Visited the Soak Seaweed Baths on Saturday 5th January '13 having often talked about going but just not making the time to do it. What a great experience. Everything is clearly explained as to how the 'process' works (ie steam room first then seaweed bath then shower) and how to get the best from the experience. The room with the bath is self contained with a combined steam / shower cubicle, changing area and of course the all important claw foot enamel bath. The room has a lock for privacy and a call button for assistance if required. The experience of stepping into a warm bath of fresh seaweed was at first a very strange sensation but as you lie there you begin to feel very relaxed and cleansed. The experience from start to finish is an hour and I can genuinely say it's one of the best ways to spend an hour of your life.

Went with my mum for the afternoon. Thought it sounded kind of weird. But ended up loving it. Steam, soak and massage. Skin looked amazing, I'm not joking. Love that they use heated sea water and recycle the seaweed to the farmers in the area. Only problem, I wish I hadn't waited until the end of my trip to go.

Brilliant way to end the day after scenic walk in the Mournes- great to relax muscles and ensure a bounce in my step for the next day. The staff are really friendly and accommodating. I always relax the moment I arrive with their welcoming warm fire. There is also a lovely choice of teas served in pretty ceramic pots and will top up with extra hot water if you wish. Highly recommend the Seaweed baths at Soak. Treat yourself :-)

This was awesome. Came the whole way from New Zealand and went with our cousins and had 4 of the spa rooms to ourselves. Steam baths and seaweed baths we hung out, listened to our selection of music (had the odd seaweed fight) and soaked up the natural minerals and oils from the Irish ~Sea and had a royal time. Recommend this fully to anyone - great afternoon's craic especially if it's chucking it down outside! Theresa Kinnear.
