Following the government’s recent announcement of a 4 week national lockdown the lake will be closed from Thursday 5th November until Wednesday 2nd December 2020.
Anyone who had a booking during this period will be contacted to discuss options so please bear with us whilst we contact everyone.
Our water sports shop will be open for postal orders so please email the centre should you wish to purchase any equipment. We also have gift vouchers available for courses, swimming, hire, memberships and shop purchases which we can post out.
Whilst some of our staff will be working during this time the hours will vary from our normal opening hours, so should you need to contact us please send an email rather than calling and we will get back to you. We will keep you updated on the lake re-opening and the activities that will be available as soon as we have more information.
Stay safe during this time and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to the lake soon.
Simon Frost and the Bray Lake Team
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 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.
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 you should be confident to swim a minimum of 250m unaided. For those who aren't we run regular Intro To Open Water Swim courses, please contact us for more information. Our onsite swim professionals also run regular clinics and coaching sessions for all levels from novice to pro.
Due to Covid-19 we have made some changes to our swim operation and all customers must make themselves aware of the current rules and guidelines before coming to the lake. Please click on the Covid-19 Guidelines for our latest update.
All swims must be pre-booked online, please do not turn up without a booking as you will not be admitted to swim. Please be aware wetsuit rental is not available at this time.
