Welcome to the

13th Annual BISRA 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.


Our swim options range from 1k - 5k offering an entry level to Open Water Swimming as well as an excellent chance for the Intermediate & Expert swimmers to test their endurance  & speed.


Safety Briefing on the slipway ready to swim will be at 17.15

Starting on-time at 17.30 is important for the success of the swim.

    Mark your diaries because we'd love to meet you there,

    Ossi & the BISRA Organising Team
