From towns and cities to remote peninsulas on the coast, Ireland’s spa hotels are blessed with a range of uniquely beautiful locations and individual characters. Spa weekend breaks at the likes of the ultra stylish g Hotel in County Galway, which was designed by world renowned milliner Philip Treacy, for example, take on a uniquely contemporary style that is ideal for mother and daughter spa days as well as romantic escapes.
Meanwhile, the romance at the likes of Kilronan Castle with its fairytale architecture stems from a history that harks back to Colonel King Tenison. On the shores of Lough Meelagh, it has private cottages available to hire within the grounds, making for beautiful group getaways with friends thanks to the amount of space available to roam in.
Whether you’re looking for a weekend deal or an indulgent spa day, from Belfast, Dublin and Cork to the Wild Atlantic Way, hotels with spas in Ireland offer a variety and quality of experience that has been something of a best kept secret. Some of the most innovative and contemporary spa experiences are available here; The Europe Resort, for example, houses an Elemis designed spa that is at the cutting edge of knowledge and technology.
Meanwhile, Aghadoe Heights in County Kerry, with panoramic views of Lough Leane and the Killarney mountains is an award-winning destination that’s earned it an Irish Tatler Spa Award amongst other accolades.
For a longer spa escape, the likes of Fota Island Resort must not be ignored. Offering beautiful prenatal treatments as well as a wealth of facilities, it sits on a small island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland’s only wildlife park. So in addition to its many facilities, it also provides entertainment and space for family breaks or groups of friends.
