would rather sit down and watch the world go by with your favourite aperitif.

This Summer sees Cork alive with festivals throughout the city and county.  To help you plan your #PureCork experience at the award-winning Montenotte Hotel we have compiled a list of wonderful events and attractions for you to enjoy during your time with us.

Of course, Cork city is an obvious place to visit! This historic university city, is one of the largest cities in Ireland, is full of great shops, lively pubs and a very welcoming atmosphere from the world’s voted third friendliest city, by Conde Nast Traveler. There is a variety of things to do for visitors for all tastes, from history fanatics, to foodies.

2019, is an exciting year of entertainment for Cork city and county with Rod Stewart performing in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, the home to Cork GAA. Enjoy a pre-concert aperitif while taking in the views of Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Cork city and beyond. Live at the Marquee kicks off in June, celebrating 14 years of great music in an incredible ‘Big Top Marquee’ which takes place over multiple dates.  This years’ acts include Aslan, The Academic, Tommy Tiernan, David Gray, Jenny Greene & The RTE Concert Orchestra, Christy Moore, Nathan Carter and many more! Cork Midsummer Festival takes place from 14th to the 23rd June and is one of Ireland's leading international multi-disciplinary arts festivals. It is an annual festival which transforms the city of Cork for two weeks every June with a programme of local, national and international events including theatre dance, music, opera, visual arts and street arts, as well as ambitious participatory projects and an extensive programme of free events.

Take a short stroll to the world famous English Market, this 18th Century Market is one of the oldest of its kind in the world. Selling only the best of local produce, from fruit, pastries, cheese and fish, it is a beautiful place even just for a walk through. Wander through the colourful and decorative stalls, all surrounded by elegant columns and covered over by a wonderful ceiling. If you are a fan of the movie or TV show ‘Young Offenders’, you can check out the fish stall where they film, and have their signatures upon the wall beside it!

Irish Independent Parkhas been the home of Cork Rugby since the 1940’s, however, in 2019 this historical Cork Stadium will open its gates to International concert acts. The line-up includes George Ezra, Walking On Cars, The Coronas and Hozier! Later this summer and celebrating 26 years in July this year is The Cork Pride Festival. This is a vibrant, fun filled occasion and a great way to spend the bank holiday weekend, taking place from 28th July to the 4th August 2019.

It’s fair to say that the award-winning Panorama Bistro & Terrace at the unique and iconic Montenotte Hotel is the envy of Cork, with its uninterrupted views out over the river Lee and city beyond. But it’s not just the scenery that attracts diners. As “Corkionans” we are an extremely proud people and this can be seen from the local produce and ingredients used in our menus. Our chefs have worked hard to deliver inspired menus with due regard for provenance. So, if you’re kicking back with a craft beer and some local tapas or watching the sunset with a cocktail on our cantilevered terrace, Panorama is truly a unique dining and social experience.

Take a day and relax with us, pamper yourself with a spa treatment in our boutique Cork city spa, Bellevue Spa. Treat yourself to the indulgent delights of Panorama Bistro, including a decident afternoon tea. Take a dip in Motion Health Club. Enjoy a stroll through Ireland's only hotel Victorian Sunken garden. Watch a movie in Cork's only in-house hotel cinema, "The Cameo" and end your day with a cocktail on our spectacular terrace. 

There truly is something to everyone, all you need to do is book your stay.

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.
