Covid-19 Protocols at The Buff Day Spa

All of our Health & Safety protocols fully comply with the latest HSE and government guidelines to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and working protocols for the safety of our clients and of our team.

Providing top of the range results orientated treatments in a safe and relaxing environment has always been at the heart of our ethos as they are the key to an individual’s wellbeing.

What Steps are we taking to ensure your safety?

Social Restriction

We will be limiting the number of people within the spa to assist social distancing procedures. We have temporarily closed the Sauna, Tranquility Room and changing facilities and we will re-open these as soon as it is safe to do so.

Checking into the spa

When booking your treatment, please note that if you answer yes to any of the following, we will reschedule your appointment for you.

1. Have you visited any of the countries outside Ireland excluding Northern Ireland?

2. Are you suffering any flu like symptoms?

3. Are you experiencing any difficulty in breathing, shortness of breath?

4. Are you experiencing any fever/temperature symptoms?

5. Did you consult a Doctor or other medical practitioner?

6. Have you been in contact with someone who is confirmed to have COVID-19/ has visited an affected region in the past 14 days?

All guests will be either be emailed our Covid-19 consultation form to be completed in advance of your spa appointment or fill one in when you arrive.

Once you arrive to check in, there will be a sanitisation station to sanitise your hands. You will be welcomed by a team member who will provide you with a face mask and do a pre-health screening.

It’s your time

To ensure your safety, all clients will be guided to their own waiting area or directly into their treatment room. We have removed all self-service stations in the spa but herbal teas and water are still available, simply ask any team member. We have removed all reading materials, so please bring your own with you, if you wish to read.

Price increase

Please note that we have applied a €5 charge to all treatments and packages to cover the cost of PPE for the team, our clients, disposable towels and the extra cleaning and sanitation practices to ensure safety for our team and clients.

What are our therapists doing to ensure your safety


All our therapists will be wearing personal protective equipment to ensure your safety.


All our team have been trained in social distancing, C-19 awareness, sanitising protocols and new spa procedures and treatments. The team has also completed their Clean Touch Certification by Dermalogica.

Lunches and Breaks

Our therapists start and finish times, which will include breaks will now be staggered to assist social distancing measures.


Our team has committed to go that little step further and will not enter or leave work in their uniforms.
