Bliss at the beautiful Kinsale Hotel & Spa

Well what can I say? There are worse things to be doing on a Saturday than taking a trip to Kinsale Hotel & Spa for an afternoon of absolute bliss, definitely one of the best spas I’ve been too, and I’m lucky enough to have visited quite a few!

At the moment I arrived at the spa, I was greeted by the lovely spa manager Roisin, who was so friendly and informative about all treatments and more importantly the products that would be used from the fabulous Elemis range, which left my skin feeling brand new.

I had two treatments during my spa day. It was so hard to choose them as there was such a variety of treatments to choose from, whether it’s a girl's day or a romantic spa weekend, this spa has something to suit everyone.

I narrowed it down to the hot oil back, neck and shoulder massage and then the booster facial which did not disappoint.

My therapist Brona was so friendly and explained everything before the treatments commenced, after which I was left to totally zone out and relax for two hours.

When a therapist listens to your needs and answers your concerns on what you are looking from your treatments, it's always a help and puts you at ease, and Brona did exactly that. I knew I was in safe hands when she told me she had been employed at the spa for over ten years!

After my treatments, Brona brought to the beautiful relaxation room, with amazing views overlooking Kinsale. We were spoiled for choice when it came to our choice of beverage and fruit, and of course it was great to chill with my friend, who was also impressed with her choice of treatments.

Our day was completed with a beautiful lunch in the very trendy Rockpool Bar & Restaurant and, as weather was so nice, we were able to sit outside to take in the amazing views surrounding the hotel. It was the perfect girly afternoon treat and anyone looking to relax and distress needs to book a well-deserved afternoon here.

I would highly recommend someone of any age to take a trip down and see for yourself. I will most certainly be taking a trip back for an afternoon of bliss, The Kinsale Hotel & Spa gets a huge thumbs up from me!
