Once a year for a few weeks, my mom, my sister and I are in the same time zone together in Cork and we try to make the most of it by taking a half day to the five star Hayfield Manor Spa, followed by a two-course lunch in Perrotts Restaurant. My dad is an absolute saint and takes the kids off our hands for the morning. This was our fourth year adhering to our annual tradition and it was absolutely divine!!! I think it might actually have been our best year to date.
We always arrive an hour or so before our treatments as you can take full advantage of the pool, sauna and outdoor jetted tub. It’s a lovely time for a good kid-free chinwag.
This year I opted for a hydrating facial for my hour-long treatment. It was absolute heaven. One of the most relaxing experiences I have had in a while and my skin is glowing tonight. Mom and D went for the half- massage, half- facial treatment and also reported a blissful hour.
After the treatments, the wonderful therapists lead us back to the pool for a treat of granola, yoghurt and berries. The manager was amazing and put little gift bags together for the three of us, as we were repeat customers.
The deal we get includes a two course lunch at one of the Hayfield Manor’s Restaurant, Perrotts.
Lunch was only gorgeous! Warmed goats cheese salad for D and I, and duck for Mom. Followed by delicious ham wrapped monk fish for D and I, and melt in your mouth beef for Mom. An absolutely divine afternoon! Until next year Hayfield Manor.
(I have absolutely zero affiliation with Hayfield Manor. It’s just always a highlight for the three of us when I come home.)
