Have you ever dreamed of an entire village of spa rooms and luxurious treatments? Of a magical place where you’re treated like a king and stress is banished?
Well it’s real and this dream-come-true resort is right here in Ireland.
Whisper these words with the caring devotion they deserve: Galgorm Resort and Spa.
This is it. The holy grail of relaxation.
Galgorm’s Spa is set in a stunning wooded area alongside the River Maine, bringing the outdoor wilderness inside with all its calm and tranquility.
The resort combines an old manor house with more modern areas and the result is spectacular. Think classic luxury, fine dining, and pure pampering.
AH-mazing isn’t it? And we haven’t even begun on the incredible range of treatments you can spoil yourself with.
Their Thermal Village is the very first of its kind in Ireland, and it is a revelation.
In the Village, you can find a Celtic Sauna, Snow Cabin (obsessed with this!), sanarium, snail shower and waterbeds, pools and hot tub, Beltane hot tub and fire, saunas, Orangery relaxation room and a heated indoor swimming pool.
We’ve officially fallen in love – all of their treatments sound out of this world.
Just LOOK at the hot-tubs
The Celtic Sauna is so gorge
Celtic Meditation Sauna Rituals are held three times a day here. You know you want to try it…
They have a goddamn SNOW CABIN
This is a -15C room filled with snow and ice, designed to cool the body between sauna visits.
“This invigorating experience enhances blood circulation and has a positive effect on the lungs and respiratory system.”
The luxe Paris Suite is perfect for couples
This suite has a duo of Parisian baths that sit beneath a tropical aquarium.
This is legit the best place ever to enjoy side-by-side herbal soaks with champagne and strawberries <3
The indoor pool is utterly divine
A full 20-metre indoor leisure pool surrounded by a polished pebble floor to gently massage the pressure points in your feet. The dream.
The River House – wellbeing classes on the water
Raised on stilts and with views over the cascading river, this is the most peaceful place you will ever experience a fitness class in.
Unwind in the Orangery…
You can happily float away in a state of relaxation in swing chairs overlooking the gardens, with a herbal tea or glass of champagne. Bliss.
The spa uses Voya products and you can treat yourself to a hot lava shell massage to soothe your muscles, a grapefruit scrub facial or perhaps a mineral mud body treatment.
If you’re looking to unwind and generally just leave all the cares of the world behind, this is worth a look.
