The place to come to lose yourself
Here at The Hillgrove Hotel & Spa, people come to Lir Spa is truly lose themselves. Our sanctuary of self-reflection and discovery has been specially designed to completely relax all that arrive through its doors. From the silence to the subdued lighting, each element has been exquisitely tailored to maximise your experience. The Thermal Suite is one such example of an oasis of calm in an otherwise chaotic world. For your pleasure, it includes a host of things to help you de-stress and turn off.
The Rasul ‘Ritual’ is an experience not to be missed and involves the combination of heat, steam and the choice of Detoxifying Mineral Mud or Dead Sea Salt. The product is applied by you onto your skin and the room is then infused with steam. Detoxifying Mineral Mud is excellent for drawing out toxins and absorbing waste materials from the skin, whilst the Dead Sea Salt is excellent for exfoliating the skin to leave it silky smooth. Treatments conclude with cleansing the skin.
This is a special heat treatment that uses temperatures and high levels of humidity to cleanse and revitalise your body. Liquid fragrances, fresh herbs and essences are added to water, which is then sprinkled over sauna stones, adding scent to the air and flushing out toxins through sweat from your pores. The herbal essences are inhaled through the lungs to rejuvenate the body from within, whilst the soft moist heat aids your breathing.
This involves the use of heat and pressure exerted by the water to gently massage your whole body, relieving muscular tension and stress. This invigorates the circulation and encourages blood flow while the feeling of weightlessness relieves pressure on the tired limbs.
Bubbling jets of water gently massage your feet, relieving tired muscles. The cuticles are softened and soles smoothed making it easier to remove rough skin. Your feet will feel revived and you will feel refreshed.
Combine hot and cold treatments with these unique shower experiences. Refreshing cold rain showers are subtly mixed with heat for stimulating and toning your body. The strong body jets are particularly stimulating and excellent if you suffer from poor circulation.
This is simply a decorative ice fountain that produces extremely cold ice flakes. You can use these flakes to rub over your body, which stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and immune systems. This is a great stress reliever, especially when used after the warming effects of the heat experience.
Finish your experience in our relaxation room and enjoy a cold drink in tranquil surroundings. This will help you to unwind further and you may even catch yourself having 40 winks.
