Cliff Walk. Breath in and feel the famous champagne air and enjoy the stunning views of the Atlantic and neighboring county Clare from the heights of Ballybunion Cliffs. Take your time and you will be sure to spot some dolphins lazing along the coast. Starts at your doorstep.
Sea Weed Baths. Collins’s Hot Seaweed Baths established in 1932 is situated on the Ladies Strand in Ballybunion and is a place where relaxation and rejuvenation are encouraged. Lie back in a bath of saltwater and serrated wrack freshly picked nearby in the wave-cut platform known as the Black Rocks and soak in the softness of the iodine and natural oils of the seaweed released into your seaweed bath. Relaxing in the seaweed is an old therapy for aches and pains and tired muscles and is a destressing experience for the body and combats the strains of the pace of modern day living. With your own private bathroom, it is recommended to soak for a half an hour and take in the sounds of the crashing waves of the Atlantic on the beach. Collins’s Hot Seaweed Baths has remained in one family for three generations. One of the four remaining authentic seaweed baths in the country. Tel. 068 27469.
