Sarah Halliwell recommends the seaweed treatments around Ireland to try this summer …
We’re big believers in the wonders of seaweed – it has myriad benefits for body, skin and hair. Detoxifying, and full of minerals, most notably iodine, seaweed is Ireland’s best beauty and wellbeing resource. The most revitalising seaweed baths are outdoors: even in the rain, this is a uniquely Irish experience that will leave your skin baby-soft and your body and mind revived …
We love the idea of sitting out in a whiskey barrel hot tub seaweed bath. Wild Atlantic Seaweed Baths pop up at various places around the coast. From €35; book via
Facebook/Instagram; locations are announced the week before. www.wildatlanticseaweedbaths.com.
Rather more luxuriously, is an outdoor Voya seaweed bath at The Cliff House hotel in Ardmore, or in Strandhill, Co Sligo. From €28 for 50 minutes. www.voyaseaweedbaths.com.
Indulge at the Ice House, Co Mayo where they offer an organic seaweed leaf wrap €95, or a seaweed peat bath with waterside hot tubs also available. The Ice House, The Quay, Ballina, Co Mayo; www.theicehouse.ie.
At Connemara Seaweed Baths in Leenane, Co Galway, you’ll finish with a 30-second blast of ice-cold spring water to close pores. Brace yourself … €25. www.connemaraseaweedbaths.com.
