Reviews of Aghadoe Heights Hotel & Spa
"We went to The Spa in the Aghadoe Heights with a group of girlfriends to celebrate a 30th Birthday. We actually stayed over as we decided to make a night of it. We checked into the hotel at 11.00am and went straight to the Spa. The therapists were amazing and the treatments were just out of this world. The Aveda products were unbelievable and the smell from the creams etc was amazing and you got to choose your own oils to customise your treatment. The Aghadoe Spa staff were the best I have ever dealt with and nothing was a problem. The staff even surprised us with a glass of Champagne & fruit kebabs in the relaxation area to celebrate my friends 30th Birthday. I would highly recommend the Aghadoe Spa for the best treatments and customer service. "
"I have had many massages but never a massage like i got from therapist aine it was absolutly amazing, I felt like a totally different person after it."
Luxury at its best
"My friend and I went to the Spa in the Aghadoe Heights as a treat to ourselves. From the moment we checked into the Spa we felt that we were in another world. This has to be the most amazing Spa I have been to and to be honest I have been to a lot as I travel all over the word with work. The attention to detail was so impressive,the staff could not have been nicer and nothing was too much trouble. I really felt that the staff go beyond the call of duty. This really is pure luxury and it is a must if you want to get away from it all .....
I highly would recommned a vist to the Spa in the Aghadoe Heights."
