Fabulous ‘girls only’ weekend to aid the Irish Cancer Society
Girls only please!
Each year, the familyowned Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery organises and hosts the one and only Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Weekend to benefit the Irish Cancer Society and support the fight against breast cancer.
Now in its 10th year, this exceptional event takes place from October 6 to 8. Since its inception, the weekend has gone from strength to strength and has raised over €81,000.
Hosted in a setting overlooking beautiful Rosscarbery Bay on the Wild Atlantic Way, the weekend is a time to chill and unwind with lots of fun, relaxation, and pampering, while at the same time fundraising for a charity close to many people’s hearts.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in Ireland after nonmelanoma skin cancer.
Women aged 18 to 80 descend on Rosscarbery together with their friends to remember someone they have lost or they come with their sisters and mums to celebrate getting through cancer and surviving.
Throughout the weekend, the need for cancer awareness is highlighted as well as looking after your health.
The weekend is jam-packed full of activities and the women can do as much or as little as they like, from aqua aerobics to relaxing massages, make-up masterclasses to wine and cheese tasting, pilates to long walks on the nearby strands.
Other plans for the weekend include caricature painting, dancing, mindfulness, feed your skin, hair and beauty, nail bar, yoga, bingo, treasure hunts, stand up paddling, adventure golf, and more.
There is a special ‘Look Good Feel Great’ fashion event with expert stylist Joan Cashman who has over two decades of experience from throughout Europe.
Saturday night brings out the style with a champagne reception and a Best Dressed “Pink” Ladies competition sponsored by Keanes Jewellers. Head chef Alex Petit will showcase the finest of West Cork produce during a fivecourse sumptuous banquet
The weekend, in aid of the Irish Cancer Society, is €195 per person sharing including two nights B&B, champagne banquet on the Saturday night, a mini facial or massage and all the activities during the weekend.
