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 sustainable spa in Ireland.

Some might believe the concepts of pure luxury and conscious sustainability to be mutually exclusive, but those people have yet to pay The Spa at Ashford Castle a visit. A brand new category, but one we feel is incredibly relevant to the times we live in, Ashford Castle has not only set the standard for this category but has also already raised the bar in terms of running a successful business with a sustainable mindset.
From banning single-use materials, implementing a sustainable water service and overhauling its linen and towel deliveries, it goes above and beyond. As well as that, The Spa at Ashford Castle trades plastic for compostable wherever possible, proving that it is possible to achieve a uniquely opulent experience with a minimised ecological footprint. Bonus points too, for the bamboo toothbrushes placed in every room.
