The Montenotte Hotel in Cork city has unveiled the latest development in the hote’s evolution, a brand-new rooftop bar and terrace named The Glasshouse with uninterrupted views of Cork city and county.

Perched high above the city, the hotel is the former 18th century residence of a merchant prince and the new rooftop bar addition comes on the back of a €1m investment.

Opening just in time for the August Bank Holiday weekend, this new addition aims to elevate the experience for guests – offering an architecturally designed, art-deco inspired setting to enjoy some Cork hospitality.

While taking in the views, guests can enjoy a range of exclusive botanical signature cocktails, specially crafted by The Montenotte Hotel’s mixologists who have taken their inspiration from the Victorian gardens that surround The Glasshouse.

General Manager Brian Bowler said: “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.”

For guests hoping to be one of the first to experience The Glasshouse in August, The Montenotte Hotel have introduced a limited edition Sunset Breakaway Package. From €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 The Royale Rose – one of the new 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.
