We all need a little downtime every now and then.


Our lives can get pretty hectic from time to time. Between work and social lives, it seems like there aren't enough hours in the day. When you throw kids into the mix, things go from busy to crazy pretty quickly.

It's important that mums get to enjoy a little downtime every now and then because let's face it, they deserve it.

So, with that in mind, we've rounded up our top five favourite spas for a little maternal downtime. Significant others — do take note.

Galway: The Delphi Spa, Mountain Resort, Connemara

Sitting in the heart of Connemara, the simplicity of the spa at the Dephi Mountain resort is hard to beat. You'll instantly feel at home here. Enjoy stunning views from the spa's hydro pool and relaxation area, and be sure to explore the many thermal suites.

Highlights: The hour-long seaweed bath will leave your skin feeling incredible FOR DAYS.


Kerry: Aghadoe Heights Hotel and Spa

Overlooking the world-famous Killarney Lakes, the Aveda Spa at Aghadoe Heights Hotel is the ideal spot that'll allow you to switch off from the world, soak in the blissful surroundings, swim in the Roman style indoor pool and take in incredible views of the lakes and mountains. It's simply out of this world.


Highlights: The precious stone therapy treatment will leave you feeling like a princess. A very happy princess at that.

Wicklow: Powerscourt Hotel Resort Spa

Luxury, luxury and more luxury which is exactly what a hard-working mother deserves. With its beautiful views of the nearby Sugar Loaf mountain and first-rate facilities and extensive treatments rooms, the ESPA at the Ritz-Carlton in Powerscourt is a place every mum should visit at least once.


Highlights: The low-lit black marble swimming pool is inlaid with Swarovski crystals (how fancy!) to reflect the night sky. That's right, Swarovski crystals. Decadence at its finest.

Roscommon: Kilronan Castle

Set amidst one of Ireland's most beautiful landscapes, the spa at Kilronan Castle is top class. Wrap yourself in a floor-length robe and enjoy the many gorgeous facilities. The full body hot stone massage will leave you feeling more relaxed than you've ever felt in your life.

Highlights: The gravity-free dry flotation treatment is incredible. Your body is immersed into a bed of warm water (while you stay dry) and all your aches are soothed away.

Donegal: Solis Lough Eske Castle

Spa Solís at Lough Eske Castle sits pretty on the edge of its namesake lake, near the Blue Stack Mountains. The focus at this spa is on a total wellness experience, making it the perfect place for mums to restore the body and the soul.

Highlights: The 60 minute Spa Solís massage featuring a blend of traditional Swedish techniques and essentials oil is exquisite.
