OPEN WATER RIVER SWIMMING IN THE RIVER SHANNON
Swim in the mighty River Shannon, Ireland’s longest and largest river. The location for this swim is the pretty village of Lanesborough, Co. Longford, on the border with Co. Roscommon where the River Shannon meets the northern end of Lough Ree.
This river swim offers three distances: 5.8km | 3.1km | 800m. This swim is current assisted as you will be swimming down-river, so the distances are longer than our other Gaelforce Great Swim Trilogy events.

This is the first event of the Gaelforce Great Swim Trilogy. We’ve added two exciting swims to the ever-popular Great Fjord Swim. Swim in the River Shannon, Lough Derg and Killary Fjord to experience the best of Ireland’s iconic waterways and complete the trilogy.
