Doon Shore named in ‘Top 10 must visit’ swim spots

Failte Ireland has released their list of top ten swimming spots around the country for a Christmas dip and Boyle’s Doon Shore has made the list!

According to Failte Ireland: “Doon Shore is one of Ireland’s ultimate hidden gems, and a perfect spot for winter swimming. This stunning swimming spot treasured by the locals and is unknown to many tourists. Visitors can park up and enjoy swimming in the tranquil waters”.

Head of Marketing Communications at Fáilte Ireland, Emma Woods, said,”Taking time off during the Christmas period and quieter January can be relaxing and offer respite from everyday stresses. Despite chillier weather, Ireland’s year-round beauty beckons. Cold-water swimming, walking, hiking, and cycling are popular in all seasons. After outdoor activities, enjoy a local meal or treat yourself to a cozy hotel stay—a perfect break for mind, body, and soul,” said Ms Woods.
