Spa Day at the Brehon

Hi dolls!

So it’s been aaages since I’ve posted anything, we’ve been very busy bees moving house and getting ready for baby’s arrival! I’ll be back writing regularly again now, I promise๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Last Saturday we spent a fab day in the Angsana Spa at the Brehon in Killarney. I had been there many times before, but never to use the Spa. Ladies, you certainly will not be disappointed, as it is fab!!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ   

 We started off in the gorgeous warm Vitality pool, it was like a bath, just divine, so relaxing. There was also a Herb Sauna, Crystal Steam Room, Tropical Rain Showers and an Ice Fountain.  

 We were then taken away to the relaxation room to wait for our treatments, a gorgeous dark room with very comfy chairs and very lovely blankets. We were served tea while we waited. From here we were taken for our treatments. I had the Deep Marine Purifying Facial. It was perfect for my oily skin. It was also one of the most divine relaxing facials that I have ever had! The therapist was just fantastic!

After the treatment was over, we returned to the relaxation room where we had fruit juice or tea, and melon and orange. It was so refreshing!

Everything was really lovely, even the attention to detail in the changing rooms was spot on.  

 I will most definitely be returning, and I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Happy Relaxing!




Picture the scene: It’s a stunningly beautiful sunny day in the paradise that is the Dominican Republic. The turquoise waves are lapping off the white powdery sand. Palm trees stand tall along the beach as if a defence for the resort. There is a yogilates class just starting on the beach and I decide to give it a go. Now I am really not one for just ‘joining in’ on holidays. I like to sit by the pool or the beach sipping a coctail, reading my book or online shopping(as long as the wifi is good ๐Ÿ˜‚) but this just looked like a bit of fun and something different.
The yoga instructor and all the other students were 50+…so I thought to myself ‘I’ll be brilliant at this’ #FamousLastWords …now I wasn’t terrible, I just wasn’t great, and it turns out that I’m not in as good shape as I thought I was. That’s ok though – it’s January, most of the country are in the same boat. Long story short, even though I was all arms and legs all over the place, I actually really enjoyed it. So that was day one on my yoga journey. I attended the class most days for the rest of my holiday, and who knows what will happen now I’m home!
#yogilates might just start trending!
