“seaweed monster”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

I surprised my boyfriend with a trip to the seaweed baths after climbing slieve Donard. It was amazing!!! we were shown to a room with two baths and a steam/shower room by the lovely Dermot. You steam for 10 minutes then get into a seaweed bath for approx 40 minutes (in which you control the temperature). The water feels gloopy to start off with but after 10 minutes of getting used to it, it is the most relaxing experience I have ever had.
I was extremely relaxed the rest of the evening!! It was so good I bought vouchers as Christmas presents and am planning my next visit for Christmas time.

“and relax........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A great experience visiting this place. Warm welcome & none of the awkwardness of some spa venues. Straightforward quality service with professional staff in a relaxed environment. I had a back/neck/scalp massage which was tailored to my preferences. Felt wonderful I recommend this venue and will definitely return.

“For the most relaxing, soothing experience you could ask for and it's healthy as well - you can't beat Soak.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

My partner and I have been going to Soak Seaweed Baths now for about 4 years at least monthly and it is something that we consistently look forward to with great eagerness. After a tough week at work there is nothing better than relaxing in the water, which we lovingly describe as 'gloopy' due to the natural oils created by the seaweed mixed with the hot water. I also love the Victorian steam bath. We have also stayed in the very comfortable well furnished apartments and I witnessed one of the most beautiful sunrises I have ever seen anywhere in the world from the balcony.

The staff have always been very welcoming and it all adds to a perfect afternoon. And try the lemon tea. You'll love it.
