Hot tubs, saunas and seaweed soaks on Ireland’s west coast

Sea swimming has become a big thing on Ireland’s wild Atlantic coast, as have fun and creative methods of warming up after a bracing dip

Ireland has some extraordinarily beautiful beaches: Derrynane in Kerry and Connemara’s Glassilaun easily hold their own against Caribbean counterparts. Unfortunately, the country’s weather can rarely do the same, often making a trip to the coast a damp proposition. However, rather than escaping the harshness of the climate with a visit to warmer climes, a new generation of Irish people are embracing their cold seas – but doing it from the vantage point of mobile saunas and seaweed-filled whiskey barrels parked on the shore.

This Scandinavian-inspired solution to an Irish problem is reimagining the country’s beaches, where summer water temperatures peak at around 15C. The renewed popularity of traditional year-round sea swimming at Dublin’s Forty Foot and Galway’s Blackrock Diving Tower has inspired dozens of new swimming communities across the country, including Rise & Swim in Cork and Dublin Sea Swimming.

TRAVEL DEAL UPDATE:

Cadbury is making big changes to the iconic Heroes tubs

Say hello to some new additions

cadbury heroes

This Easter we have a lot to look forward to in terms of chocolate – the Aldi ruby chocolate gem Easter egg, Game of Thrones chocolate dragon eggs, Ferrero Rocher mini eggs

And if you’d prefer something savoury, there’s even a cheese Easter egg so that you don’t have to miss out while everyone else is tucking into their chocolate.

But if you’re after a sweet treat you can get stuck into all year round, Cadbury has some exciting news. They’ll be changing up the goodies in their iconic Heroes tubs.

Don’t panic that some of your favourites will be replaced. All the current chocolate minis will stay where they are – it’s just that there’ll be some new little bars on the scene.

Cadbury is inviting Dinky Deckers and Crunchie minis to the Heroes party.

Dinky Deckers are the smaller version of the popular Double Decker, a crispy cereal and soft nougat mix covered in chocolate. The Crunchie mini is a bitesize version of the classic, honeycomb dipped in chocolate.

They’ll be joining the current line up of Dairy Milk, Twirl, Wispa, Fudge, Eclair and Creme Egg.

The boxes, tins and cartons will be upgraded to include the latest additions in April and will be available nationwide.

We’re SO ready.
