Deirdre Mullins rounds up the latest deals.

New Treatment at Monart
Monart Destination Spa has announced a brand new state of the art body treatment. Pevonia Lumafirm, Body Firm and Glow Treatment is now on offer to guests at the five-star Destination Spa. Based on the award-winning Lumafirm facial line, the Lumafirm bodyline is a blend of fast performing actives that work deep on the skin and are claimed to have an anti-ageing affect. The treatment comes with a full body massage and is an hour long. Currently Monart has an introductory offer of €82.50 (normal price €110). Visit: www.monart.ie.

Longitude and Oxegen
Longitude is a new addition to the festival circuit this year. It appears that promoter MCD has separated the Oxegen audience by splitting the acts into two festivals. Oxegen has announced a more youth-oriented line-up with David Guetta, Calvin Harris and Example, while hipsters will be content with Longitude's acts such as Phoenix, Foals, Vampire Weekend, Kraftwerk and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. No camping in a wet tent is needed for this three-day urban festival set in Marlay Park. It takes place July 19 to 21. A one-day ticket is €54.50 and a three-day ticket is €149.50. Visit: www.longitude.ie for more details. Oxegen takes place on the August Bank Holiday weekend and a three-day camping ticket is €189.50. Visit: www.oxegen.ie for more details.
