I found the Orchid Day Spa while wandering around Killarney during a recent visit to the city. A treatment sounded like a great way to relax after 2 days of travel and jet lag. The staff was very accommodating and found two appointments for later in the day for myself and my daughter.
The spa is lovely, very relaxing and quiet. The waiting room is a nice touch with tea, water and fruit and I can't fault any of the staff for their efforts. They try very hard to make the experience relaxing and pleasant.
I get frequent massages and facials so I realize I have high expectations. I booked a reflexology treatment and scalp massage, my daughter had a Swedish massage. My daughter reported that her massage was good and she was satisfied. On the other hand, my reflexology was lacking. I had to continually remind my practitioner that she was being too soft. It felt like the standard foot rub, not reflexology at all. The scalp massage wasn't much better--ok but nothing special.
Services aren't cheap so I expected much better quality.
