On your next visit to Ireland, stay at 4-star urban retreat, the Osprey Hotel located in the heart of Naas town just 35 minutes from Dublin.
The hotel is located in Naas, the county town of County Kildare in Ireland. An up and coming town with an ancient history that still maintains a charming village vibe, it’s very well placed for day trips to Dublin. Naas Racecourse also attracts the visitors and is just 10 minutes away, as does Kildare Village Shopping Outlet with its designer outlet boutiques which is only 20 minutes from the hotel. You are also surrounded by the Irish countryside and there are lakes and forests nearby as well as a golf course 20 minutes away.
Style & Character
The hotel is very stylish with quirky details and huge guest rooms. It has been given a massive revamp over recent years with some wonderful attention from celebrity architect, Hugh Wallace. This has led to a swanky new restaurant opening, a vast new gym, an entire remodel of the lobby and most recently, a heavenly and very chic new spa.
Service & Facilities
Osprey Spa is the absolute star attraction at the hotel. With a footprint of over 10,000 square feet it received a €1.4 million investment and the expert touch of architect Hugh Wallace. This has resulted in an exquisite space with a curved feature wall, three floors and an amazing list of facilities. There are Light and Dark Relaxation Rooms, Seaweed Baths, a dry floatation bed, heated relaxation beds, Rasul Chamber and a Salt Grotto as well as a private couples’ suite and a very tempting range of Signature Treatments.
As well as the spa, you also have the Osprey Leisure Club where you can unwind in the 20 metre deck level pool, retreat to the sauna or steam room, or if you want to keep fit while you’re away, work out in the large, fully equipped, state-of-the-art gym.
The attentive, warm and friendly staff at the hotel really stand out and make your stay a special and memorable one.
There are 108 spacious guest Rooms and Suites to choose from. All are luxurious spaces with custom furnishings and the bathrooms benefit from a tub as well as a free-standing rain shower. The entry level rooms are not really entry level at all but gorgeous Executive Rooms with balconies. If you crave a bit more space then an upgrade to a Suite is worth considering; the Junior Suites have a living area while the Luxury One Bedroom Suites actually have a separate living room. The ultimate choice for luxury travel has to be the stunning Penthouse Suites: separate living rooms, marble baths, walk-in shower, mood lighting, and vast balconies – they’re even better in the flesh!
Food & Drink
Food and drink is a much-celebrated treat at the Osprey Hotel. For your dining pleasure, head to the elegant bistro-style restaurant Herald & Devoy; a delightful sea of blues and golds awaits with the décor and a sophisticated menu of international fusion flavours for the cuisine. After dinner, head to the Osprey Bar, the perfect spot for a chilled beverage or two; don’t miss the live music on Friday and Saturday nights and if the weather is kind, the outdoor courtyard is a great sun trap.
