The IMAGE Spa Guide: Part Two

Finding that elusive slice of time to truly zone out and reboot becomes more and more difficult, so when you do, it must be extra special. The IMAGE team share their favourite Irish spas for a little bit of heaven on Earth.

ESPA at The Europe

THE LOWDOWN

A true destination spa, this is three huge floors of treatment rooms, relaxation suites, cafe’s and service salons, plus the infinity pool here ranks amongst the most impressive you will ever encounter.

FACILITIES

There are 16 treatment rooms, two express beauty suites, as well as a private suite for two, all of which sit in possibly the most picturesque part of Ireland.

BRANDS USED

As the name suggests, the spa is dedicated to ESPA products and their bespoke, signature treatments.

USP

The beauty of the spa is mirrored by the serenity of Lough Lein, and the spa team make the most of it, with packages combining morning yoga, stretches and walks in the adjacent Killarney National Park.
