- Its careful choice of spa products to deliver uniquely beautiful treatments
This blissful setting creates a joyful tone for a relaxed break. Put the mobile phone away and enjoy the chatter of birds and the unique bliss of life on a working (if rather more elegant than standard) farm. All of this lays the groundwork for you to head to the on-site spa in the perfect frame of mind. Set against the majesty of the mountains and the sweeping beauty of the Ring of Gullion, the spa has been purposefully designed as the ultimate retreat. Hidden in the estate grounds, you start your spa experience in the water therapy area, complete with a hydro and exercise pool accompanied by views of the walled garden and farmland. Then move to the laconicum to stimulate circulation before cooling down in the aroma mist and drench showers. To top it off, you can spend time enjoying the view in the outdoor hot tub or the tylarium, which is a combination of a sauna and steam bath.
Treatments at the spa are equally carefully thought out. Using a combination of Elemis and Caudalie products, therapists offer a wide range of holistic face and body treatments. Inspired by nature, Elemis is a leading British luxury skincare brand, recognised the world over for its luxurious, indulgent approach. Meanwhile, Caudalie describes itself as ‘beauty from the vine’, beginning in a family vineyard in Bordeaux and offering effective skincare from natural ingredients derived from grapes and the grapevine.
