She looks so happy.

Cervical cancer campaigner Vicky Phelan has shared an update with her followers after she went on a weekend away with her friends to catch up in her favourite hotel.

Vicky and her friends headed to the five-star Cashel Palace Hotel for their getaway, with Vicky saying she had a wonderful stay before heading back to Kilkenny.

Taking to Instagram, the mum of two said: “Just back from a wonderful night away at my favourite hotel…the @cashelpalace.

“This was my second time staying here. The hotel and its facilities are simply amazing. I would highly recommend the Spa and the pool and thermal suite…For me, it is the staff and the attention to detail that you get there that does it for me. I will be back.

“I got to try out my new Paul Green trainers from @nozomiennis Thank you to Mary and the staff there for sending the trainers to me. Saved me a trip to Ennis and great customer service.

“More memories made with three wonderful friends whom I would be lost without. THANK YOU John, Stephen and Cian for keeping me real and for making me laugh.”

This trip comes after Vicky headed to Spain with her ex-partner Jim and her two children after she received the go-ahead from her doctor.

Updating her followers, she said: “Just back home since yesterday evening from a much-needed, wonderful week away in Spain with Jim and the kids. I got the go-ahead a couple of weeks ago from my medical team that my disease was stable enough for me to go away on holiday and I jumped at the opportunity.”

“I feel refreshed after a week away, some heat in my bones and a change of scenery.”

Vicky and her loved ones are also hoping to go to travel towards the end of the summer if her “body cooperates”.
