IT’S that fabulous time of year again as the family-owned Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery organises and hosts the one and only ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Weekend.’

The ladies-only weekend is organised to benefit the Irish Cancer Society and support the fight against breast cancer. Since its inception in 2008 the weekend has gone from strength to strength and has raised over €81,000 for the charity.

Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in Ireland after non-melanoma skin cancer. 

One in 11 Irish women have a chance of developing breast cancer during their lifetime.  This weekend not only raises vital funds so the Irish Cancer Society can maintain the level of service that is vitally needed, but it also raises awareness of breast cancer and other cancers in women. 

This special weekend, which is set overlooking beautiful Rosscarbery Bay on the Wild Atlantic Way, 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. 

This very popular event 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, a make-up masterclass 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 so much more. 

There is also a special Look Good Feel Great fashion event with expert stylist Joan Cashman who has over two decades of experience from throughout Europe. Joan will host an interactive and fun session, teaching everyone which colours and style of clothes will suit their shape, personality and even lifestyle.

Now in its 10th year, the weekend runs from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th October. To book or for more information contact the Celtic Ross Hotel on (023) 884 8722.
