Hi Dora, How about Johnstown House Hotel (Marriott) in Enfield? They have a lovely spa and do mums to be packages and have some nice treatments for himself too. Food is lovely and they also have a nice big pool. It's a straight run from the N4 and is only about 40 mins from liffey valley

Hi Dora - I can second the Ritz Carlton - midweek they have amazing offers on suites! Total luxury. My dh brought me there when we got engaged. Also, went to Marriott in Enfield last Valentines and again got a great deal for 2 nights, 1 dinner... really lovely One other to suggest is Seafield hotel in Gorey. Its about an hour to dublin - I got married there and its so beautiful and the spa is to die for! Its a lovely idea and one I might steal myself nearer my due date!

My DH got me a weekend away in Monart in wexford. It was amazing really relaxing. A bit pricy but worth every penny especially for your birthday. Lots of treartments for mam and dads to be! www.monart.ie [url=http://www.TickerFactory.com/] [img:7q46dt6s]http://tickers.TickerFactory.com/ezt/d/1;18;96/st/20090426/dt/5/k/cf9a/preg.png[/img:7q46dt6s] [/url]

Hi Dora I just got back from the Slieve Russell hotel today and it was gorgeous. We originally had a standard room booked but they rang last week to say if we wanted to stay the Sunday night too there was a special offer on but because of we were both due in work today we said no thank you, but i asked was it possible to have some extra pillows in the room becuse I'm eight months pregnant. When we arrived we were informed by reception that we had been upgraded to a Superior room. The room was gorgeous and everything in the Hotel was lovely. I'm definately going to book this hotel again after the baby arrives. We ended uo stayin the extra night because of the snow not that we needed too much persuasion. Its about 2 1/2 hrs drive from Dublin so its not too far away. Have a ball where ever you go. :wv
