We don’t know our swimming in Limerick very well, so we were glad to take in a visit to Glin on the way back from Kerry.
This is an attractive spot sheltered in the harbour. The swimming area is well developed with a few small slipway style paths leading you into the water. The water doesn’t look the cleanest but the tides must keep it fresh. It is clearly a well used resource with some regulars there when we passed through. It will be important to time your visit as swimming won’t be easy when the tide is low.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer and nearby there is a nice area with some picnic tables. There is also plenty of room for cars, alongside the pier and in the car park further back.
Directions: From Limerick take the N69 toward Tarbert. As you approach Glin watch for a right turn into a parking area and beyond this is the harbor. We didn’t see a signpost
