Montenotte is an area in the north-east of Cork City, Ireland, which had an influx of wealthier merchants and the prosperous middle classes in the early to mid-19th century.[1] Situated on a hill facing south over the River Lee, Montenotte acquired numerous substantial residences, some of them set in miniature estates graced with fine terraced gardens. Its favourable outlook was downgraded by the development of large-scale industry in the Marina area across the river in the early 20th century. Many of the larger houses now have institutional uses, or have been divided into apartments.

Famous residents include Rugby player Ronan O'Gara and Financial guru Ken O'Mahony.

The suburb comprises two electoral districts (Montenotte A and Montenotte B) within the Cork North–Central constituency of the Irish Dáil.[2] As of 2002, the respective populations were 1,853 and 2,723.[3]
