For one night only SwimableLimerick brings back public baths to the city. As evening falls we will open our own bathing area on the shores of The Shannon. Plunge into the cool waters of our city’s river and experience a Samhain swim. Afterwards, SwimableLimerick’s legendary post swim feast awaits. Hot drinks and treats from The Urban Food Co-op will be served by the hearth of the Curraghgour Boat Club. The bathing area opens at 5.15pm with registration at 5pm on Friday 25th October at The Curraghgour Boat Club.

The Swim

The swim will be confined to a 50 metre area close to the slipway of The Curraghour Boat Club. Swimmers will not be allowed outside this area.

This is not a race but a social bathing experience to enjoy aevening dip in the River Shannon

The water is expected to be no more than 10C. This water temperature is very cold for swimming. We would recommend wearing a wetsuit if you are not used to swimming in cold conditions. If you are wearing togs and are not an experienced open water swimmer than we recommend you only stay in the water for a very short time as it will be very cold!

The swim finishes on the same slipway you entered on. You will be required to give your name to sign out of the bathing area
