Welcome to our
5th Annual GaddinAbtGarnish Swim

This swim around Garnish Island in Glengarriff, Co. Cork is one of the most stunning and safest
island circumnavigation swims in Ireland.

It is set in a beautiful post glacial landscape in the sheltered clear waters of the northeast corner of
Bantry Bay surrounded by the rugged mountains of the
Beara Peninsula and teaming with water wildlife.

We chose the word Gadd or Gaddin(g) to suggest a leisurely swim rather than a race, but we all know what swimmers do when they hit the water. :) Last year we had 172 swimmers in the water, but we can easily manage more. It's been describes as the nicest swim on the Irish OWS Calendar.
