By , January 29, 2008

Looking to spoil your partner this Valentine’s day? Why not pamper yourself in the process by booking a romantic spa break for two.

Now has never been a better time to visit a Spa in Ireland. The recent Spa boom has resulted in a huge choice of day, health, and resort spas throughout the country.

To ensure you are really getting the romantic spa experience you’re looking for, here are some things to look out for before you make your reservation:

Couples massage
Both you and your partner massaged in the same room, at the same time, by two different therapists. Many spas have special treatment rooms big enough for both you and your partner.

Couples suites
Many romantic spas are equipped with lavish Couples Suites where you can receive your treatments together in seclusion and privacy. Some of these suites include amenities such as fireplaces, pedicure chairs, private spa pools and gardens. They can be indoor, outdoor, sometimes both.

A good example of such luxury is the Couples Suite in Galgorm Resort & Spa, Co. Antrim, which features two Parisian Baths coupled with treatment beds set beneath the sublime lighting of the tranquil aquarium.

Other Spas offering couple’s suites include The Spa at Dromoland Castle in Co. Clare, The Oceo Spa in Co. Wexford and The Lyrath Estate Hotel in Kilkenny.

In-room massage
Some hotels, like The Sheen Falls Lodge in Kerry, offer massage in the comfort and calm of your own room.

Spa unisex waiting area
Most spas in Ireland have unisex lounges, pool, saunas or waiting areas where you can meet in your robes before and after your spa treatments.

Couples Spa Packages
Today most spas have special services and packages aimed at accommodating romantic couples. Check out the romantic break at Dromoland Castle, in beautiful Co. Clare, for example. As a special Valentine Offer, you can enjoy 1 night stay with Room Service Breakfast, Candlelight Dinner with a bottle of wine selected by their House Sommelier, plus the “His & Hers Gaelic Escape” spa package all for €310.00 per person sharing.

You and your partner are sure to enjoy the Seoid Spa Journey at Dunboyne Castle Hotel, Co. Meath. For the romantic season they are offering the following special weekend break for €135 per person sharing. An overnight stay in a deluxe bedroom and a full Irish breakfast the following morning. Valentines Dinner in the Ivy Brasserie accompanied by a glass of champagne. Special touches including rose petals & chocolate turn down service make this a memorable break for you and that special person in your life.
