Over 500 types of seaweed grow around the coast of Northern Ireland, many packed with vitamins and minerals that help soothe skin problems like psoriasis and acne, and act as an anti-ageing remedy by maintaining the skin’s elasticity.
And you can now enjoy the health benefits of this sea plant in a relaxing, scenic spa. Hand harvested from the Irish Sea, the seaweed baths at Sea Haven Remedy are designed to leave your skin feeling moisturised and silky smooth, while also relaxing your muscles and soothing aches and pains. Kick back, relax with your choice of music and enjoy views of the ocean and Rathlin Island.
First built by salmon fishermen in 1755, Ballycastle’s Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge – that’s suspended almost 100 feet above the sea – has become quite the phenomenon. If it’s not too windy, you can cross the rickety walkway to Carrickarede Island for a quick look around.
A six-mile boat ride across the Sea of Moyle will take you to Rathlin Island, known for its quiet, empty roads and beautiful views. Visit the Upside-Down Lighthouse, cycle around the coastal pathways or discover one of the many shipwrecks buried at the bottom of the sea.
Set out on a three-hour tour of Ballycastle packed with mouth-watering Irish food and a lot of laughs. You’ll visit six independent restaurants for a taste of the local cuisine – from the Ulster Fry mini stack to seafood chowder and native ale. Just make sure you come hungry!
