Seafield Hotel & Spa Resort | Take a trip to the ''Sunny Southeast'

Wexford is often called the sunny Southeast however as we drove down on Wednesday just gone, it wasn't sunshine beating down on the car windows - it was lots and lots of rain. The visibility was terrible and I was just happy that we arrived alive to Seafield ready for relaxation - and a stiff drink.

I booked and paid for this trip myself  through Pigsback as they always have fantastic deals on, so if you aren't looking to break the bank and can travel midweek I would definitely recommend having a look as there are some gorgeous hotels with deals available online for half the price of booking direct! 

First impressions of the hotel: it has a very opulent lobby filled with blacks and gold which can make it come across quite dark but once your eyes adjust it has a very cosy feel.

We arrived at about half past 2 and we were able to check in straight away. The room wasn't the standard of what I had booked so after a quick word with reception we were moved to a different room on the same floor which had a lovely balcony/ terrace with an amazing view of the golf course which you can see below. This was when the sun decided to make an appearance before we checked out.



High points of the trip include the Village Bar & Grill where we decided to have dinner for the night.
For starters we went for the charcuterie board to share.It had salami, prosciutto, chicken liver parfait, olives, sun-dried tomato relish and bread. I missed out on the fact that there was no cheese but it was delicious all the same and filled a gap.


For mains we both decided on steak.I went for the mohawk steak, which was a literal mountain of food. It was paired with sun blushed tomatoes, chips,onion rings and we also got a side of mac and cheese to share. 




The food was amazing if a little bit pricey. (The steaks were around the €32 mark).We both got dessert- I went for the chocolate mud pie which I was a bit disappointed in to be honest as I was hoping for more of a gooey chocolate fondant and he went for the sticky toffee pudding with get this - 'roast banana ice cream' - it was delicious.

The Oceo spa is probably what Seafield is most known for. Regrettably we didn't go for any treatments (despite getting €20 off each with the deal) but the spa itself was amazing.The outdoor thermal pool was a favourite - it felt like such a getaway to be able to sit outside in a heated thermal pool in Ireland cocooned by greenery.

The next day we decided to go for a walk down to Ballymoney beach and I am so glad we did as the hotel have such a cute little beach walk laid out.


There was amazing views and it was well worth the short walk. 


All in all we had a great time. It is a little bit of a drive - coming from West Dublin it took about one hour fifteen minutes straight through driving fast - that alone would put me off staying for just one night however it is a gorgeous location and for the spa alone I would love to come back for a visit and experience a treatment there in what has been voted  'Spa of the Year' numerous times.
