We can’t think of a better way to make the most of the good weather.
An Irish spa has taken their luxe services into the great outdoors for June, July and August, offering massages, seaweed soaks and facials set to the gentle sound of birdsong and waves lapping against the shore.
The Well by the Sea, the view wrapped ‘wet spa’, at Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore, County Waterford already has an outdoor hot-tub and outdoor baths overlooking beautiful Ardmore Bay.
But this summer you can also book a nourishing spa treatment to enjoy al fresco.
The Well at Cliff range includes Irish peat, carrageen moss, oat oil, beeswax, sea salt and Atlantic seaweed from the seas around the country, along with essential oils, wild marjoram and rosemary and other hand-crushed herbs from the gardens.
Some of the bespoke treatments available in their outdoor spa this summer include the Cliff House Scalp and Hair Ritual, which releases tension from the scalp and neck while nourishing the hair (30 minutes, €40), the Cliff House Peat for the Feet treatment, a nourishing foot treatment with peat mask and a massage, file and polish (45 minutes, €55) and The Well by the Sea Escape, which involves a warm seaweed soak for the feet while your therapist releases tension for your arms, shoulders, neck and scalp.
