... on the whole of the Irish Island. It had been a fairly wet day but we were lucky and it didn’t rain while we were there so we got to walk right out on the headland where I had to sit very near the edge for a photo, I’m mighty glad the wind wasn’t blowing or it could have been fatal for me, it was a long way down with zilch chance of rescue.
On another drizzly wet day we visited two castles near Enniskillen. Yes, you’re right we ...
... and smiled ear to ear as Jess said she was "buzzin' for worship tonight." I met Jess and Julie two years ago, when they came into the Emp with their friends and we immediately bonded. By the end of the trip, we got to talk so much and I was able to tell them how God has changed my life. I gave Julie my bible and Allie have hers to Jess. It was obviously God's plan that we would become so close and ...

... me. :) hahaha. For this weekend my team and I are leading the training for the two youth teams at a beautiful farm/camp/park called Nore Valley Park. If you know what Camp Shiloh is, it's basically the Irish version of it! So far it's been awesome. After the session, Kilkenny, Gorey, and the Greystones teams separated to pray for each of our towns we'll be in. Our small team ...
... player. We had an open fire, beautiful period furniture and dinnerware. We dined on homemade bread and butter, black pudding, irish stew and bread and butter pudding and custard. They bent over backwards to cater for Lea as well. The night saw us drinking Irish coffee and having a sing along afterwards in the large farm kitchen.
Today, we travelled from Killarney to Blarney. We climbed the 250feet to the top of the castle, where Sal acquired ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Monart Enniscorthy
We stayed for two nights at the end of September and like other reviewers felt about 10 years younger leaving! There is a huge emphasis on de stressing....from wandering into breakfast in your bath robe to the blissful relaxation rooms & spas.
I realise that Monart has had several good reviews both on-line and in publications. However my recent experience with them has changed my opinion completely.
We stayed in Monart for just one night but definitely wasnt enough to experience this great place! All the reviews are true. Make sure you try the afternoon tea. Restuarant was a little disappointing - service was very slow and food was a bit of a let down. Other than that 5 stars..
Best hotel / spa experience we've had
As someone who spends up to two weeks a month staying in hotels I've quite a lot to compare Monart with, Monart comes out on top for every aspect. Clean, spacious, well decorated rooms; friendly and accomodating staff; great spa treatment area; and above all a relaxing atmosphere that seems to dissolve stress intantly upon your arrival. Not to forget the stunning grounds, overlooked by the relaxation room which is the best place in the world to chill out over the Sunday papers! Quite simply I can't say enough good things about Monart congrats to everyone involved!
I stayed for two days and just one night at Monart with two girlfriends recently and I can safely say they were the most relaxing two days of my life.
I have just returned from Monart and I don't know where to start... From driving up the avenue to the last second that I spent at Monart, I have NEVER experienced the service and luxury that I received during my stay.
Like nothing in ireland
I stayed in Monart recently and felt obliged to write a review; from the moment our reservation was taken right up until check out the experience was flawless and I felt like I was almost drifting away. I got such a surprise walking through the old house and into the draw jopping reception area, then another Wow when I got to my room..it just kept getting better and better. I had dinner and used the spa and due to the high demand could not book a treatment but this didn't affect the experience at all! The relaxation rooms and gardens outside are wonderful and makes it easy to get away from it all and relax. The only negative is having to leave! I will definitely be back and staying a lot longer the next time!
I booked 2 nights at Monart mid-week to escape the hustle and bustle of citylife (and more importantly, work!) I arrived at about 2pm, met by a valet who took my bags and parked my car for me. As I walked into reception I was stunned at the beauty of the building and the surrounding woodland....floor to ceiling glass really added to the "natural" atmosphere. Shown to my room, which was beautiful...a very large bed, couch with chairs, dressing table, large bathroom with bath and walk in shower, tv with dvd player (dvd's available at reception) and a small balcony. Straight into my big fluffy towelling bathrobe (provided) and slippers (provided) and off the spa.
Wonderful - Heaven
I booked a mid-week break here for my parents and I am writnig about their experience....they said it was fantastic and by far the nicest place they had EVER stayed in our lovely country. It is expensive, there is no denying, but they said it's worth every penny. They especially loved that there are a. no weddings and b. no children. Highly recommended.
Absolutely fantastic - felt like a princess!
I didnt know what to expect of a destination spa before I came to Monart - but It definitely surpassed any expectations I may have had. What makes this place so unique, are the little extra details and effort the staff make to ensure you are happy: from parking your car on arrival, the member of staff who opens the door for you and escorts you to your room/dining room, and the genuinely helpful and friendly staff catering to your every need. The decor is breathtaking, with the unnique but undeniably charming fusion of the old country house, with modern decor. The mood of the spa is very relaxing and chilled, with dimly lit rooms, and a quiet atmosphere. The fact its an adult only destination is a definite plus.
