Open water swimming has exploded in Ireland in recent years. It’s a great way to build fitness while adding a dash of adventure to the mix.
Ireland’s rivers, lakes, and loughs are waiting to be explored and should be on everyone’s wild water swimming hit list. Just stop your boat and climb in. Bliss!
Banagher outdoor pool is one of Irelands most unusual pools. It’s located in the River Shannon. This pool is perfect for an early morning swim. It’s an old-fashioned concrete design which in our opinion adds to its charm. The water is clean and blue and you’ll be able to dry off with a picnic on the riverside afterwards.
