The only difficult part of your stay will be deciding which spa hotel to pick.

Relax in County Wicklow
The scenic natural beauty of the Vale of Avoca may well offer the perfect backdrop to your relaxing and indulgent hotel stay. Lining the banks of the meandering River Avoca is a valley whose rolling hills provide the perfect cradle for lovely little hamlets that are fringed by impossibly lush greenery and woodland. One of the most beautiful spots in Ireland, the Vale of Avoca is both tranquil and breathtaking at the same time.
The golden sands, framed by the mountains that form the backbone of the county, create some of the finest beaches on the east coast of Ireland. Brittas Bay, in particular, is widely regarded as one of the best. The beach itself is approached through undulating sand dunes on one side and the caress of the Irish Sea on the other.
Spas and Service
If you are looking to combine your spa treatments, saunas, pampering and relaxing swims in the hotel pool with some outdoor activities and exercise then you are once more spoilt for choice. County Wicklow is home to more than 20 golf courses and you even have the option of staying at a spa hotel with a top class golf course within its grounds. In the mountains and on the Wicklow Way, one of Ireland's most popular walks, there are plenty of opportunities for rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking or simply strolling along the cliffs past the ruins of ancient monasteries and gorgeously restored Georgian mansion houses.
You can expect your spa hotel to offer treatments ranging from massages to manicures. You will also find pools, steam rooms, saunas and fully equipped gyms available. Many spa hotels are set in spacious grounds with perfectly maintained lawns and wild woodlands that provide the privacy and tranquillity that helps you feel refreshingly remote from the stresses and strains of your daily life.
The service, of course, extends beyond the spa. Fine dining is available both on-site and throughout County Wicklow and many spa hotels have round the clock room service so your needs can be met whatever time of day or night it is.
With its laid back vibe, stunning natural beauty and choice of hotels to pamper, reinvigorate and relax you County Wicklow is your chance to escape the frantic pace of modern life.
