Firstly, let me say I have never written/posted a review like this before- but felt so strongly about my experience that I just had to write about my visit to the Monart! Myself and four friends stayed at the Monart over Easter weekend 2012. From the moment we arrived our experience was simply incredible. On our arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who took our cars and parked them before bringing all our luggage to our rooms. This was while we checked in and enjoyed our complimentary smoothie! They greeted us by name (even checking with us if they had the pronunciation of a friends names who would be arriving later correct- it seemed genuinely important to them!) The staff here are remarkable- despite being busy at times (during our check out for example) they were- without exception friendly, welcoming and always willing to help. They tell you here that nothing is too much trouble and they actually mean it! When one of us mentioned that we had forgotten a book from our car- a member of staff offered to get it immediately and it was on her bed within ten minutes. Not only are the staff fantastic- they all seem so genuine. They are a credit to the hotel and themselves. This ethos clearly comes from the top down- as we met with the hotels owner twice during our stay. He approached us once asking us how we were enjoying our stay and then again at check out to thank us for coming. Like his staff, he was friendly, courteous, professional and seemed so genuine in his concern that you had a fantastic experience. Obviously we had! The hotel itself (both the old house and new part), spa and surrounding gardens were absolutely stunning and impeccably maintained. Our rooms were extremely spacious, with high ceilings and beautiful views with balconies backing out into the forest. I had two fantastic nights sleep in the most gorgeous bed too! The food and drinks in the bar, cafe in the spa and restaurant were delicious- with a wide variety of foods on offer. You could really choose to go a super healthy route or to indulge yourself which was great! On our first afternoon we had their afternoon tea- well worth the 20 euro a head! It made for a perfect start to our relaxing break! Breakfast itself is worth a special mention- it was absolutely delicious with everything you could possibly want and more on offer. We had dinner on the Saturday night in the restaurant - choosing from a set menu. The food was incredible- as again was the service! The spa and treatment rooms were so serene you couldn't help but relax and switch off. You are encouraged to leave your phones in your room and to avoid the news. There is only one room in which newspapers (free!) are allowed to be read- this ensures that you completely switch off and whilst we were worried we would find it hard to 'do very little' you soon get into the spirit of it here! This place is built to encourage total and complete relaxation for mind and body. The hotel is so quiet and peaceful (the no children policy helps!) you just feel yourself relax! It really is magic. The spa area is just beautiful with a huge range of thermal suites- from rainforest showers. saunas, salt grottos and ice fountains! The treatments on offer are excellent and extensive (book before you arrive as they book up quickly!). I couldn't recommend the Monart more highly....a stay here is good for the soul! I am so proud that we have such a place in Ireland. I cannot thank the staff and owner enough for a wonderful unforgettable experience!
