The Irish have a deep affinity with the water and are spoiled by some of the most beautiful outdoor swimming spots in the world. Journeying from county to county, this guide to fifty of Ireland's best wild swims will inspire readers to get off the beaten track and find amazing locations for skinny-dipping, diving, swimming and snorkelling. Take a dip under the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge off the rugged coast of Ulster; circumnavigate Devenish Island in the freshwater Lough Erne; explore the rockpool at Hook Head Lighthouse; drop from high diving boards into Galway Bay; or slip along the Wild Atlantic Way's hidden beaches and isolated coves. From secret coves to serene rivers and lakes, there is something to suit swimmers of every ability. Expert tips, spectacular photos and practical information make wild swimming safe and invigorating for everyone. The maps, grid references and clear directions make it easy to find these locations where you can join the wild swimmers and get away from the hordes on supervised beaches and in crowded pools. Take the plunge in some of the most awe-inspiring corners of Ireland's landscape.

About the Author:
Maureen McCoy, from Hillsborough, County Down, is an award-winning open-water swimmer, having swum in the sea, loughs and rock pools with her brothers since she was a small child. In 2009, just after her fortieth birthday, she fulfilled her childhood ambition to swim the English Channel. Her achievements have been widely reported and featured on BBC and UTV. Maureen enjoys outdoor swimming throughout the year and always keeps a swimsuit in her car - just in case. Paul McCambridge has been a photographer for over twenty-five years. He has exhibited his work nationally and has won many awards over the years. He lives in Banbridge, County Down, and sees swimming outdoors as therapy and a way to reinvigorate the body.
