This week saw Irish stars travel to Co Kildare for the launch of the Spa at Kilkea Castle. It comes after the 12th Century castle underwent an extensive €2 million investment.

Owners Jay and Christy Cashman from Boston joined General Manager Aidan O’Sullivan in welcoming guests to the spa, which offers both day and overnight packages with a range of treatments on offer.

Located just an hour’s drive from Dublin, the spa at Kilkea Castle uses luxurious Elemis products and boasts a serene, tranquil environment.

Guests (including Kathryn Thomas, Lorraine Keane and Nuala Carey, to name but a few) sipped Taittinger Champagne and indulged in a delicious afternoon tea experience by Executive Chef David McKane.

Culinary delights included sandwiches of Duncannon House Smoked Salmon with Keta Caviar; Honey Roast Ham and Wholegrain Mustard Mayonnaise, and Dressed Crab with Lemon Dressing on Brioche.

Not only that, but a tempting selection of sweet bites was also served including Créme Brulee; White Chocolate Tart; Chocolate Macarons and Raspberry Bakewell.

See all of the social pictures from the night, as taken by Kieran Harnett, in the gallery above.
