Donegal Seaweed Retreat

“Never turn your back to the sea”

Why pick this tour?

Visit Donegal – a hidden gem of Ireland, and not on a standard Irish travel route. This trip is all about seaweed: we will forage, bath, taste, cook and educate ourselves about the medicinal and holistic benefits of Irish seaweed.

Walk the shores with passionate local seaweed Chef Prannie Rhatigan, author of books on cooking with seaweed. We’ll talk, harvest, taste and learn how to use sea vegetables in cooking and healthy living.

Indulge in the famous Voya Seaweed Baths and seaweed treatments overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Hike to mysterious Irish megalithic monuments dating back to 4000 BC, climb to the top of the hills of Bricklieve Mountains, explore the history of thin places, meditate and connect with the energy of the Earth.

Immerse yourself in the stunning beauty of the Sleive league Cliffs, admire the views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Sligo Mountains and Donegal Bay.

Visit Sliabh Liag Distillery, learn about whiskey making and taste their craft “gin of the sea” made with locally foraged seaweed.

{Many thanks to Absolute Ireland Travel for the excellent organization of our 9 days trip. We saw most unusual and beautiful the parts of Ireland. We visited ancient castles and learned very complex history of Ireland and its people, experienced local cuisine and relaxed in the spa. We will be happy to come next time with children.
