The ESPA at The Europe Hotel & Resort is predominantly constructed of glass, and with very good reason; it looks out onto the Killarney area’s largest lake, Lough Lein, and the McGillycuddy Reeks Mountain beyond. It is that backdrop that sets the scene for the all-encompassing spa, which, designed by the spa deity, ESPA, includes a fitness studio complete with Power Plates and a Kinesis wall, as well as an indoor infinity pool, indoor/outdoor vitality pool, and a complete thermal suite, featuring a salt water pool, lifestyle showers, an ice fountain, sauna, steam room, and relaxation areas.
Of course, the treatments are all by ESPA as well, and thanks to the purpose built area, this is the place to experience them to their best advantage. There are 16 treatment rooms in total, two express beauty suites, manicure and pedicure thrones, and a make-up counter. The philosophies embodied combine European and Eastern principles with the common goal of relaxation and restoration.
