" Sail Away" to your Heart's Content with a Romantic Weekend Break at Hayfield Manor Hotel

14 January 2009

This year Valentine's Day falls on a Saturday so why not Escape to the Shores of Cork for a luxurious and romantic Five star weekend break.  Hayfield Manor is a couple's paradise located centrally in the heart of the city just a stone's throw from the historic grounds of University College Cork. This Year Hayfield Manor's Valentine's package exceeds all expectations and focuses on spending time together as a couple while sharing new experiences. It includes a private boat trip taking in the stunning surroundings of Cork Harbour, the second largest natural harbour in the World.

The package starts with a champagne and homemade chocolates reception on arrival at the hotel to welcome you and your loved one into this charming manor house.  Once at the hotel all of your needs will be taken care of and you can revel in the warm and friendly atmosphere that Hayfield Manor is famous for. On the first evening at the hotel enjoy a rose turndown service creating a romantic atmosphere in your elegant and luxurious suite. The Next morning, following your Champagne Breakfast, taken either in the privacy of your suite or in the company of other residents, your personal chauffeur will arrive and deliver you to your desired location from which to 'set sail'.  Steady your sea legs as you embark on a magical discovery of the delights of Cork Harbour and, while Hayfield Manor cannot guarantee it, you must keep your eyes peeled for Cork's friendly maritime inhabitants as dolphins and whales make regular appearances along the scenic coastline.

While on board, you choose the pace, opt for a romantic scenic cruise or an adrenaline filled adventure, safe in the knowledge that your trusty skipper will deliver you safe and dry to one of Cork's most historic and famous lunch hotspots; Cronin's Pub in the charming coastal town of Crosshaven.  There you can both indulge in their seafood specialities and fortify yourselves for the next leg of your journey with a warming Irish coffee on departure.   From Crosshaven begin your cruise into Cork harbour as twilight begins to fall and the magical lights of the city begin to twinkle, as if just for you.  Disembark in the heart of Cork city where you can opt to take a little wander or allow your chauffeur ferry you back directly to your cosy abode at Hayfield Manor. 

Once back at the hotel why not indulge your windswept skin with an Elemis Spa Therapy treatment at The Beautique, Hayfield Manor's exclusive Health & Treatment Rooms, where you can enjoy his and hers pampering treats such as a skin specific facial or a stress relieving massage. You will also have full access to the swimming pool which has spectacular views of the secluded gardens still retaining the original stone walls or why not relax in the outdoor Jacuzzi.

Once you are considerably blissed out and refreshed, take the opportunity to dress up in time for Hayfield Manor's Valentines Dining Event. The evening takes in the stylish Orchids Gourmet Restaurant, where an indulgent five course meal will be prepared for you by Head Chef Graeme Campbell, complete with champagne, a red rose and a decadent dessert medley for two.  Throughout the evening enjoy the gentle tones of Hayfield Manor's resident ensemble and quite naturally, on completion of your meal, you can adjourn to rich surroundings of The Manor Bar for a late night digestif of your choice.

Enjoy a late check out on your final day with breakfast delivered to your door and depart with a momento of your stay, a special gift of an Elemis Blissful Body Set. As you make your way down the tree lined avenue and back to your normal lives, remember that this is one experience that together you will never forget.
