Riverside Spa Stradone is an award-winning spa with over 25 staff in employment. Caroline Thompson, owner, opened its doors in 2009 as a beauty and hair salon. She then turned her attention to non-surgical body treatments and anti-ageing facial treatments where Riverside clinic is now at the fore front of the latest technology in this field. In 2013, she opened her second location in the Errigal Hotel in Cootehill and in 2020 she will be opening her 3rd location in Oldcastle Co Meath. Stradone Spa went through an extensive renovation in 2014 to reveal its award-winning spa. From the 200year old cobblestone hallway on arrival, to the tastefully converted stables as a relaxation room, Riverside spa is unique in its settings. Their thermal suite boasts an outdoor hot tub up on stilts allowing you overlook the surrounding landscapes. A truly beautiful building. This year, Caroline opens her doors to another beautifully restored building where Riverside Academy of Hair & Beauty will operate from. This purpose-built academy will ensure that students will have the very best in latest beauty & hair treatments. Not only in core beauty and hair training, but from the non-surgical and anti-ageing section and advanced salon treatments.
