Just back from my second visit to Monart, and it was every bit as good as the first visit. At Monart you really can escape from reality. Great food, great drink, great spa. The staff are so friendly - even the owner came up to introduce himself to people. This place is on a different level to other 5 star hotels I have visited. Everything is ship shape, and top notch and you can just relax and completely escape reality. They make everyone feel like a celebrity. Monart is SOOO quiet - you only realise that when you leave - no families, no screaming children or kids running about. This place in UNIQUE. I imagine most hotels in Ireland were full of families for the easter weekend. If you've no kids or you don't want to be around kids for your spa weekend - then Monart is PERFECT for you.
We ate in the garden lounge both nights. The menu is relatively small, and between both of us we ate most things on the menu over the 2 nights. The dessert menu is a little disappointing - not that much choice - it needs to be expanded. Food and drink at Monart is very expensive - the drinks especially. We spent approximately €100 per night on 2 drinks each, main courses and a shared dessert. We didnt exactly go mad!
The spa was terrific as usual. One gripe though, we spent a whole day in the spa, and half of the next day before checking out and listening to the same spa music over and over again got a little annoying! They need to expand the repertoire a little! We didn't have any treatments this time, but you don't need to to enjoy this place. The hotel must have been booked out for the long weekend, but you never got the sense the spa was crowded with people.
The grounds were lovely - as usual. If the weather is good at night take an opportunity to walk the grounds in the dark - its worth it, the outdoor lighting is beautiful.
Breakfast was great as usual. Everything cooked to order and you can have your fill of cereals, breads and fruit. Its so lovely to fall out of bed and into breakfast in your robes and slippers. Such a treat.
If you haven't been to Monart and are thinking about it - just do it. You won't regret it :)
