Shandon Hotel Spa & Wellness
Lonely Planet review
Harried parents will love this 1950s hotel. You can drop off the kids at the free supervised playroom, and indulge at its award-winning spa or work out in the gym. Family-friendly facilities also include kids’ and adults’ swimming pools, a tennis court, minigolf, and laundry facilities. Most of the 70 spacious rooms have a spectacular vantage of Marble Hill Beach and all have in-room fridges. Dinner is available in the hotel restaurant (three-course menu €39). Backpackers can enquire about cheaper annex rooms available on a room-only basis. Follow the signposts off the N56 along 3km of winding country lanes.
