To continue our ongoing commitment to support Irish arts and culture, we are delighted to host the fourth year of the annual sculpture exhibition, in association with prestigious The Kildare Gallery. The exhibition features a spectacular collection of 47 individual sculptures, from 21 of Ireland’s leading artists. This year sees the works of 9 new artists on display, including ‘Secret Space’ by David McGlynn, ‘Manbird’ by Fidelma Massey and ‘Diving into the Ocean of Life’ by Dawn Conn. 

The diversified collection of sculptures—in bronze and forged metal among other materials – are a unique collection of modern and contemporary art, with eclectic themes that celebrate nature and movement.

THE EXHIBITION

Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to visit the Sculpture Exhibition and wander around the wonder of our Victorian sunken gardens, which were rediscovered and restored to their former glory of 100 years ago in 2018. The exhibition is open daily from 10am. 

Commenting at the exhibition, General Manager at The Montenotte Hotel, Frits Potgieter said “As a hotel that has an ongoing connection to the arts, this exhibition is very special for us and something we look forward to every year. Our Victorian gardens have been transformed into a magical sculpture garden and we would like to thank each artist and The Kildare Gallery for bringing this striking showcase to life. We hope our visitors enjoy the chance to view some of the best sculptures in the country over the summer!”

THE KILDARE GALLERY

Ruth Liddle from the Kildare Gallery said, “We are so delighted to be back in Cork showcasing contemporary designs from leading sculptors at The Montenotte Hotel. The elegant Victorian sunken garden is a beautiful backdrop to this unique collection of vibrant artwork by our family of contemporary artists at The Kildare Gallery. The collection is one of imagination and positivity and we are so appreciative that The Montenotte Hotel also shares these attributes. We are so grateful for their continued and real support.”

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.
