Whether you have been open water swimming for years or just fancy giving it a go, Bray Lake is a great place to swim. It doesn't matter whether its your first time or whether you are a seasoned professional you will always get a friendly welcome, a great cup of coffee or tea if you prefer and get to swim with a bunch of like minded people. Bray Lake swimming is friendly and safe, yet challenging if you need it to be with a variety of distances and exposure. Be warned though, open water swimming is very addictive.
At Bray Lake Open Water Swimming Centre we pride ourselves on our friendly and approachable atmosphere and welcome open water swimmers and triathletes of all abilities. If you are new to open water swimming or are unsure of your ability we recommend that you should be able to swim a minimum of 250m unaided. We also have onsite swim professionals that run regular clinics and coaching sessions for all levels from novice to pro.
The Lake stays open and swimming continues throughout the the winter, we just reduce the opening times and the number of sessions per week. We have a friendly group of regular cold water swimmers who are always happy for new people to join them both on the water and for tea and cake after. We run regular events throughout the year and winter is no exception with a cold water night time dip and BBQ and our annual Xmas inflatable animal challenge. If you do want to take on the challenge of winter swimming check out our list of essential swim tips, and feel free to give us a call for advice.
