Heir Island Holistics


Heir Island is a small tranquil island off the coast of West Cork. Only one and a half miles long by half a mile wide it is known as the most beautiful of the islands in Roaringwater Bay. With sandy beaches, cliffs, spectacular views of the surrounding islands and the Fastnet Lighthouse it is a wonderful place to relax, rejuvenate and restore body and mind. Getaway days and weekend breaks start with a four minute ferry trip on the MV Thresher, from Cunnamore Pier, which is a mere 15 minute drive from Skibbereen, on the N71.

Heir Island Holistics exists to promote and provide a haven of peace away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We offer various holistic treatments during the summer months and weekend workshops suitable for ladies’ getaway weekends or short breaks, up market hen parties, or indeed anyone who wants to de-stress, learn a new life skill and relax in a unique yet serene environment.

Based in our original 1920’s traditional island cottage, we offer an Indian Head Massage workshop either as a standalone experience for one day (great for that girlie get together or anyone wanting to learn an invaluable skill to use on their loved ones and friends) or combined with another workshop over two days.

The choices for a second workshop are:

  • Aromatherapy for family and friends
  • Natural Beauty and Makeup with Deborah of La Fenice Salon in Clonakilty
  • Stress Management (recognition, avoidance and coping)
  • Card Making with Caroline of Imagination Attic in Clonakilty
  • Seaweed Foraging and Cooking with Christine of Wild Island Seaweeds


Larger group workshops are held in the purpose built Heir Island Conference Centre boasting state of the art facilities and magnificent views to nurture the spirit. We can also help you to arrange accommodation (on a self catering basis) for small groups on Heir Island or secure discounted hotel rates in Skibbereen and Baltimore.
