Baths plan on Valentia refused

An organic cafe owner said he will not give up on his plans for the development of seaweed baths on the edge of the Atlantic at Valentia Island, but will try again as soon as there is an upturn in the economy, writes Anne Lucey.

Paul Duff of the Lighthouse cafe on Valentia has been refused permission by Kerry County Council to roof old stone sheds and convert them to seaweed bath houses.

The baths were considered over-development and concerns were also raised by An Taisce.

Mr Duff will not appeal the decision but has decided to “wait for the upturn”.
