Whether you’re after a few spa treatments during the day or you want a whole weekend away, there’s bound to be a hotel meant for you. Here are some of our favourite hotels that will leave you feeling like a brand-new person.
If the kids are driving you mad, this is the place for you since it’s an adult only retreat. Located in Wexford, it’s just 1 and a half hours away from Dublin airport- so really easy to get to, especially if you have a hire car or live in the area.
Monart spa is surrounded by over 100 acres of lush Irish countryside, forests and lakes. It’s home to a sauna, steam room, salt grotto, hydrotherapy pool and more- so a stay at Monart gives you the full spa experience. Monart focuses on improving the wellbeing of their guests.

Fota Island Resort
If you are looking for a spiritual experience that brings you closer to nature without getting your hands dirty- look no further than Fota Island Resort. The resort is located in Cork. This amazing retreat comes with serene woodland views that are easily seen through huge glass windows. Much like the other options on this list, Fota island is home to a whole host of spa facilities and classes. One really unique feature of Fota Island is the hydrotherapy baths, where you can choose from unusual ingredients such as green tea and chocolate.
Fota island resort spa has both luxury rooms and self-catering holiday lodges, which are perfect if you’re travelling as a group. Rooms start at €150 a night, and lodges start at around €240. If you book a lodge alongside 4-6 other adults and split the cost, this can be pretty good value for money.
The Cliff House Hotel
Are you a beach lover? Because if so, The Cliff House Hotel is probably right up your street. This spa hotel comes with breath-taking sea views, so a trip to the coast is just a stone’s throw away. Having the beach on your doorstep opens up a lot of opportunities, such as sea-kayaking, horse riding and runs out on the sand. If you’re an outdoorsy type, this hotel spa is the perfect balance between relaxation and adventure. To tie in even further with the beach theme, you can take a relaxing seaweed bath- said to lower body stress and relieve skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.
