The Montenotte

Cinematic views and contemporary glamour at this charismatic Cork city escape

The Montenotte epitomises the chic urban retreat. Blue on the outside, and dotted with luxurious, sit-in-me-now velvet furniture inside, it blends old world glamour with contemporary style. Throw in a spa, a swimming pool, and one of the most celebrated rooftop bars around, and you’ve got a slick city escape.

The hilltop views may be pretty spectacular – but The Montenotte looks good whichever way you turn. Start with the Panorama Bistro and its long terrace, or the beautifully manicured sunken gardens. Then there are the funky rooms and suites, which balance pops of colour with outrageously comfortable beds. Old-school movie lovers will find a home from home in the Cameo Cinema. While cocktail connoisseurs won’t want to miss the gin-infused masterpieces served in The Glasshouse bar.

If you can tear yourself away, the hotel is only a 15-minute walk into the city centre. Discover art galleries, markets, museums, and distilleries, as well as Cork’s famous city gaol. Or hop on a boat for a trip around the harbour. The staff are on hand to book you an Eco Taxi to take a load off – and in keeping with their sustainable mindset, will hand over a little packet of wildflower seeds to you before you go.

Enjoy your stay!

Love and warmth overlooking southern Ireland's cultural heart

We booked the Merchant Suite for a couple of nights before we returned home to the States. The staff was so welcoming and helpful, accommodating and flexible with our two small globetrotting daughters. The degree of personal and personalized attention and service we received was incomparable. The Montenotte's Read more[SPLIT]Read lesslocation a short walk from Cork's haute cuisine, shopping, and cultural activities was perfect: far enough to be quiet, close enough to access. The hotel cuisine was outstanding, as were the luxurious surroundings and attention to detail. We absolutely loved our stay there, and are so looking forward to coming back.
