To really immerse yourself into beautiful West Cork join us for our annual festival sea swim in Bantry Bay. Bring your swimsuit, your towel and your sense of fun for this communal dip into the sea. This year we are joined on our swim by Easkey Britton, author of Ebb & Flow. Easkey will be speaking at the festival at 10.00 this morning.

Admission: Free

Please note that the Abbey Strand is considered a safe place to swim but there is not a lifeguard in attendance at the beach. This is a communal dip in the sea and everyone partakes at their own risk. We ask everyone to be mindful of their own safety and the safety of others and not to behave in a way that may put themselves or other swimmers at risk.
