Ring, Co. Waterford
Take time out in our Wellness Centre. Featuring one of Ireland’s oldest natural therapies - Hot Seawater & Seaweed Baths - combined with massage, physiotherapy and beauty therapy for your perfect recovery package.

In Ireland, it is known that ‘taking the waters’ brings relief from aches & pains, and that seaweed has great healing powers, while full of rich goodness. Sólás na Mara is a Wellness Centre beautifully situated right on Heilbhic Fishing Pier, at the mouth of Dungarvan Bay. Here the owners have returned Hot Seawater & Seaweed Baths to the area, and combined this very relaxing treatment with Massage, Physiotheraphy and Beauty therapy to offer ‘recovery from life’ for all. Here is a facility which is ideal for those seeking recovery from illness, for sports enthusiasts and athletes, and for those who just want to unwind.

Seaweed has emerged as a superfood, super plant, rich in vitamins and minerals. But this unique combination of hot seawater to detox, while replacing with the vitamins & minerals so plentiful in seaweed, has been recognised and used in Ireland for over 100 years. Now available in the South East again, this is also a really relaxing way to spend an hour!

In particular Hot Seawater & Seaweed Baths aid in the treatment of


Joint and Muscular Conditions

Joint Replacement Recovery (Hip, Knee, etc.)

Skin Conditions

Poor Circulation

Low Thyroid Function

Sólás na Mara also offers a cosy café with homemade treats, often bathed in sunshine, but always surrounded by the gentle hum of fishermen at their work in the heart of An Rinn, the Waterford Gaeltacht.

For those looking to combine the outdoors & nature with this natural therapy, Sólás na Mara is also located adjacent to many coastal walks, adjacent to a Sean Kelly cycle route & 7km from the Waterford Greenway, and a short 25 minute drive from Hiking in the Comeragh Mountains, or through Colligan Woods. An ideal down-time after exploring the historic towns and villages of Lismore, Ardmore and wandering through the Waterford Gaeltacht, or before heading out for some ceol & craic!
