Spring is a time of renewal and rejuvenation, and what better way to enter the new season than with a relaxing spa treatment? As we welcome the warmer months here in County Mayo, here are some of the best spa treatments that will ensure you step into spring with added buoyancy.

Ashford Castle Ritual

The Ashford Castle Ritual experience is a combination of five specialised treatments that we offer here at The Spa at Ashford Castle. It is a blissful, head-to-toe ritual that begins with an Elemis muscle-melting back massage where warm body oil will complement expert massage techniques to relinquish your muscles of any stress or tension. A nourishing dual-action Frangipani Hair Mask (Elemis) is applied simultaneously to ensure complete relaxation.

A Superfood Pro-Radiance Facial follows the massage to add an immediate glow to your skin. Afterwards, Hydra Gel eye compresses will brighten the eye area whilst a therapeutic scalp massage will release upper body tension. The ritual closes with specialised attention paid to the pressure points on the feet.

ELEMIS Life Elixirs Mindful Massage

Begin your spring in a state of tranquillity with a personalised massage experience. Whether you’re seeking to carry a sense of calm, clarity, stability, or serenity into your spring, the ELEMIS Life Elixirs Mindful Massage affords a treatment that caters to your unique needs and requirements. The LIFE ELIXIR blends are carefully crafted to leave your bind and mind completely rejuvenated, offering a harmonious escape from the stresses of everyday life.


A supreme sensory delight, this treatment begins with an invigorating salt scrub exfoliation to the lower leg and foot to reveal silky smooth skin ready for the reflexology ritual. This ancient healing method focuses on pressure points in the feet to restore the flow of energy throughout the body, promoting deep relaxation, improved circulation, and toxin release. The treatment methods combined will enhance healing and balance from within, allowing you to enter the warmer months with an added flair of calm and harmony. The experience is completed with a hand and scalp massage.

ELEMIS Super Food Pro-Radiance

Relinquish the difficulties of winter skin this spring with this superfood facial – a specially crafted nutritional boost for stressed and dull skin. Rich in superfoods, essential minerals, and trace elements such as Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc, and vitamins A and E, this facial employs a mineral army to rejuvenate tired and exhausted skin. An amino-active mask helps restore moisture lost to the colder months whilst deeply nourishing, detoxing, and packing the skin with powerful, energising nutrients. With such attention and care, your skin will be left smoother, plumper and luminously radiant, ready for the months ahead.

BIOTEC Radiance Renew

Another powerful antidote for dull and tired skin is the BIOTEC Radiance Renew Facial. This cellular-boosting treatment targets sluggish complexions through an ultrasonic peel that pumps vibrational energy into the skin to exfoliate and stimulate the removal of impurities and dead skin cells. Simultaneously, the Galvanic rejuvenating current harnesses the power of Elderberry and Orange flower extracts to restore moisture and vitality. Skin is left profoundly reinvigorated, instantly clearer, visibly brighter, and overall, more radiant.

For our male guests, we also offer an ELEMIS BIOTEC Super-Charge Facial specially tailored for Men. Using a powerful trio of ultrasonic peeling, steam, and galvanic current, skin will be deeply cleansed, exfoliated, and reinvigorated to reduce signs of stress and tiredness.

Whether you're looking to shake off winter's dreariness or simply treat yourself to some well-deserved pampering, these spa treatments are sure to leave you feeling renewed and refreshed for the coming season.
