Seaweed baths have been a tradition in Ireland for hundreds of years and are Ireland’s only indigenous spa therapy. At the beginning of the 20th century, there were an estimated 300 seaweed bath houses in Ireland and nine in the small town of Strandhill alone.
The last of the original Strandhill bath houses was destroyed in September 1961 by “Debbie” – the worst hurricane to hit the country. A population shift away from the Atlantic coast and the rise in popularity of un-organic treatments brought about a decline in the tradition.
Through VOYA, the Walton family has revived the Irish seaweed baths. Their reopened baths in Strandhill are now one of only a few in the country. Located in beautiful surroundings, the baths attract about 40,000 visitors every year and have become one of Sligo’s most popular landmarks.
