The Great Fjord Swim

The Great Fjord Swim is an open-water swimming event which takes place in the deep green waters of Killary Fjord surrounded by the mountains of Mayo and Connemara.

There is both a 2km event to suit the experienced swimmer and a 750m event for those new to open-water swimming. In 2014 a non-wetsuit category was also introduced for the 2km event to cater for all those brave swimmers who swim year-round without a wetsuit.

Each swimmer will receive an event t-shirt and a swimming hat and all will be greeted at the finish line with delicious homemade soup to warm them up again.

The Great Fjord Swim is a unique event with swimmers being brought out into the fjord by boat and jumping off to reach the start line! This is a superb opportunity to explore one of the west coast of Ireland’s Blueway locations from a unique perspective.
