Spa & Leisure
The spa at the Slieve Donard resort is two floors of space dedicated to health, fitness, and relaxation. With views across the Irish Sea, the ground floor is a space for being active, with a gym, pool, rock sauna, and amethyst steam room, vitality pools, Zen Fitness Suite, and drench showers.
The second floor however, is all about pampering, offering ESPA treatments that include hot stone therapies, facials, manicures, pedicures, bespoke massages, and Rituals inspired by Ayurvedic practices.
Hotel & Accommodation
Once the ‘end of line’ luxury holiday destination for the Belfast and County Down Railway, Slieve Donard first opened in 1898 and was considered one of the most forward thinking destinations of its time, being almost completely self sufficient, with its own bakery, vegetable gardens, pigs, laundry, and power plant. Today it has 178 bedrooms, and the Royal County Down golf course is right on its doorstep.
In true, hospitable style, the hotel covers all bases when it comes to food, from sophisticated fine dining in the Oak Restaurant, to the more relaxed atmosphere of the Lighthouse Lounge which serves healthy fare such as smoothies, salads, and sandwiches. Alternatively, the resort is also home to The Percy French, at the foot of the Mourne Mountains, which is ideal for enjoying a pint by the fire.
