Wet and Wild Tuesday Evening Swim
Every week during the summer, Wet and Wild (Ireland's LGBT Sports Club) meet for post-work swims at a variety of Dublin beach and mountain lake locations. Wetsuits are optional and all abilities are catered for, from paddlers to dolphins. You will need to be able to swim in water deeper than you can stand in. The venue of for the swim will be added a day or two before the event - depending on tides, weather, etc. Following each swim there is an option to go for refreshments in a local pub. Just to reiterate - this is a FUN jump into the cold water! If you want to be in and out in 5 seconds and head to the pub, that's cool with us. If you want to spend your time swimming a kilometre, that's cool too. Whatever you want to do, there'll be someone to do it with. Swim at your own risk.
