Win a break in No. 1 Pery Square Hotel & Spa

No 1 Pery Square Hotel & Spa Limerick IrelandNo.1 Pery Square Hotel & Spa in Limerick is a stunning property occupying a large corner site on the city’s most gracious Georgian square - overlooking a leafy park and only a minute’s stroll away from the City Art Gallery - this is the luxurious boutique hotel that visitors to Limerick will seek out.

Immaculately restored in authentic celebration of its original architectural features, it is clear from the moment you cross the threshold that no expense has been spared to make this the most elegant and comfortable small hotel – and - far from the all-purpose plastic welcome that so often meets the traveller – well-trained staff show genuine interest in ensuring that visitors are introduced to the attractions of this fine city and enjoy their stay.

Public rooms include a fine first-floor Drawing Room with an open turf fire overlooking the People’s Park in Pery Square (Afternoon Tea is served here, 3-6pm daily) and on the ground floor an intimate and very comfortably furnished bar, the Park Room Lounge, also has an open fire, encouraging relaxed conversation.

Yet, whilst all is comfort and elegance, this is not an old-fashioned place – all public areas have complimentary WiFi, and landline internet access is among the many facilities in bedrooms where, although coffee and tea making facilities are absent, you will find a safe, iron, hairdryer and the welcome courtesy of large umbrella.

Bathrooms are large and gleaming, with full size baths, giant monsoon shower heads, generous towels and L’Occitane toiletries; a bath butler menu is offered in all bedrooms, and organic seaweed baths are also available in most rooms.

The three types of room offered across twenty bedrooms include four spacious and light-filled period rooms named after previous residents of the house and overlooking the park, terrace or garden; 15 Club rooms named after Irish poets and with a more modern classic tone; and a gorgeous Penthouse Suite with its own bar and dining area – and views across the city to the hills of Clare.

But if pampering is on your mind, the place to be is the vaulted basement, where the holistic Spa @ No. 1 offerings include a thermal spa (try the coal bunker sauna), sound wave therapy, tailor made programmes and a Zen garden; totally natural Sodashi products are used, along with the Voya organic range produced by the Celtic Seaweed Baths in Sligo - it all adds up to what is accurately described as a unique “Irish Spa” experience.

With a dedicated car park just a little distance away, this makes a fine place to stay – in the heart of the city yet quiet and harmonious, and with top-class dining to boot.

Sash RestaurantThe 70 seater Sash Restaurant is entered via a quirky sash window-shaped door which adds a bit of fun to the mix from the outset. Head chef Tim Harris's love and passion for the business mirrors the commitment of Patricia and her team - and diners can look forward to simple food cooked with finesse, based on the hotel's own seasonal produce and the best ingredients available from local suppliers (credited), including superb meats from award-winning butcher and farmer Michael O’Loughlin.

Excellent food together with a tasteful, understated atmosphere and top-rate service from knowledgeable and well-trained staff make this a premier dining venue in its own right for anyone visiting Limerick.
