Wild swimming

* Freedom to drift

Wild swimming

Dramatic lakes, flowing rivers and the wild ocean come together to make the Reeks District a dream destination for those looking to take a dip outdoors.

CROMANE SWIM

Well protected and with largely calm waters, Cromane Strand is more secluded than our other beaches and perfect for a swim at high tide.

CARAGH LAKE SWIM

This glacial lake between the Upper and Lower Caragh offers several secluded spots to enter the water for a refreshing swim.

INCH BEACH SWIM

This vast stretch of almost pristine white sand means there are always less crowded spots from which to enter the water.

LOUGH CUMMEENOUGHTER SWIM

Some brave souls jump into the icy waters of Lough Cummeenoughter. Set at 707m and under the gaze of Carrauntoohil, it's the country's highest lake.

O'SULLIVAN'S CASCADE

Deep in Tomies Wood, O'Sullivan's Cascade rushes down the mountainside on its way to Lough Leane, filling pools deep enough for a swim.
