The Best Place for a Massage in West Cork

The Best Place for a Massage in West Cork


Let’s face it, booking a massage these days can be a bit hit and miss.

As a spa consultant as well as an avid spa customer I have had my fair share of amazing massages as well as disappointing ones.

Our mission at Go to the Spa is to find the best spa treatments in Ireland and let you know the best places to visit!

It’s an exciting time at The Eccles Hotel in Glengarriff as they are currently building a new spa. The Eccles Hotel is the oldest hotel in Ireland and when you walk into the reception you can feel the vibes of 250 years history, style and hospitality. There’s nothing better than the Irish hospitality in my eyes and especially in country hotels where locals live and work with a true passion to bring joy to tourists visiting their quaint little towns.

The spa in the Eccles Hotel is still under construction but it won’t be long before you will be able to enjoy Voya treatments overlooking the beautiful Bantry bay and mountain setting of West Cork.



Georgios Kontogiannes is the new spa manager at The Eccles Spa and while the spa is under construction, Georgios is offering massage treatments in a bespoke treatment room in the hotel.

As I was in West Cork for the day I decided to take Georgios up on the offer of a full body massage. Knowing that he has massage and physiotherapy qualifications as well as a wealth of experience in Greece and in Ireland, I was looking forward to my treatment.

Georgios did not disappoint. My massage was simply exquisite! There were times when it felt like there were ten hands on my back, stretching, pummelling and kneading my tense and aching muscles. It was like a beautiful dance that sent me into a tranquil trance. The only disappointing part of the treatment was the end! But it’s not all doom and gloom as I can’t wait to go back when the spa is open to have more treatments with Georgios and enjoy the thermal area also.

If you would like to book a treatment with Georgios contact the hotel direct on 027 63003 or email wellness@eccleshotel.com
