Small start, big heart

A beautiful facility, beside pristine Irish waters

Sólás Na Mara Seaweed Baths Helbhic, An Rinn (spelled Helvick in English), is a wellness centre centre located in Waterfords stunning coastal scenery, which utilises the health benefits of the pristine Irish sea with modern physio and therapeutic facilities to promote a truly organic and regenerative healthcare experience for athletes, sports enthusiasts, those seeking recovery from illness or those simply wishing to unwind.

Sólás Na Mara is nestled in An Rinn Harbour and overlooks the bay with the Comeragh mountains as a backdrop. Before you even arrive at Sólás, the beautiful views over the bay will set your mind at ease and put you in the spirit of relaxation. An Rinn is the perfect location for a Seaweed Bathhouse, close to the sea in a beautiful location: a small gaeltacht village, with a big heart.

For over 100 years, Dungarvan Bay and the Waterford coast has a history of visitors to the area who wished to ‘take the waters’ well recognised to have such healing benefits.  In Dungarvan itself, Stokes bathhouse was operational until the 1950’s, with Dungarvan was established as a Spa town in 1901, because the waters and seaweed were recognised as such a benefit. This bathhouse was established much more recently in 2013, and continues to flourish in the beautiful community of An Rinn now.

Run by Cian Ó Conchúir and David Towey, at this small family business you can be sure the service of an experienced team. Experience a seaweed bath, enjoy the local scenery and have a day to remember, whether you are a local, on holiday, exploring the history of Ireland’s Ancient East, recovering from a day out on the Waterford Greenway or driving the Copper Coast scenic drive.
