“A Garden is a Friend you can visit anytime”  - Old Proverb


At the Montenotte Hotel, we anticipate the needs of our boutique hotel guests and visitors. After a busy day, whether at meetings in the city or shopping in Cork’s many malls, we invite you to wander through our Sunken Victorian Garden and enjoy the aromatic scents of lavender, myrtle and rosemary while the soothing sound of our fountain relaxes both mind and body.

Our proud heritage, as a grand home to the merchant princes of Cork over 100 years ago, was reaffirmed when the sunken Victorian garden was recently rediscovered. Overgrowth had hidden the wonder of this secret garden and thanks to a labour of love, our landscape gardeners have restored this unique feature to its former glory for you to enjoy.

The Sunken Victorian Garden at the luxury Montenotte Hotel is one of a number of very unique attributes and special features for hotel guests and visitors. Whether gazing across Cork city and the River Lee from the Panorama Bistro & Terrace, wandering through our restful Sunken Victorian Garden, or unwinding with a movie in The Cameo cinema, the Montenotte Hotel is waiting here for you to enjoy a very special stay at our unique hotel.

MY MONTENOTTE EXPERIENCE

This Saturday, on February 1st, I ventured down to Cork for a weekend break in the picturesque and beautifully modern, Montenotte Hotel.
As they say, January is the only month with twice as many days as the rest. Maybe it’s the post-Christmas, back to reality, dark at 4pm aspect, but January really does drag. The first day of Spring was the perfect time for a trip away. Matt drove and we arrived to check-in at 2pm, bringing the total journey time to just under 3 hours.

As always, if anyone has any questions regarding the stay, please do let me know. I am always happy to answer!
All my foodie love,
Fifi

HISTORY BEGINS WITH A MERCHANT PRINCE

Lee View House

 

In 2017 the management team of the Montenotte hotel decided to embark on uncovering the history of our unique hotel. Having limited knowledge on its previous residence we commissioned a local historian, Margaret Lantry, recommended by UCC for her knowledge of Cork’s Merchant princes. The research project took over 12 months but the history uncovered and the stories told were remarkable.

The research documents, the background history, to the houses and the hotels on the site preliminary research was conducted involving the examination of the land records including ordinance survey, name books and letters, the tithe allotment books and valuation office records. The 1901 and 1911 censuses and Cork city street directories were also examined as were street directories since 1867. Other sources used where newspapers for mentions of the Lee view hotel and country club hotel in order to find out more about their history.
