Spa Style Winners - 15 Jul 2013
The Spa at The Shelbourne
Our newest Spa Ireland spa is the deserving winner of The Irish Tatler Spa Style Award, due to its offering of all the luxury and elegance of a destination spa. The judges particularly noted the opulent relaxation room, which overlooks the iconic St. Stephen's Green, plus the architectural features which make the interior of The Spa truly stylish and original.

Irish Tatler Spa Awards - 01 Jul 2013
Spa Ireland Winners
The July edition of Irish Tatler Magazine has 18 gorgeous pages dedicated to the best of Irish spa and we are thrilled to see so many of our Spa Ireland partners getting warm credit.
Overall winner and Hotel Spa of the year is the Spa at Aghadoe Heights in Killarney. Aghadoe was one of the first Irish hotels to 'get' spa and that experience, plus a genuinely caring attitude to guests, keeps them a nudge ahead of the competition. Boutique Spa of the Year is the Spa at Dromoland Castle and this discrete and compact oasis within the glorious surroundings of the Castle and Estate is a well deserving winner of the title. Best Service is at The Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt, one of Spa Ireland users favourites, with two of our other partners, Delphi and Solis Lough Eske getting highly commended awards; which proves our view, service is just as important as surroundings and can often be the make or break factor when judging a treatment or spa visit.
The Spa Style Award goes to one of our newest spas, The Spa at The Shelbourne, elegant classiness winning the day; and congratulations to Laura Ryan at the White Horse Spa at the Lodge at Doonbeg who wins the Best Therapist award; two other Spa Ireland partners therapists also getting Highly Commended - Kasia Wojcik at Fota and Sinead Madigan at Mount Juliet.
Last but not least, the People's Choice Award went to Oceo Spa at Seafield, Co Wexford. In fact 8 of the Top 10 spas listed on the Peoples Choice final roll of honour are Spa Ireland partners so - well done to all of them! For more buy Irish Tatler and use it to help you plan your next Spa escape.
