Father’s Day Gifts | Spa Treatments for Men

By , June 10, 2016

You might have caught our Father’s Day Gift Ideas blog post from last week and as June 19th gets closer, we’ve decided to delve even further into the world of spa treatments for men.

Fathers need to de-stress and relax just as much as mothers but it’s no secret that some men don’t like to admit when they need a bit of TLC.

That’s why a massage or a spa treatment is the perfect gift for your Dad. Everyone needs to take some time out for themselves and if it’s a thoughtful gift from someone else that lets you do that, well then that’s even better.

Here are our top 10 spa packages and spa treatments for men from spas in Ireland that we think would make ideal Father’s Day gifts.

1. “Men’s Rejuvenation” at Lough Rea Hotel & Spa in Galway – €70

The Men’s Rejuvenation spa package at Shore Island Spa has everything a man could want in a spa package. Lasting 2 hours and 25 minutes in total, your Dad can chill out in the spa’s thermal suite, experience a Yon-Ka men’s facial and forget all the stresses of every day life with a back, neck and shoulder massage.
