The White Horses Spa is named after the waves that roll into the County Clare coastline, and was designed by the internationally-renowned Clodagh Design of New York. The spa offers the latest in health and beauty treatments, and is one the few facilities to use the acclaimed Kerstin Florian skin care range. After tackling the demanding links, try the Par Excellence Golfer's Massage, specifically designed to address muscle soreness.
