Giving someone a voucher for a spa, or booking them a treatment at a LOVELY RELAXING VENUE, is a thoughtful gift that will be gratefully received in this season of madness. Better still, go along too. Here are three destinations to consider:
1. A voucher for the Well Spa at Cliff at Lyons would be up there with my most-wanted gifts. It was one of my favourite visits of 2018 – the relaxation room alone is exquisite, and the expert treatments use the spa’s own range of beautifully natural products. (A seaweed bath at the Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore is another firm favourite – it’s one of the most bracing and unique beauty treatments we know). Or treat yourself to a yoga retreat with lovely instructor Lou Horgan for two days in January; www.cliffatlyons.ie.
2. From a hair treatment to facials or body treatments with their own Bellevue Botanicals range, the Bellevue Spa at the Montenotte Hotel in Cork city centre is a good spot for a peaceful moment. See www.themontenottehotel.com for details of packages and treatments.
3. Try a traditional Swedish massage, an Elemis face or body treatment, or dry floation, from €45, at the Killashee Hotel spa – it’s not too far from Dublin, but is a little oasis of calm. Splash out on afternoon tea, too (plus it’s not far from Kildare Village for pre-spa sales shopping). www.killasheehotel.com.
