All Ireland Marketing Awards - 02 Mar 2009

Spa-ireland.com makes the final.

It's always nice to get some recognition and we've been lucky enough to get shortlisted, and even win, some awards since we launched in November 2007.

This time we're swimming with the sharks as we're one of the 5 finalists in the AIM All Ireland Marketing Awards 2009. Our category is for Tourism Marketing and we're up against The Guinness Storehouse, Tourism Ireland, Ovation Ireland and Hotels.com.

Hundreds of entries were submitted to the Marketing Institute of Ireland which is especially important given the current backdrop of negative economic conditions. The adjudicators felt that many excellent entries did not make it onto the shortlist so we're pretty pleased we've made it this far (and yes, we'd still like to win it!).

Tee Off at the Ice House - 02 Mar 2009

Golf (and maybe Spa!) with Professional Golfer David Kearney.

The Ice House, Ballina, Co. Mayo has joined forces with professional golfer David Kearney to bring you a very exciting Ladies Golf School package. This package aims to teach the very basics of the game and at the same time offer a pampering  few days away at this very chic retreat.

David Kearney has been a professional golfer for 17 years and in this time his travels have taken him to work in America, Australia, Canada and Turkey where he gained valuable knowledge on how to optimise players’ performance.   Alongside his private clients, David is a swing tutor to the PGA at headquarters in The Belfry and has been National Coach to the Irish Ladies Golf Union for the past 5 years.

Ladies Golf School begins with a warm welcome at The Ice House from general Managers, Dara Cruise and Claire O’Sullivan with fresh scones and coffee.

Awaken refreshed after a comfortable night's sleep to a fabulous breakfast and spend half the day at The Chill Spa and the other half on the Golf Course. A light lunch will be served and once again dinner will be available for all at Pier Restaurant with the obligatory pre-drinks beforehand. Day three begins with breakfast and then departure to Enniscrone Golf Club where the ladies will enjoy a Nine Hole Golf Competition with lunch, prize giving and final farewells.

For just €495 per person enjoy Ladies Golf School which includes single or double occupancy accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, golf school with David Kearney and a one hour spa treatment at The Chill Spa with complimentary access to the Thermal Suite.

Snakes Alive! - 02 Mar 2009

Venom Facial available exclusively at Queen Beauty Emporium.

Queen Beauty Emporium, the home of high-style hair, makeup and skincare, announces another beauty first – the addition of the Venom Facial to their list of exclusive skin treats.

The Venom Facial uses Planet Skincare products such as the Instant Firming Serum and the cult Daily Moisturiser to replicate the effects of real snake venom on the skin, plumping, tightening and brightening for an A-list glow before a big night out. And although Planet Skincare is loved by celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow and Demi Moore, this special treat comes at a price even cash-strapped recessionistas can afford – just €60.

“This facial is specifically designed for giving the skin that celebrity glow, and creating the perfect canvas for beautiful makeup,” says Leonard Daly, beauty expert at Queen. “It’s the ideal treat before a special night out.” For the ultimate pre-party pamper, combine the Venom Facial with a makeup application in Queen’s luxurious Throne Room (just €100.00 until the end of March)."

The Venom Facial is now available exclusively in Ireland at Queen Beauty Emporium, 66-67 Aungier Street, Dublin 2. Tel 01-4789633 or email Leonard@queenbe.ie.
