Sólás na Mara
Dungarvan, Co. Waterford
Take a pause, breathe deeply while on the pier at Helvick, and enjoy one of Ireland's oldest natural therapies, hot seawater and seaweed baths. Add on a relaxing massage treatment, or a refreshing seaweed facial to make the treat or getaway complete.

Sólás na Mara (meaning 'solace of the sea') is perfectly situated on the fishing pier at Helvick, the mouth of Dungarvan Bay, with a view to the Comeragh Mountains and the Waterford Greenway just across the sea.

Visitors have been coming here to 'take the waters' for centuries.

Now you can enjoy those waters and the benefits of seaweed in the comfort of your own private bathroom suite, an ideal way to recover from your Greenway cycle, your Comeragh mountain climb, or ramblings along the many beautiful trails in Waterford.

With a small café offering tea, coffee and locally made and baked treats, this is a very affordable way to enjoy some time out and space. Beidh fáilte mór romhaibh go Gaeltacht na nDéise. Cúpla focal a bonus!
