Open Water swimming caters for all ages and abilities of swimmer. In recent years we have seen swimmers as young as 10 take part in "Splash & Dash" events to some swimmers in their 70s or 80s competing in open water events around the country. 

Swim Ireland and Leinster Open Sea work in partnership to provide a number of open sea races each summer. This is a great opportunity for swimmers to take part in some exciting races and enjoy what the Leinster coastline has to offer. These races are open to all Swim Ireland Club members with a select number also open to those with Swim Ireland Special Membership

Open Sea races are also on offer in Connacht, Munster and Ulster.

A list of races available will be made available each year (usually in April/May).
