Christmas at the Montenotte Hotel …

we have it all wrapped up for you!

Let us wrap you up in the scent of mulled wine, the warmth of beautiful surroundings, the exhausting but glorious feeling of finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones and the best ‘can-do’ service from our team of merry elves … that’s the Christmas spirit at the Montenotte Hotel.

With Santa’s countdown well and truly underway, let us take the stress out of your Christmas list! It’s a busy time indeed, but it’s a special time and one we want you to savour with us at the Montenotte.

Located just a stone’s throw from some of Ireland’s best stores, the Montenotte Hotel will open the doors for you to Brown Thomas Cork, leading ladies boutiques like Samui and Sheena’s, handmade jewellery of Tuula’s Designworks to renowned Keanes Jewellers, from toy stores like Smyths to wooden crafts and quirky children’s gifts at Pinocchios, not to mention Saville Menswear and Fitzgeralds, to Christmas favourites like the English Market, Marks & Spencers, Debenhams and so many more. No need to worry about chaotic traffic or parking, we have you covered! After a satisfying shopping excursion, enjoy the best Christmas atmosphere at Cork city’s buzzing bars, to our own unique Panorama Bar & Bistro where you can experience our special whiskey tasting menu with friends, or request your own special cocktail from our resident mixologist, while taking in the views of Cork city.

At the end of the day, unwind with a dip in our newly refurbished pool or take a wander with through our sunken Victorian Gardens. Christmas movies will be screening nightly in our private luxury cinema, The Cameo, while you cosy up after a relaxing and fruitful day of shopping.

And just in case you haven’t found the perfect gift, we even have our own unique gifts for Christmas from Afternoon Tea, Dinner, Movie & Dinner, Motion Leisure Club Membership to gift vouchers for a luxury weekend at Ireland’s leading city break hotel, The Montenotte. It’s one present that they are guaranteed to love!

Tastefully and uniquely decorated for yuletide celebrations, we love Christmas at the Montenotte Hotel. So, let us fill your stockings with joy and yuletide cheer, and this year enjoy a special Christmas in Cork.
