A group of enthusiastic open water swimmers who are not afraid of cold water and really love the hot cup of tea after a swimming around idyllic Sandycove Island (and other locations near Cork).
A far more official and (better?) organised swim club is to be found at sandycoveswimmers.com. They have a fantastic website with really important and useful information and are a wonderful friendly bunch. We're grateful for the tide time information that they post every year.
This meetup group's sole function is help swimmers arrange swims with each other and avoid swimming alone, all swimmers swim at their own risk.
Finally, please respect the residents in Sandycove especially when it comes to parking. There was a incident a couple of years ago when an ambulance couldn't get through due to careless parking. Just keep this in mind when you park your car.
