Your bio and contactInspired by a visit to the seaweed baths in Enniscrone, Co Sligo, the Soak group was conceived by husband and wife team Dermot Devine and Claire Dickinson in the year 2000.
In 2006 Soak Seaweed Baths opened its doors to the public. The rebirth of a very old concept which most of this part of Ireland had long forgotten, seaweed bathing is a centuries old tradition, with its roots in the rural farming communities. Seaweed was and still is used as a soil conditioner, farmers handling the seaweed found the hacks and calluses on their hands got better when using it and so the tradition of bathing began. Soak is the only seaweed bathhouse in the UK and also the only one on the east coast of Ireland.
