Spa review: Galgorm Resort & Spa, Northern Ireland

Art Director Kate Hornby discovers pure relaxation in an idyllic location

THE VIBE

A luxury resort and spa, half an hour from Belfast near Ballymena set within beautiful landscape, idyllically located on the banks of the river Maine, it’s the perfect place for pure relaxation and pampering.

BEST BRIDE-TO-BE TREATMENT

The sleep deeply massage is guaranteed to leave you feeling so tranquil you’ll be ready for a nap straight away! Using essential oils of vetiver, chamomile and sandalwood it’s the perfect recipe to make you feel completely calm and relaxed.

BEST SPA FACILITY

The amazing Snow Cabin will leave you feeling like the ‘coolest’ bride to be! It’s a fascinating new experience that will leave you feeling invigorated. It looks like a magical winter landscape complete with snow and icicles, and at a chilly 10 degrees, it enhances your circulation and has a positive effect on your body.

BEST AMENITY

The new thermal village has an array of outdoor and indoor spa experiences from the cold through to hot pools. All of which are designed to purify and detoxify, leaving you feeling totally relaxed from head to toe. If you’re visiting with your H2B then you must reserve a Riverside Tub. Outdoor bathing in a wood fired eco-friendly tub next to the river, where you can enjoy champagne and nibbles for a truly unforgettable experience.

MUST DOS WHILE YOU’RE THERE

You can’t visit Galgorm without indulging in afternoon tea in the River Room conservatory. It’s such a pretty setting overlooking the River Maine and surrounding gardens, with a glass of fizz in one hand and a perfect miniature dessert in the other.

WHO GOES

A real mix of all ages and groups of guests, from mums and daughters to wedding parties. The resort has such a lovely friendly and accommodating atmosphere.

We stayed in a Superior room, a charming space with a super-comfy bed and free wifi, as well as robes and slippers so you’re all set for the spa.
