After a busy day, be it at meetings or shopping in Cork city, we invite you to wander through our sunken Victorian garden during your stay and enjoy the aromatic scents of lavender, myrtle and rosemary while the soothing sound of our fountain relaxes both mind and body.

The original building of The Montenotte Hotel was formerly home to a Merchant Prince of Cork over 100 years ago, and it's heritage was reaffirmed when the sunken Victorian garden were rediscovered in early 2018. The wonder of this secret garden was hidden due to overgrowth but thanks to a labour of love, our landscape gardeners have restored this unique feature to its former glory for guests to enjoy.

The Gardens were designed by Dominik Cullinane from Dominik Cullinane Garden Designs. We have an amazing Team of three Gardeners including our Head Gardener Miguel Gil Gonzalez Carrascosa.

Being one of the top hotels in Cork, there are so many unique experiences at our Cork hotel including enjoying a stroll in our splendid Victorian gardens, taking in the unrivalled views of Cork City and harbour, savour a delicious meal in the Panorama Bistro while you can also opt for some outdoor dining and drinks on our heated botanical Panorama Terrace. You now have The Glasshouse to visit, where guests are led from the Panorama Terrace of the main hotel, down a sweeping staircase, connecting to a new purpose-built glass bridge to the terrace of The Glasshouse and are greeted on arrival by an impressive tall apex glass exterior and stunning soft pink outdoor furnishings, the views of the garden from here are stunning

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.
