Key Features

  • Award-winning spa therapists
  • A unique history alongside a contemporary spa
  • Two floors of spa facilities

Overlooking a windswept Irish beach, the Spa at Slieve Donard is an exquisite, award-winning haven of escapism. Here you will find that contrasts of light and dark mingle to create inspiring and comforting spaces to relax, restore and revitalise while the majestic Mountains of Mourne and the rolling sand dunes of County Down provide the perfect backdrop. Experience healing heat experiences, relaxation rooms and a gold flecked mosaic pool, surrounded by breathtaking floor-to-ceiling sea views.

After using the facilities, head to the cocoon of their treatment rooms where you will discover ESPA treatments fusing advanced techniques with ancient therapies to deliver the best bespoke therapeutic experiences. It is little wonder that one of their own spa therapists was awarded Irish Tatler’s Spa Therapist Award for her compassionate and intuitive healing approach, which is very much the embodiment of the spa ethos at Slieve Donard. Aromatic and pure essential oils work in harmony with powerful plant extracts and deeply nourishing marine elements to create a collection of treatments and products that are both calming and luxurious.

Hotel & Accommodation

Key Features

  • Exceptional views of the Irish Sea and Mourne Mountain
  • A fine dining restaurant
  • Exquisite design featuring materials reflecting the natural environment
  • Its own bakery, vegetable gardens, pigs, laundry, and power plant
  • Location next to the Royal County Down golf course

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 Inn at the foot of the Mourne Mountains, which is ideal for enjoying a pint by the fire.
