The Great Fjord Swim

Date & Location

Leenane, Co. Galway

Organiser’s Description

Swim Ireland's only fjord in the deep, clean waters of the Atlantic ocean. Choose from 3 distances: 750m and 2k - which both involve a boat trip to the start then abandon ship and swim home; or a 3.9k beach start and finish iron distance event. Killary Fjord is 16k long and in the centre over 45 metres deep, with soaring mountains to the South and North - a truly unique event and experience in an area of outstanding beauty.
