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 spa in Ireland 2019. 

When choosing the Irish Tatler Spa of the Year 2019, there are many different considerations. Value for money, the most exceptional standards of customer care that – above all – feels genuine, incredible levels of training, high-end facilities with an exceptional finish, and finely-honed attention to detail are all top requirements. As well as that, staff with a passion for the job that is palpable from the moment you cross the threshold of the premises is key.

From the second you arrive at Adare Manor, and into the spa, you are their most important VIP. Something exemplified whether they’re being judged or not, every single guest feels the same attention.

Attention to detail is something they master. It’s both an endorsement that they are leading the pack at an industry level, and a guarantee that a booking here for a customer will wow beyond their wildest expectations.

Put simply, The Spa at Adare Manor delivers on all of the above. The intuition shown by the spa staff is unparalleled, the welcome received, out of this world. Located in County Limerick, this spa has a name and a wildly buzzed-about reputation, but the fact is that it lives up to it in every way possible.
