Here’s what one of our recent guests said…


“I was exhausted.. I had been on a rollercoaster for some time & I wanted many times to take a one way flight from Dublin Airport!! A friend of mine suggested Robin Hill Sanctuary in Cobh as he had been where I was a few months earlier. He couldn’t say enough about his experience and came back to Dublin a new man. Without further adieu I rang and booked a 3 day break with treatments and Yoga. Everything was just perfect. I was greeted very warmly on arrival by Dee. I loved the open fire in the Drawing room and the icing on the cake for me were the 2 resident pooches Sophie & Kitty. I wanted to bring them home with me!! The food was top class fresh and seasonal. I had Tapas on the Saturday night and they were so delicious. The peace & ambience was the perfect prescription for the rejuvenated me that came home to my husband & Kids.
I highly recommend Robin Hill for a break to recharge the batteries.”
