You can be assured that your purchases are eco-friendly. Bath & Body oils, Moisturisers, Hand & Body Washes, and Salt scrubs are 100% natural with organic ingredients. Towels are 85% – 100% Bamboo – a fully sustainable plant, grown without pesticides, fertilizers or insecticides and made into fabric without use of chemicals (more good news - bamboo is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal so can be washed at lower temperatures).

Falls Hotel & River Spa - NEW! - 14 Nov 2008
Spa & Surf - cool packages for surfing girls (and guys)
Only 3 miles from Ireland's surfers paradise, Lahinch Beach in Co. Clare, the Falls Hotel & River Spa is keeping it cool with its spa and surf packages. Spend the day learning to surf, then soothe your tired muscles with a deep tissue massage at River Spa. You’ll be in excellent hands with Spa Manager, Ade, a Conde Nast award-winning therapist.
If surfing is not your thing, think about the Burren Walking Package which features a half-day walking around this magical landscape followed by a well-earned sole delight foot treatment. Or you could try The Hawk Walk - a guided walk through the woods surrounding the hotel accompanied by experienced handlers who will give you the opportunity to handle, fly and feed your very own hawk.
Platinum Therapy - NEW - 11 Nov 2008
New Dublin Day Spa live on Spa-ireland.com
We're really pleased to introduce Platinum Therapy, the latest urban day spa to feature on spa-ireland.com.
Located very close to University College Dublin, and less than 5 minutes drive from the Radisson SAS St Helen's Hotel, this is a professional and well managed day spa. Offering a wide variety of treatments, including the popular Mama Mio maternity treatments, the emphasis is on quality care during your time in the spa coupled with advanced after-care advice and the option of purchasing top notch products.
This is the first of our spa partners to use Nimue, the multi-award winning Australian spa product whilst another top Australian brand, Uspa, is used in the extensive range of body treatments.
Platinum Therapy was founded by Olivia Pakenham, a full-time working vet with a passion for skincare who has utilised her own knowledge and expertise to create a day spa which is unpretentious and in our opinion, well worth a visit.
