Nestled in Wicklow, the Wells Spa takes its name from the historical Macreddin Village. Since the 5th century, ancient wells have supplied the area with pure water, and the spa only uses water sourced from these same natural springs. Taking advantage of geothermal activity, the Wells Spa is heated using Ireland’s biggest geothermal hotel system.
Residents of the hotel can enjoy the spa’s Thermal Suite. However, The Wells takes their commitment to serenity seriously and has instigated a booking system for non-treatment guests to make sure the oasis of calm is not disturbed. The adult only spa features an aroma steam room, outdoor hot tub, sauna, heated loungers, plus both wet and dry flotation rooms. A Hammam massage room and serail mud chamber complete the spa offerings, although the hotel also boasts a geothermal heated swimming pool available to both children and adults.
The Wells Spa uses three main brands of product, carefully selected to fit with their organic philosophy. Lucy Annabella Organics are infused with flower and plant oils in 6 different expert blends. Therapists guide clients through choosing the blend that will most benefit them, before offering treatments of immersive, sensual healing.
Flourish Organics products are all hand produced in the Kerry Mountains, using environmentally friendly techniques. One of Ireland’s first certified organic skincare brands, Flourish Organics have partnered with The Wells Spa to create specially designed, exclusive treatments.
The Babor spa range are decadent oils used in treatments with a purpose. Designed to achieve a specific goal, such as improved skin tone or pain relief, the Babor oils enhance the therapeutic effects of massages, wraps and scrubs.
