Each year the family owned 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. This exceptional annual weekend is in its 10th year and takes place from October 6 – 8, 2017. Since its inception in 2008 the weekend has gone from strength to strength and has raised over €81,000 for the charity.

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.

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.

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 is looking after our health: for us women and the men in our lives.

This WOW 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 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 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!

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 the five-course sumptuous banquet while Pat Fitz Band and DJ will provide the after dinner entertainment.

Before departing for the journey home on Sunday morning each wonderful woman will receive a fabulous goodie bag as a Thank You for supporting the weekend!

The Girls Just Wanna Have Fun 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. For further information visit www.celticrosshotel.com.
