Surely nothing could be finer than getting your nails painted jazzy shades whilst supping on a freshly shaken cocktail? Seems I'm not alone in my daydreams for boozy beauty treatments, because the Maryborough Hotel & Spa in Cork have done just that.
Yup - this ESPA location (who've just bagged the accolade of being the only hotel in Europe to be awarded the EFQM award for excellence in 2009) has launched Manicure & Martini, and something tells me it's going to be a roaring success. While your digits are massaged and mani'd, you can elegantly sip on a cocktail (through a straw, I assume, as otherwise that beautiful polish would be ruint, and by God we wouldn't want that). I have to say, this is my kind of therapy. Just call me Boozy McDermott.
And of course, we've got something utterly fantastic to give away, because the hotel have offered us a wibble-tastic prize. One of you lucky ladies PLUS three of your friends will win a Manicure & Martini treatment each, PLUS dinner (to the value of €40 per person) in Zings Restaurant at the hotel. OH EM GEE or what?
This is a prize worth a cool €360, so if you want to enter, get checkin' how to after the cut.
UPDATE! And we have a winner - Leah Neville. Congrats and do please allow for 28 days for delivery of your prize.
