Tried & Tested – For an Unforgettable Experience Visit Ireland’s Best Hotel Spa

Spoil yourself this spring with a trip to ASHFORD CASTLE‘s new spa and experience their luxurious SIGNATURE TREATMENT  where you will ENJOY over 100 minutes of utter BLISS.



WHERE: Ashford Castle, Cong, Co Mayo.

WHY: Following its €47m renovation, Ashford has a completely new spa (already named Ireland’s best hotel spa at the 2016 World Spa Awards): where there used to be a few treatment rooms, there’s now a beautifully lit pool, fitness room, hammam and steam room, all housed in an elegant modern glasshouse with views over the lake.

WHAT: The Signature Treatment (€110), more than 100 minutes of utter bliss using organic seaweed-based Voya oils and creams and featuring a back, shoulder and head massage, facial and amazing pressure point foot massage.

THE EXPERIENCE: The test of any spa is its therapists, and we were in highly skilled hands with Rachel Murphy – the treatment is world-class and deeply therapeutic for mind and body.

WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Try the Pure Flow treatment, since Ashford is the only place in Ireland that offers it. It’s the latest technology in improving circulation and optimising blood flow and is used by top athletes. It compresses leg muscles in such a way that you walk the equivalent of 5km in half an hour. So you earn your five-star dinner in Ashford’s glorious dining room without leaving the bed.

TAKE HOME: Voya’s silky Angelica Serratus body oil, €38.

BOOK: An overnight escape with dinner and a treatment; see for details.
