Ireland hotels with pools: from family friendly hotels to spa hotels

Ireland is often not appreciated highly enough for its extraordinary array of hotels, B&Bs and spa hotels, as well as the extremely high standards of hospitality it has to offer.

From city hotels to country escapes, Ireland’s natural landscape, with its wide variations and breathtaking oscillations from mountains and valleys to lakes and coast, its wild heritage and its genteel country houses, its offering for travellers is unique and exceptional.

Ireland’s history and culture, myth and legend are an intrinsic part of the way holidaymakers experience this beautiful part of the world. Food and drink as well as music and entertainment all go hand in hand to complete the experience. It is little wonder therefore that leisure is a big part of a hotel stay in Ireland and what would leisure be without a pool or spa to enjoy?

Perhaps one of the most beautiful examples of hotel pools in Ireland is at Rathmullan House. A 2019 Editor’s Choice hotel for golfers, the nearby beach and surrounding gardens are all very much part of the jigsaw that makes this dog friendly and family friendly hotel such a joy. The pool is also a central feature. Set indoors and 15 metres long, it is ideal for splashing about with the children or swimming lengths to exercise, relax and unwind.

For those looking for a more specialised spa experience however, there is also the likes of Sheen Falls Lodge. The five star hotel in Co. Kerry enjoys a purpose built spa complete with a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room and lagoon shaped pool amongst its facilities.

Alternatively, for those looking for a hotel that’s the height of romance or maybe even the setting for a wedding, it’s hard to beat the Castle Leslie Estate. In 1000 acres of countryside, this legendary Irish castle has a wealth of attributes. Cycling, archery, horse riding and spa treatment rooms are all part of the entertainment, and while this spa is not complete with its own pool, perhaps you can be tempted to head out onto the waters of the beautiful ‘Glaslough’ or Green Lake, considered by many to be one of the best preserved lakes in Ireland, instead.
