When co-owner Bronwyn Connolly purchased a sauna in 2021 to treat her arthritis pain, Wild Wellness was unintentionally born.
Bronwyn didn’t exactly think it through, but she soon realised she didn’t have a permanent place for her sauna, so she was told to put it on a trailer so it could be moved around.
She hauled it to Garretstown Beach one wet Sunday in September and started renting out the sauna during the winter to beachgoers and sea swimmers.
On the beach, the sauna and its advantages were warmly received.
Local entrepreneur Olan Crowley joined the company at the beginning of the year. They have since built a flourishing health business dedicated to providing authentic Finnish sauna experiences to the Wild Atlantic Way’s coastlines.
Both Brownyn and Olan are committed to giving the communities where they work happy and fulfilling sauna experiences.
Their specially constructed wood-burning sauna may be found at Garretstown, one of Cork’s famous beaches, and their portable saunas at various sites throughout the summer.
Also owned by Olan Crowley is a smoothie bowl and coffee truck named “Berry and Bean”, which is located next to the sauna.
This is the ideal formula for a restful weekend!
