Irish Tatler – July 2011

"Using skincare range Eminence, therapists are incredibly well-informed on the product’s uses, allowing them to customise all and my treatments, and extra innovative touches that showed Delphi’s passion include the resort’s own brand of herbal teas which are offered post-treatment. Delighted judges could choose from cleansing, reviving or relaxing blends."

Star on Sunday-Amen – September 2010

There’s no better way to take in the other-worldly beauty of the fjord and its neighbouring Mweelrea mountain than by gliding along the calmed waters in a sea kayak.

Irish Independent Broadsheet-Weekend – August 2010

"The hotel itself looks as if it’s hewn from stone and wood, and its gentle contours fit well into a landscape of rugged mountains, lakes and sandy beaches.....Delphi chalks up five stars when it comes to pampering........It’s perfect for anybody who loves the challenge and adventure of the great outdoors, but it is also a great spa location."

Outsider –  August 2010

When you’ve achieved that delicious state of physical exhaustion, head to the spa to rejuvenate. All treatments include complementary access of the thermal suite and relaxation room, so make sure you give yourself time to loll in the almost pool-sized Jacuzzi with its spectacular views of the wild mountains. I can highly recommend a full body massage or a seaweed bath too.

Prudence –  August 2010

"Indulged is the best word to describe this weekend. A glorious meal welcomed us on arrival after which we passed out in what my friend described as ‘cloud pillows’."

"Fun factor: Even if adventures aren’t your thing, there’s something for everyone. Instructors are patient, friendly and very encouraging. As soon as you’ve finished, you’ll want to do it all over again."

Irish Times-Magazine –  June 2010

"Delphi Mountain Resort is a great family-friendly hotel gloriously situated in one of the country’s most magnificent spots beside Killary Harbour, Ireland’s only fjord.
It nestles like a fairytale building-curved roof and dormer windows-beneath local mountain, the Sleeping Giant." 

"No television, no mobile phone coverage and not a man-made intervention in sight. From the hotel door, the only sound is that of the stream across the road, itself interrupted only by the plop of jumping fish.
The sanctuary element is further enhanced by the hotel’s spa, full of organic treats for skin and body and specialising in seaweed baths plucked fresh from the fjord."

"To say the day was exhilaration itself would be an understatement. We were only sorry we weren’t booked in for a month."

Cara – June 2010

"Delphi Mountain Resort really is as brilliant as everyone says it is a special blend of rugged nature and a golden opportunity to experience wilderness, wonderful wilderness.

… one of the must-visit places in Europe…"

Sunday Business Post – May 2010

"… a unique retreat which combines a calm mood of wholesome luxury with the wild spirit of the great outdoors."

Confetti – February 2010

"Delphi Mountain Resort in Galway ticks all the boxes – it’s ecological, it has scenery that’s out of this world, and the staff make for an unforgettable day and stay, be it for weekend, the wedding, or the honeymoon."

"Wise choices like not putting television sets or alarm clocks in the bedroom ensure that you get a complete break from daily life. Yet, though it may feel like you’re miles away from civilisation, Delphi ensures that you will want for nothing."

"Delphi combines knockout views with luxury suites and, with no TVs as a distraction; couples can concentrate on the things that really matter."

The Irish World – October 2009
