The Montenotte In Cork Launches Woodland Suite Experience

The Montenotte in Cork has has announced it will be launching a new Woodland Suite Experience in August 2024.

The Woodland Suite Experience will include nine new Woodland Suites and River Suites, as well as an exclusive residents-only. Clubhouse.

'Urban Resort'

"With the launch of the Woodland Suites and River Suites we aim to cultivate an environment where guests are not just pampered but also inspired to embrace a true sense of wanderlust, take in the incredible natural surroundings, magnificent views, and indulge in a myriad of curated experiences available throughout their stay," said Frits Potgieter, general manager of The Montenotte.

"Here, the concept of running wild is not only encouraged but very much celebrated. We look forward to welcoming guests to reconnect with themselves and experience a complete sense of escapism at our urban resort.”

Hilltop Views

With an investment of over €7.5 million, each suite is perched on the hilltop, with views overlooking the River Lee, Cork Harbour, and Cork City. The suites are complete with Italian travertine and oak timber floor finishes, free-standing baths and exclusive private terraces.


The River Suites will feature living sedum roofs allowing the architecture to blend into the surrounding woodlands, as well as offer a habitat for wildlife and vegetation.

'New Haven'

The private clubhouse will be used as a gathering spot for guests of the Woodland Suite Experience.

"With the highly anticipated launch of the Clubhouse, the Woodland Suites and River Suites, we have put much thought into crafting this new haven and consideration on how we want to contribute to our local community as we move forward as not just an urban resort, but an urban resort with integrity,” said Frankie & Jo Whelehan, owners of The Montenotte.


In celebration of The Woodland Suite Experience, The Montenotte has partnered with Irish charity Hometree to launch the ‘Nights-for-Nature’ tree planting initiative.

Hometree’s core value is centred around conserving the native woodlands in Ireland and so for every stay at The Woodland Suite Experience, a tree will be planted in honour of the guests to support the conservation of Ireland’s woodlands, promote land regeneration, and enhance biodiversity.
