New Year - New You!

Happy New Year from all at Ireland's Blue Book.

After a busy December, January is the perfect month to refresh and revive with a spa treatment. The Blue Book has a range of wonderful spas to choose from and here is a sample of the fabulous treatments available:

Castle Leslie: Victorian Treatment Rooms at The Lodge
The Pear Steam Massage.
Begin by relaxing in a steam box to open the pores and release toxins. Your skin will then be polished with a pear and green apple sugar scrub. After a hot shower enjoy a delectable sweet pear and green apple souffle. Why not add a little something extra to your treatment and enjoy a luxurious spa manicure with soaks, nail shape and polish. As a little gift you will keep the polish of your choice for later use.
