Take a short break from your hectic life—it’s time to rest and rejuvenate.

Let’s face it, life can get crazy sometimes, and it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our busy schedules. We often forget to take a moment for ourselves and indulge in a little self-care, so as far as we’re concerned, a day of relaxation and pampering definitely does the soul some good. So if you’re looking to have a day dedicated to wellness, serenity, and self-love – you're in luck as Ireland has some spectacular options. 

So to take the stress out of finding the perfect spa break for you, we took it upon ourselves to be buffed, primed, and polished across the country (hard work, we know) in order to bring you a curated list of the best service, therapists, and properties in Ireland. The tenth annual Irish Tatler Spa Awards, In Association With Kerstin Florian, were held on Monday, September 23 in the Brasserie at The Marker Hotel. Celebrating the best spas and wellness destinations, Ireland's much-decorated spa industry gathered together to celebrate excellence in Irish spa services and treatments all in order to bring you a curated guide to best spas in Ireland. 

Whether you’ve got tired, city-beaten skin that needs reviving with facial, stressed-out muscles that need soothing with a massage, or you’re simply in search of somewhere lush for a little ‘me time’, this is the best wellness retreat in Ireland 2019. 

There are wellness treatments and then there’s the complete wellness treatment at Druids Glen Resort. Located in County Wicklow, the treatment begins with a consultation from multi-award-winning intuitive healer Sinead de Hora in which she handles the topics of both mental and physical health with care and compassion. Without even placing a hand on their body, our judge could feel the heat radiating from her hands while an electrical current ran through every limb.

Physical sensations aside, our judge also felt a huge catharsis and peace both during and after the treatment. The package doesn’t end here though, once de Hora has spent time aligning your chakras and awakens your intuition and connects the voice to your soul, she then goes onto design a bespoke treatment that caters to your every need. It truly is a highly intuitive guided meditation like no other.

If you’re looking for the definition of self-care, this is it.
