Being located on the Sky Road gives Abbeyglen access to a protected source of Lake (or Peat) water which comes from a remote and isolated mountain behind the hotel.
The brown tint from Connemara lake water is the result of the natural filtration process from the peat surrounding the lakes.
As a result, organic lake water contains many natural minerals which have been scientifically proven to reduce signs of ageing and contains many healing properties. Lake water contains the following minerals; Zinc, Copper, Iron and Selenium. Zinc has anti inflammatory properties and reduces skin inflammations such as eczema. Copper contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. Iron has been proven to aid with skin healing and selenium ensures that the skin remains firm and protected.
Bushmills Whiskey claims that the unique and distinct flavour of its whiskey is due to the balance of minerals in the peaty water used in its distilling process. (You may get confirmation of this at our Bar...)
Apart from whiskey, Peat water is also ideal for showering, bathing, cleansing and rehydrating :)
