From towns and cities to remote peninsulas on the coast, the breadth of opportunity for romantic escapes, family holidays and group celebrations and hen parties, is vast. Spa breaks at Galgorm Resort and Spa for example in County Antrim, offer the excellence at every turn; contemporary design, award-winning food, and views across lush parkland with the River Maine flowing through the estate.
Alternatively, a day spa near Belfast at the likes of Culloden Estate and Spa offer rural bliss and country house elegance a few minutes from the excitement of the city, and spa deals at Corick House Hotel and Spa in County Tyrone is a well established favourite with historic roots going back to the 17th century in the heart of the Clogher Valley.
Some of the best UK spa breaks can be found in this part of the world, and amongst the best in Northern Ireland is the famed Slieve Donard Resort and Spa. In addition to the exquisite contemporary facilities that made it a winner at the Irish Tatler Spa Awards in 2017, it has splendid views onto the Irish Sea and the Mourne Mountains, which allow it to epitomise the best of Ireland.
On that note, one cannot talk about hotels and spas in Northern Ireland without elaborating on the scenery. The region is blessed with some of the most beautiful landscapes, and another wonderful example of that is the family friendly hotel spa, Lough Erne Resort. On its own 36-hole golf course, it is set against the awe-inspiring scenery of the Fermanagh Lakelands on a peninsular that gives the impression of being on a private island. There is so much this region has to offer, but its views are extremely hard to beat.
