The Montenotte Hotel reveal new panoramic rooftop bar, The Glasshouse

High on everyone’s bucket list when visiting Cork is to take in the breath-taking views from the Panorama Terrace at The Montenotte Hotel. Perched high above the city, this former 18th century residence of a Merchant Prince and now an award-winning vibrant design led hotel has just announced yet another very compelling reason for staycationers to visit this destination hotel.

Constantly evolving to create memorable experiences for guests, The Montenotte Hotel, will be revealing the latest edition to this destination hotel, a brand-new rooftop bar and terrace, aptly named ‘The Glasshouse’, with uninterrupted views of Cork city and county. The Glasshouse has been designed with creativity, offering a distinctively eclectic vibe, full of fun and will offer an experience like no other. Opening just in time for the August Bank Holiday weekend with an investment in the region of €1 million, this new addition aims to elevate the experience for guests – offering an architecturally designed, art-deco inspired setting to enjoy the very best of Cork hospitality. While taking in the views, guests can enjoy a range of exclusive botanical signature cocktails, specially crafted by The Montenotte Hotel’s award-winning mixologists which have taken their inspiration from the Victorian gardens that surround The Glasshouse.

Commenting on the announcement, General Manager Brian Bowler stated, this exciting new development for The Montenotte Hotel has been in the works for some time and we can’t wait for the final reveal, just a few weeks away! We have been working closely with leading architects Henry J Lyons to create something spectacular, paying close attention to every detail from the show-stopping glass exterior and custom-built bridge to bespoke art-deco inspired interiors and enticing cocktail and drinks menus. Everything about this rooftop bar will ooze high end sophistication and will offer an exclusive appeal – the perfect location for pre or post dinner drinks, enjoying the wonderful views of Cork.

Brian added “The Glasshouse will set a new standard and help to ‘raise the bar’ for Cork as a highly desirable destination with a range of amenities giving guests the luxury to rest and relax. As a hotel, we are focussed on continually innovating and always aim to create memorable experiences for guests – The Glasshouse will be no exception!”

For guests hoping to be one of the first to experience The Glasshouse in August, The Montenotte Hotel have introduced an enticing new limited edition ‘Sunset Breakaway Package’. From only €295 per stay, the package includes one night bed & breakfast for two adults, with a reserved table at The Glasshouse on arrival where guests will enjoy “Royale Rose” – one of the new elegant signature cocktails made with their bespoke ‘Montenotte Gin’, fresh strawberries and prosecco, as well as a two course lunch at the Panorama Bistro either on arrival or departure to extend the visit.
