Aphrodite Hills by C Spa at the MacDonald Kinsale Hotel, County Cork, features 10 treatments rooms, which includes a ‘Couples Suite’, where guests and their partner or a friend can enjoy a total pampering treatment or package together.
Guests are invited to partake in their signature Ogra peat treatments. This peat treatment and unique experience is quite new to Ireland and the rest of Europe, however the peat has been around for over 9000 years. The peat that is used in their treatments is actually from the bogs of Ireland; containing over 200 organic ingredients that benefit our entire body and wellness. Peat can be used for beauty treatments as it’s so rejuvenating, moisturising and anti-aging while also amazing for reducing cellulite and muscle fatigue. Peat is extremely effective for increasing lymphatic drainage which is crucial for maintaining a healthy immune system.
At Aphrodite Hills they use peat in conjunction with hot and cold stones. The heat from the stones helps the body absorb the ingredients more effectively and the cold stones are amazing for any areas of tension.
Other treatments available include reinvigorating facials that leave skin nourished and rejuvenated with natural plant collagens and essential oils of exquisite high quality. The oils they use are 17 time more powerful than any other anti-oxidant and are from Morocco. Or simply let the warm jets of the Hydrotherapy bath melt tensions away, or float into deep relaxation in their Dry Floatation chamber. The Spa Manager and her team have a vast wealth of knowledge in treatments and therapy and are always on hand to advise and assist guests in the selection of their correct treatment.
From the hotel follow the sign for Charles Fort then take the Scilly walk to Kinsale for panoramic views of Kinsale Harbour.
