Whether it's with a friend, family member or a partner it goes without question that a hotel spa break is one of the most enjoyable and relaxing getaways you can experience. While we all appreciate there can be some initial awkwardness if it's the first time you donned swim-wear in-front of your companion very few of us we have had our 2 weeks in the sun this year, so we're all going to be looking a bit pasty. However, the moment you tie that rope on your fluffy hotel robe around your waist is the moment where all negativity should evaporate, for you are now allowed take the personal of a princess (or prince). From outdoor Jacuzzis, plunge pools, sauna and steam rooms, to the luxury of massage on weekday and not a thought of the office in your head, making the most of a hotels spa facilities can be the difference between a great hotel break and an unforgettable one.
The old cliché that spa facilities are just for female visitors is, thankfully, well and truly gone. Men dragging their slipper covered heals from the changing rooms to the wellness room is not a sight you might once have seen. Show me a man that doesn't appreciate a deep tissue massage or seaweed bath and I'll show you a man that doesn't enjoy the finer things in life.
The list of high-quality spa hotels in Ireland continues to grow each year and with the ever-growing list of Go Anywhere gift card partners, our own list of Irish Spa breaks has never been stronger.
