We finally managed to go to the Hot Seaweed Bath in Enniscrone which is just 30 Minutes from where we live. If you have a hangover, this is the perfect thing to do. I really enjoyed it.

Plan at least one hour once you have your private room you can basically stay as long as you want.

The therapeutic power of the Seaweed Bath is attributed to the high concentration of Iodine that occurs naturally in Sea Water and in Seaweed. In its growing process Seaweed extracts this Iodine from the surrounding Sea Water and concentrates it in its fronds to such an extent that some seaweeds have up to 20,000 times the concentration of Iodine of the water in which they grow.



The Killcullen Bath House has either single or double private rooms.


You start your bath session with a 5-10 minutes in this steam box.


Then you step in the tub with seaweed. Stay at least 30 Minutes in it .. but as I say .. you are free to stay as long as you want. And you end the session with a cold seaweed water shower. See the second picture.


It’s €20 for the single private room and €15 per person for the double.

Thoughts Aside: People today are much more concerned about their living room furniture and bathroom designs than ever before. Fancy bathroom designs and a jacuzzi at home is considered a status symbol now. Initially swimming pool was all the rage. But with a jacuzzi, you don’t need bathing suits.
