The annual Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Weekend in aid of Action Breast Cancer takes place at the Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery from October 2 to 4. Now in its eight year, the weekend set in beautiful Rosscarbery Bay, offers women of all ages a perfect escape away from everything. It is a time to chill and unwind with lots of fun, relaxation and pampering, while at the same time a charity close to many people’s hearts benefits.
Helen Wycherley, owner of the Celtic Ross Hotel explained “The weekend is the perfect excuse for sisters, daughters, mums, best friends, school friends to clear their diaries and head to Rosscarbery for what we guarantee will be a fun-filled indulgent weekend!”
Louise O’Regan, beauty therapist at the Celtic Ross Hotel; Ciara Wilson, The Salon Shop and Carrie McKeown, What the Frock? Boutique will ensure every single woman will be thoroughly spoilt during the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun weekend, leaving the hustle and bustle of everyday life far behind.
On the more serious side of things, the weekend takes place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month and raises money for the free services that the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer programme offers to women with concerns about breast cancer, those who have developed breast cancer, and in particular breast cancer research.
Sinead O’Keeffe Community Fundraiser Munster with the Irish Cancer Society stated “One in 10 Irish women have a chance of developing breast cancer during their lifetime. The weekend not only raises vital funds so we can maintain the level of service that is vitally needed, but it also raises awareness of breast cancer and other cancers in women.”
The weekend is jam-packed full of activities; women can do as much or as little as they like, from aqua aerobics to relaxing massages, cooking demos to wine tasting, beauty therapies to long walks on the nearby strands. Other plans for the weekend include Pilates, Yoga, Zumba dancing, and Bingo, pink afternoon tea, treasure hunts, kayaking, crazy golf and so much more!
There is also a Glamorous Banquet on the Saturday night with a Champagne Reception and a Best Dressed ‘Pink’ Ladies competition. Route 66 will provide the after dinner entertainment and aim to keep the girls dancing until the early hours. Executive Head Chef Graeme Campbell and Head Chef Alex Petit will showcase the finest of West Cork produce during the five-course sumptuous banquet.
Before departing for home on the final day, there will be time for a brisk walk on The Warren Beach and over the cliff tops to Ownahincha Strand, which is guaranteed to banish any cobwebs. To set everyone up for the journey home each wonderful woman will receive a fabulous goodie bag as a Thank You for supporting the weekend!
