Into a cheap spa experience at a great spa? Sure ladies, who isn't, eh? Head to Wexford's Oceo Spa, located at Seafield, above, just outside Gorey. Aphrodite and I were there about 18 months ago, shortly after it opened, and despite a Fawlty Towers-esque hotel experience (the guy doing check-in was also doing the portering; room service; bartending and God knows what else, we were in stitches), we couldn't fault the spa. Gorgeous design, tons of space and yummy products make it worth a visit.
From Monday-Thursday it's €99 for the 'Recovery package', which includes a Mini Facial (using Payot products), a Stressbuster Massage and a mani or pedi. You'll also get two hours in the thermal suite where you can check out the various saunas and steam rooms, water massage jets, hydrotherapy pools and the heated outdoor infinity pool - this is really nice.
Spa-ing not your thing? If you're in Dublin, pay a visit to Trinity Street's Sankeiv hair salon (01 671 3928) so, where they're offering the following deals until July:
- Full Head of Meche Highlights + Blowdry + Treatment: Long €150/Short €130
- Half head of Meche Highlights + Blowdry + Treatment: Long €115 / Short €90
+ add on €30 to all prices to include a haircut
