I don’t know about you but I could definitely do with a relaxing break away. Letting someone else take care of me, make my breakfast, lunch and dinner, bring my drinks to the table and relax in a beautiful Spa. Well guess what- its the 21st century and you should just book it!! We need to look after ourselves (women and men!!) so don’t feel guilty about treating yourself. This weeks breakaway list is all about Spa breaks- the best value ones in Ireland. Your welcome….

This weeks search was for the 9th of July for 2 nights for 2 people. Instead of looking at packages we looked at the variety of treatments on offer, facilities and the accommodation. Sometimes packages can be better value. You won’t find them on third party websites so make sure to check out the Hotels own website before you book anything. So lets start planning our spa break- here are our top 5 picks.
