The ultimate in feelgood magic at the Killarney Park Spa

Published

WANT to look and feel your best before a special occasion or simply feel like a little pampering? Then a visit to The Spa at the Killarney Park Hotel is a must.

The five-star hotel spa is always a wonderful haven and never more so than now, following a stylish refurb. To celebrate the spa’s new look, spa manager Jessica Horgan and her team are offering some really exciting summer packages. Choose from Glow, €69, and Shine, €99, or the Spa Special, €99.

The Glow package is a 40-minute treatment of choice, featuring Lime & Ginger or Massage or Booster facial followed by light lunch in the hotel’s Garden Bar.

The Shine package features a Tri Enzyme facial and back massage and also includes light lunch.

Thirdly, check out the Spa Special, which features an Elemis Biotec Firm and Lift Facial. In addition the first 30 readers to book one of these offers will receive an Elemis travel set, which feature generous-sized luxury Elemis goodies as well as a stylish purse.

The Elemis Biotec facials are ones to look out for if you have a special occasion on the horizon. Ultra-relaxing, they really live up to their billing as “results-driven” treatments.

They combine technology and the comforting magic of traditional hands-on massage and are regarded as the “next generation” of facials. Following this treatment, I drifted home from The Spa feeling super-relaxed and could definitely feel and see difference days later.

It is for this reason that many opt for this treatment prior to a big event such as a wedding, says Jessica. “The Triple-Tec Anti-Wrinkle Facial is ideal if you have a wedding coming up and is often chosen by brides and mothers-of-the-bride,” she said.

Elemis Biotec offers five standalone technologies in one machine; Ultrasonic Peel, LED Light Therapy, Galvanic Current, Microcurrent and Oxygen Infusion.

Powerful plant actives work with the body’s natural bioelectrical field and enhance the skin’s ability to rejuvenate. There are also facials tailored to sensitive and blemish-prone skin as well as a specific lifting facial. Contact The Spa at the Killarney Park on 064-6670089.

There’ll be a very special launch tomorrow afternoon (Sunday) as one club dedicate a new boat to a loyal supporter.

Muckross Rowing Club are inviting all members, past and present, friends and supporters to the boathouse for the boat launch at 2.30pm.

“We are delighted to honour and name our new Janousek Coxed Quad, sponsored by the Cahernane House Hotel, after Kathleen Murphy, a dedicated supporter of our club,” Shona O’Sullivan from the club, who is also Kathleen’s granddaughter, said.

“Kathleen is always supportive of our club fundraisers and has been selling the Muckross Lotto tickets since day one. Every year Kathleen’s enthusiasm and love for the club is especially shown from the shore at Killarney Regatta, as she is all decked out in the yellow of Muckross.”

She added that Kathleen’s family are also very active members of the club and she enjoys listening to their stories from the boathouse and regattas.

“We hope to see you all there to honour and thank Kathleen, a life-long supporter of our club.”

Kilcummin farmer Tom O’Sullivan – one of the main organisers of last month’s Sheep Dog Trials in Fossa – has become the first Kerry man to win the biggest award in the sport.

Tom is the chairman of the Killarney sub-committee and was a member of the 15-strong Irish team that participated in the international sheepdog competition in Aberystwyth in Wales last weekend.

A total of 60 competitors, 15 each from Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales, contested the biggest event in sheepdog trials on Friday to Sunday last.

After getting through the qualifiers on Friday and Saturday, Tom and his dog Northhill Tess, fended off the challenges of the other top-15 qualifiers to win the International Supreme Champion award.

Not alone is he the first Kerry man to win the competition, which has been running since 1947, he is just the fifth Irishman to do so and the first from Munster.

“The qualifying course was similar to Killarney,” he told the Killarney Advertiser.

However, Sunday’s final was much more difficult. His dog had to round up a flock of sheep at the left hand side of the course. Then Northhill Tess, under the guidance of Tom, had to round up a smaller flock and bring them to the same holding pen. When finished, five of the sheep were wearing red collars and Tom had to instruct his dog to separate them and bring them to a separate holding area.

“It is the biggest trophy in sheep dog trailing,” he added. “Everyone who trains a dog does so for this day. It is mind blowing. My family are very proud, they know the time and the work involved preparing for this.”

The standard at the Killarney event last month was evident in Wales last weekend. The Killarney winner, Peter Morgan and his dog Moss, ran Tom to a very close second.

His son Peter Og won the Young Handlers award and Team Ireland were declared the overall winners based on aggregate scores in the final 15.

Tom arrived home to Kilcummin on Monday night to a traditional homecoming bonfire.
