Seapoint Swim Saturday
Best way to get over the cold weather is to swim in it! Whether you are a veteran or first-timer, whether you wear a wetsuit or a bikini - you are more than welcome! Lots of different levels of swimmers so only do what you are comfortable with, that's very important as it gets colder! We will go for drink/food in a local cafe afterwards. Bring your self, your swim gear, and a few euro for a coffee. Other than that, bring plenty of layers for after the swim - it can get pretty chilly! Feel free to bring: hot drinks, extra socks, woolly hats, hot water bottles, etc. Please note that the swim is at your own risk, we are not lifeguards and lifeguard services are not available at Seapoint at this time of year.

    What we're about

    Swimming in the sea is amazing all year around. It feels great and it is keeping us healthy. Our group is getting better and better with each meetup, people are very nice and friendly. After the swim we go to a café or pub for a drink/coffee/bite to eat and a chat.

    Our members are called Seals! We are a great bunch of people who meet up on a regular basis to swim in the sea at various spots up and down Dublin. Because swimming in the sea never stops being amazing. Some seals are involved in serious swimming as well, but the emphasis here is on getting in the water, having fun, and the social side.

    • Wetsuit or no wetsuit? That's the most frequently debated topic among new Seals and the answer is... wear whatever is comfortable to you. Some of us like to stay warm and cover up every inch of their body with neoprene while others prefer to keep it to a minimum. Check out our Discussions section for tips!

    • What happens at our events? We aim to organise at least one weekly swim at the weekend all year rounds where Seals from all over the world (!) gather. We talk about how cold the water is going to be this time, go in and find that it's not that cold, get out and debate how cold we think it actually was. This is not a distance swim event or an endurance swim but a fun and friendly event. Afterwards, we go to a local café or pub in general for a long chat.

    • Swim at your own risk. When you join the group we will ask you if you accept that swimming with us is at your own risk. If you do not accept that, then this is not for you. You must be 18 years of age or over to join meetup and become a member of this group. You are required to comply with any instructions from the event organiser on the day. While we look out for each other when we are in the water, we are not a swimming club - just a bunch of like-minded individuals looking for an excuse to get into the sea all year round. If you are an expert swimmer, you might even find it frustrating that we do not stay in the sea long enough or swim far enough from the shore. The group merely coordinates the gathering of our members in various locations;

    • Get involved. Join the group, that's the first step. Once you've met us a few times, why not get in touch about suggesting and organising your own event. We love discovering new spots and you might have some great ideas.

    Join the SEALS now and start having fun!
