A relaxing Thai-style spa hotel in Killarney

1/4

Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life with a stay at the peaceful Brehon Hotel & Angsana Spa. You’ll find contemporary interiors in your double or superior room, with calming neutral decor featuring splashes of tartan and fresh flowers. Wind down with a soak in a hot bath, or brew yourself a coffee and admire views of the mountainous Killarney countryside from your large bedroom windows.

Treat yourself and friends to the traditional afternoon tea of dainty sandwiches, freshly baked scones and decadent sweets, accompanied by a crisp glass of prosecco. On Sundays, relax to the soothing melodies of the hotel’s resident pianist with a drink in hand. When you’re ready for dinner, head chef Chad Byrne adds his own twist to classic Irish dishes like seafood chowder, using market-fresh ingredients from local producers.

An experience at the Angsana Spa is not to be missed, especially as each therapist is trained at the Banyan Tree Spa Academy in Thailand. Unwind with a range of treatments that fuse Eastern and Western techniques. Take a dip in the tropical, stone-pillar surrounded pool, spend time in the vitality pool with its underwater jets, or clear your mind in the herbal sauna. Tired skin is revitalised with a facial from luxe Parisian beauty brand Anne Semonin, and muscles are soothed with a deep tissue massage. If you feel like adding feminine polish to your look, opt for a French manicure.
