Luxury Weekend Breaks with Pampering #3

It's been a long time coming, but finally, here's part trois of our, ahem, occasional series of only deadly places to go and get yourself spoiled at. We've already had a look at the Gorgeous G and Magnificant Monart, and now it's the turn of Frankly Fabulous Farnham.

Farnham Estate is a Hotel & Spa located in Co. Cavan which sounds like it's a perfect oasis of pampering. And God knows, we like our pampering here at - almost as much as our readers!

So if you felt like partaking in a little light hydrotherapy, having an aroma steam bath, getting in a bit of sauna action or trying dry flotation, then this is the place for you. But what if you just fancy a facial? No probs - Farnham Estate also has a massive range of therapies on offer including spa rituals, tons of facials, massages, mens treatments and lots more.

There's also a gym, health assessment services, the chance to buy the gorgeous goodies you've had slapped on during your treatments, fabulous food and accommodation - as is befitting Farnham's position as a Radisson SAS hotel. The setting is idyllic too - you're 3 miles from Cavan town on a 1,300 acre estate. The only gripe I have about this place is their website - it's difficult to navigate and there are no proper photographs which is a huge shame - I'm dying to get a good old look at the facilities! Lovely and all as pictures of flowers are, it's not encouraging me lay down hard cash.


The place is adults only, and included in room rates is unlimited access to the indoor/outdoor infinity pool, gymnasium and thermal suite - you'll pay more for extra treatments.

Sample prices are typically: 2 Nights Bed & Breakfast and a Table D’hote Dinner in The Botanica Restaurant for € 185.00 pps (Sun-Thurs, excl Bank Holidays) or The Four Night Healthier Lifestyle Break which includes two 25 minute face or body treatments, an 85 minute fitness assessment and personal exercise programme and a 25 minute health check is €687 pps.

If you've been, tell us how fabulous it was in a comment.
