ESPA at The Europe

Killarney’s wellness destination

Lakeview pampering in the Irish countryside doesn’t get much more luxurious than ESPA at The Europe. Whether you’re unwinding in the cocoon-like relaxation room or indulging in a luxurious treatment in a plush spa suite, the Killarney spa’s wall-to-wall windows showcase a tranquil vista of misty mountains lining the mirror-like surface of Lough Léin — a show-stopping view unique to this verdant green corner of Ireland.

The two-story, 50,000-square-foot ESPA-branded spa elevates The Europe Hotel & Resort to “wellness destination” status, especially considering how the impressive facility is matched only by its stellar reputation. Sparkling service, pristine attention to detail and world-class treatments continue to set the bar as high as the towering peak of Carrantuohill, which is on full view from the spa’s exquisite infinity pool.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The ESPA-branded spa embraces its moody climate by incorporating soothing grey tones throughout the facility. Slate grey floors and matching walls create a comforting environment, warmly lit by rows of glimmering candles.
  • Two stunning pools provide ample space for aquatic relaxation. An indoor pool lit by star-like chandeliers offers stunning vistas through floor-to-ceiling windows, while the alfresco infinity pool combines mountain breezes with showstopping landscape looks.
  • Escape from Ireland’s often temperamental weather in ESPA at The Europe’s thermal suite, which comes complete with a saltwater pool, ice fountain, lifestyle showers, sauna and steam room.
  • Heated relaxation pods overlooking MacGillycuddy's Reeks mountain range and Lough Léin are a spa highlight and the perfect place to while away a rainy afternoon.
  • When the weather is agreeable, be sure to enjoy some healthy fare on the Spa Cafe’s alfresco terrace.

The Treatments

  • Both full- and half-day rituals start off strong with a cleansing foot ritual before diving into an array of customized treatments such as the stress-relieving aroma massage, the salt and oil reviver body treatment, and the ESPA personalized results facial.
  • The Killarney spa’s signature treatments feature hot stones to promote balance and soothe aching muscles. The two-hour holistic energizer ups the ante with a full-body exfoliation, facial cleanse and scalp massage finisher.
  • An array of ESPA facials blend organic products and cutting-edge technology to deliver pristine results, whether the goal is to reduce fine lines, boost collagen production or brighten dull skin.
  • Head straight to the ESPA spa after a long flight to indulge in the Jet Lag Eliminator body treatment. As practical as it is relaxing, the service harnesses the power of essential oils to lull you to sleep or energize your day, depending on your preference, of course.
