If you are looking to relax and switch off, then lay back and soak in a seaweed bath. Seaweed Baths are great for detoxifying the body and re-hydrating and moisturising the skin. The therapeutic effects of the iodine contained naturally in seaweed seeps into the skin and can help relax the muscles. The seaweed is hand-harvested from the unspoilt Atlantic coast of Ireland. Book this amazing Wild Atlantic Way experience at Kilcullens Seaweed Baths or Voya in Strandhill.
