Frequently Asked Questions

How do you operate?

We are currently based @ Doolin Harbour for the summer of 2024 and have previously operated our seaweed baths on a mobile basis between locations in West Cork, Kerry, Clare and Galway Bay.

Where are your locations?

Locations to date have included Snave Pier Ballylickey Bantry Bay, Rocky Bay (near Kinsale and Carrigaline), Ceann Trá or Ventry Pier on the Dingle,  Clahane at Liscannor Bay in Co. Clare, and Céibh an Lochán  near Kinvara in South Galway Bay.

How can I book in for a bath?

Please reserve a seaweed bath via the Book Online section of our website.

What do I bring?  Please bring swimming togs, towel and drinking water.  Please do not bring glass or alcohol.

Cancellation Policy.  Please note once a booking has been paid for, if you wish to cancel, the first and preferred option is for the purchaser of the booking to send a family member or friend instead and if doing this, to please email us letting us know of the name change for the person who will be arriving for the booking instead.  If the aforementioned is not an option, please email us letting us know that you wish to cancel your slot where we will re advertise your slot, where if rebooked, we will refund you subject to a minimum admin fee of €10 or €5 per barrel cancelled.

Please note, we reserve the right to cancel and fully refund any booking under very rare circumstances that may arise.  No compensation other then a refund of the original booking will be available under such circumstances.

 Gift Vouchers

We no longer sell gift vouchers.

If you have a Wild Atlantic Seaweed Baths gift voucher you’re looking to redeem when booking in, you can use the 7 digit code at the payment stage to complete your booking.  Unfortunately if your voucher was purchased before Christmas 2019, your voucher will likely only have a 3 or 4 digit code which is not compatible with our online booking system. If you have one of our older type vouchers, please book in using a credit card and then bring your voucher on the day and will refund your bank card. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  

Can I use the bath if I’m pregnant?

Only if you’ve consulted your GP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How much does it cost?

Cost is €50.00 per barrel per hour or €70.00 if two or more adults are using the same barrel.  Children under age of 16 are free if using the bath with a parent or guardian but must be supervised at all times.

How can I book a group in for a future date?

The options are to either book in when we announce a location or to privately hire us (see below).  Additionally, if you are looking to book more then 4 baths at one time, please book the additional baths that have a starting time within half an hour of the first 4 baths you have booked and so on.   

How much for private hire?

For exclusive event and or corporate hire, we can offer our state of the art mobile seaweed bath operation to both national and international clients.  This service can be provided at a hotel of your choosing or any remote location.  Please feel free to get in touch if you would like more info.

How can I buy one of your upcycled whiskey barrel hot tubs?

We sell our whiskey barrel hot tubs for €5000 which includes tub with cover, steps, small barrel for cold water and a marine grade stainless steel wood burner or a 6Kw electrical heater.   Please get in touch with us via the contact page of our website if you’d like more info.

Franchise?

Our operation is designed to heat sufficient quantities of fresh or seawater to cater for 6 barrels operating on rotation.  All ancillary equipment and a self pour system can be provided.  National and worldwide delivery available.  Please get in touch to discuss further.

Photography  

 We love to see people getting photos of themselves but as a courtesy to other users of the seaweed baths, we kindly request patrons of our seaweed baths to respect other people’s privacy by not including other visitors in their pictures.  However, it is not fully within our control to prevent people passing by from taking pictures and so we cannot guarantee people will not be photographed.  As is our own policy on a rare time when we’d like to photograph the barrels, if people are in them, we will ask them for their consent under such circumstances which is entirely voluntary.  Thank you for your consideration and respect of other people’s privacy in advance.

And finally… thanks to everyone for all the help in getting Wild Atlantic Seaweed Baths up and running, to all the amazing communities who continue to give us such a warm welcome when we visit and to everyone who either visits the baths or tells others via word of mouth or online how amazing our baths are…  We are so grateful.
