Christmas is a season of gifts. It is your chance to treat your loved ones and show them you care. However, each year without fail, there is the Christmas present panic.

The choices are endless and that is the problem. Perfume and makeup are always solid choices but sometimes you want something extra special with that touch of festive sparkle. A gift that comes from the heart, and one that they will remember and not leave float away in the sea of ‘Christmas gifts we never used’.

Dunboyne Castle is a luxury hotel and spa in the heart of Co. Meath. Surrounded by 21 acres of countryside with a newly refurbished reception, lobby, and terrace lounge, the hotel is the perfect getaway destination for a mini break but it also makes the perfect gift.

Why? Because of the choices.

The first is a gift voucher for the Dunboyne Hotel experience. Gifting that special someone with a present such as this provides them with something that lasts much longer than the initial awe and surprise. This is something they can look forward to and make memories with that they will cherish. If it’s an early Christmas gift, the Dunboyne Hotel is open throughout Christmas, providing the ultimate festive alternative away from home. On Christmas Eve, be treated to a mulled wine reception with mince pies, followed by dinner in the 2 AA Rosette IVY Restaurant. On the big day, you will wake up to a breakfast with bubbles, an extra special visit from Santa Claus, and a traditional Christmas dinner in the Ivy restaurant.

The second is the spa. The word Seoid means gem in the Irish language, and the Seoid spa is exactly that. It’s the essence of calm and if relaxation is what you or your giftee needs, then it is fit for purpose. A hydrotherapy pool, heated pool loungers, sauna, steam room, fully equipped gym and outdoor hot tub make it a tranquillity lovers paradise. A Seoid spa gift voucher provides the luxury of choosing from a range of luxury face & body treatments.

The third is an afternoon tea extravaganza. Is there anything better than being treated like a King or Queen, with three tiers of deliciousness and tea on tap? No, there is not. And you will find it extremely difficult to find someone who would not ravish a treat such as this. Dunboyne Castle offers two types; the traditional experience or a prosecco filled event. The hardest part is choosing which one.

Show your appreciation and love for your mom, dad, sister, brother, cousin or friend this Christmas and give them a gift they will treasure. Dunboyne Hotel is everything the perfect Christmas gift should be and more.

Because if you can’t treat them at Christmas, when can you?
