I was given a voucher for Monart and as I can honestly say I am not a Spa person, i was unsure of how to use the voucher but I went to have an evening meal in the Garden Lounge... WOW.... It was fantastic. the food, service and ambiance.... The cost of this expericence was well on par with other resturants around Wexford.... Well worth looking at and eating in..... If your local try it.....

I have never before written a TripAdvisor review, but in this case I felt it was warranted!
I booked the Sunday night package- overnight B&B with dinner included. Worth every penny and more
The staff: a variety of ages which was great to see (lovely older lady served us at breakfast this morning, a young gentleman retrieved us the Sunday papers close to midnight on Sunday, a female foreign receptionist who helped me this morning with a favour for a friend, and more too numerous to mention.....the common factor was that all staff clearly took great pride in their work& their surroundings. Their level/ standard of service was absolutely excellent.)
Loved being able to wander around in - uber luxurious- robes all day, complete relaxation.
Every inch of the accomodation was spotless.
Had the "dry flotation" spa treatment which was heaven (& helped by yet another lovely staff member who explained the procedure beforehand)
Food spectacular.
All in all, a very impressive visit. I'm only trying to think of an excuse to visit again! Meantime, I will be recommending this hotel to anyone& everyone I meet.

I recently stayed in Monart for a 2 night weekend break. Upon arrival at the hotel our luggage was taken to reception and car keys taken for valet parking - nice touch. We arrived at prime time for check-ins on Friday afternoon so we had a little wait to be seen to but staff made us feel we were not forgotten. On check in the receptionist went through our itinerary for the weekend and that's where the problems started. The treatments and times per the hotel booking system were not those that I booked 9 weeks earlier (as hotel advises early booking to avoid disappointment!!) We were left sitting by ourselves at the reception desk for a while wondering what was happening. Eventually a member of the team showed us to our room whilst the problem was investigated.
We had afternoon tea booked for 4pm but at this stage we had not heard any update on our treatments. A revised schedule was left in our room so on return from a fabulous afternoon tea i reviewed this. Unfortunately the treatment times I originally booked could not be honoured so we were given a revised time, what could be do at this stage only accept. However on review of the itinerary i noticed the dining times I booked, again 9 weeks earlier, were not correct. I was quite annoyed at this stage. This required a call to reception and a further wait whilst our bookings were made. Things only got better from here on in.

At dinner in the Garden Lounge that evening the manager, Mark, personally introduced himself and apologised for the mix up with our bookings. I appreciated this courtesy. Dinner was fantastic and cocktails in the bar were amazing.
Breakfast in our robes and slippers the next morning was so relaxing and a read of the morning papers in the old house set us up for a day of chilling out.
Our day in the spa was fantastic although there was technical difficulties with the indoor sauna in the Thermal suite. Although the spa was busy I never felt overcrowded or uncomfortable. Lunch in the spa cafe was also good. The treatments were fantastic and the spa staff were very friendly and professional. Dinner in the main restaurant was fantastic, top quality food and service.
Overall we had a fantastic stay in Monart and would definitely return. The staff are definitely the best asset of this hotel. Some minor issues re bookings and perhaps I would advise guests to reconfirm their spa treatments / dining options before arrival to avoid any disappointment. Wonderful hotel.

Myself and my partner stayed at the Monart in March 2013. The hotel was not easy to find, Extra signage is required and map included with booking would be nice..The experience at the hotel itself was really excellent. The reception staff and porters were really good and the room ticked all the boxes..comfortable, spotless, and great bed and shower. Underfloor heating an added bonus. We did not use the spa but it is highly regarded. The meal in the restaurant was top class and breakfast lovely...top marks all round....just get more signs out on the by roads...

Room Tip: dont rely on sat nav to get you there...get a location map and trust what signs there are...

Stayed here on a Sunday night a few weeks ago and cannot say enough good things about the hotel. From the moment you arrive at the gates and buzz the intercom you know you are going to experience something different. We spent the afternoon in the thermal suite which is so relaxing. There was lots of people there but there are enough facilities that it didn't seem packed. Ate dinner in the restaurant which was amazing, the service was great also, our waitress was very friendly and really knew the menu and so could advise us. Breakfast was also amazing, so much to choose from and you are encouraged to go down in your bathrobes. This is actually encouraged throughout the hotel, the only place they aren't allowed is the restaurant for dinner. The old house also has a number of different rooms for afternoon tea or just to sit and read the paper. The hotel also offers the facility that you can use the spa and thermal suite after checkout until 2pm which was great, as it prolonged then experience! Genuinely cannot wait to go back!

Spent a great day and night at Monart, the service was impeccable. You really switch off from the minute you arrive. There use of mobile phones is not encouraged (which was really strange to start, but in reality is was very liberating!) The food in the restaurant was amazing. There are beautiful walks around the property & the treatments available are out of this world! I would highly recomend the Thermal Suite.

Room Tip: Visit the Thermal Suite & Be sure to check out the mid-week specials; there is some great value...

Just spent our 5th. wedding aniversery at Monart. The place is great for a chill-out. ALL staff were pleasant and helpfull. The food in the Restuarant was first class. I had scallops and sole. Breakfast terrific, scrambled eggs to die for. Great treatments in the spa. Rose petals on the turned down bed.The room was vast and I loved the underfloor heating in the bathroom. Could I have Tea/Coffee in the room please next time. I will be back as the man said.

Room Tip: Last room on the right upper floor.
