Hit Refresh: 3 Irish Spa Retreats to Visit When You Need To Unwind

If you’ve come back after the Christmas break feeling less than refreshed, a SPA WEEKEND could be just what you need to avoid burnout …


Monart is offering a five day, all-inclusive detox package which includes a personalised programme of treatments, a carefully selected menu and exercise routine. The treatment rooms and lounge at Monart have also undergone a complete renovation, led by interior designer Patricia Carr who selected a tree bark like wall covering for the walls within the new treatment rooms. The result is a celebration of the natural elements and a seamless fit with the signature style of tranquility at Monart Destination Spa. Monart also encourages no mobile phones, with WiFi only available in the reception area. Just what you need to actually do that digital detox you’ve been talking about for so long … www.monart.ie.
