In the world of destination spas, there are a plethora from which to choose; undoubtedly, Monart Spa, located in Wexford, Ireland and nestled in over 100 acres of lush countryside, is among the most picturesque. With Mount Leinster providing a stunning backdrop, acres of woodland and sandy beaches nearby, and horses roaming the surrounding fields, the theme of nature is central to the ethos at Monart.
The historic Monart House forms an impressive entrance to Ireland’s leading spa. Completed in 1740, Monart House is a decidedly handsome Georgian construction, with its façade built of sandstone with limestone quoins and dressings quarried from Mount Leinster. It offers spectacular views of Vinegar Hill, where the Battle of Vinegar Hill took place during the Irish Rebellion of 1798. The Griffin Group, owners of Monart Spa, realized Monart House would create the perfect destination for a world class spa due to its rich heritage. An adults only environment, the spa offers luxury accommodations, delectable cuisine and an exceptional golf course, all to suit the needs of even the most discerning guests. Monart Spa fosters an environment where deep relaxation and vital rejuvenation are not only possible, but mandatory. The Monart Spa experience includes a variety of treatments utilizing the finest products to ensure remarkable results. For example, hand-harvested, certified organic seaweed is used in baths and treatments to ensure clients are exposed to nature in its purest form. You will find such ingredients in Monart Spa’s Day Spa programs, as well as their programs for longer term guests. Offered to all guests, the Thermal Suite is at the heart of the Monart experience, featuring: An indoor sauna, samarium, caldarium, kneippe cure pool, heated benches and foot baths, aromatic steam room, salt grotto, hydrotherapy pool and laconium loungers.
