This year we’ve seen sea and lake swimming becoming ever more popular as people ditch the bland safety of the pool and dip into the beautiful nature around them.

Unfortunately, we’ve also seen an increasing amount of swimming bans in certain parts of the country due to unsafe or unhygienic conditions; but do not fret! Whether you’re a brave all-year-rounder, or a seasonal sunny swimmer, Ireland is awash with truly beautiful beaches and lakes for you to experience.

We’ve put together an easy to use interactive map to show you our favourite breath-taking swimming spots around the country. Check it out below!

We hope we have wetted your interest in visiting one of these amazing swimming spots around the country. For advice on keeping safe in the water, check out Irish Water Safety.
