This fab golf resort and spa hotel is set in 400 acres of rolling countryside between the Wicklow Mountains and the Irish Sea. The Druids Glen Course is famous for hosting the Irish Open on four occasions, while Druids Heath is known as ‘nature’s gift to golf’, weaving its way around quarries, trees, lakes and pot bunkers.
Upon checking into the Presidential Suite, you’re greeted with a bottle of chilled Moet & Chandon and chocolate-dipped strawberries, which you can enjoy in front of your double-sided fire. After unwinding in the free-standing bath with L’Occitane toiletries, enjoy your evening canapés as you look out over the golf course, all before retiring to your four-poster king-size bed.
The cosy spa is softly lit and with the gentle aroma of essential oils, so it’s the best way to escape from the world for a couple of hours, and return feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. When you’ve finished your massage, why not visit the 8-metre swimming pool, Jacuzzi, plunge pool or steam room?
Sample the modern, creative cuisine and seasonal fare, like Dublin Bay prawns and Castletownbere scallops, in the 2 AA Rosette Hugo’s Restaurant. Boasting idyllic woodland views, the room is minimalist in design, with wood-panelling, a soft colour scheme and plush velvet booths.
