If you like unusual nature-oriented activities, then we recommend the Wild Atlantic Seaweed Baths. This is an activity consisting of booking a seaweed bath directly in the open air facing the sea. The concept? You book a bath, and we bring you an old cask that was once used to mature Irish whiskey. We install you comfortably, we add sea water heated by a very efficient system, the seaweed, and it’s off for an hour of pure relaxation admiring the ocean!
It’s not the most common activity in Ireland, but this mobile bathing system is becoming a real craze on the island! Local residents and travellers are even beginning to rush to this new kind of offer!
These baths are only available along the Wild Atlantic Way, a coastal road that runs along the Irish coastline for thousands of miles. To take advantage of it, you’ll have to go to the official website of the activity, check that they can “deliver a bath” in your area (the areas are moving, and a bath is never held in the same place every day), pay, and go there on D-Day.
Don’t hesitate to consult the social networks of the “Wild Atlantic Seaweed Baths”: this is where you will learn every Wednesday evening, where the future baths of the week will be held. Venues may vary according to weather conditions.
The experience is then sensational and unprecedented: the warmth of the sea water will provide you with total relaxation, and the benefit of the seaweed will provide relaxation and soothing. All this in an enchanting setting, 100% natural, where you can enjoy the charm of the Atlantic Ocean, the sky and its changing colours.
A great activity to recharge your batteries and become one with the Irish wilderness!
Note the possibility of sharing a bath alone or with others. Whiskey barrels have been arranged to be comfortable and offer you the best possible experience. The water is heated enough to keep you warm.
The activity is open to adults and children. Count one hour for the bath, for about 35€ per bath per person (50€ for 2 people in a bath).
To be done preferably in spring and summer for more fun!
