Top romantic spas in Ireland

While trips to far off lands may seem like the perfect place for a romantic holiday, do not underestimate the pulling power of Ireland and its hotel spas. Here are some of our romantic spas in Ireland…


Aghadoe Heights, County Kerry

We’re not even sure how to begin describing the location at Aghadoe Heights - one of the most beautiful spas in Ireland. Looking out onto Lough Leane and Killarney mountains, it is an enchanting environment that’s impossible not to fall in love with. From the award-winning spa to the restaurant, these views are some kind of magical wallpaper for your experience and literally set the scene for a romantic break.

No.1 Pery Square Hotel and Spa, Limerick

At the opposite end of the spectrum, No.1 Pery Square is a city spa in central Limerick. On the banks of the Shannon Estuary, the hotel takes in views of the surrounding Mountains of Clare, from its position in an 1860 Georgian terrace. A refined boutique hotel, everything is done with precision - the spa uses Ireland’s famed VOYA products, and the restaurant is an Irish brasserie with strong French influences that’s been highly acclaimed for its services.

Kilronan Castle, County Roscommon

Can you imagine anything much more romantic than a holiday in a castle, especially one that has its roots deeply intertwined in history? Kilronan Castle is one of the spas in Ireland that has stories to tell for anyone interested in the past, but it has retained its aristocratic luxury in a beautiful spa and grounds filled with blossoms in springtime. Stay in the hotel itself or in cottages in the grounds - either way, it’s a chance to escape to another time.
