OPEN WATER RIVER SWIMMING IN THE RIVER SHANNON

New for 2023! 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 Swim Trilogy events.

GAELFORCE GREAT SWIM TRILOGY

This is the first event of the new Gaelforce Great Swim Trilogy. We’ve added two exciting new 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.
