Any blurriness observed in the product images is due to the image size restraints on the site or connection issues such as slow 3G/wifi. The actual print is extremely high resolution and crisp.
Our prints and maps are printed on very high quality, durable, archival paper. This means that they won't yellow or decay with age. Your map will look just as good in ten years time!
The Second Edition of this map, with 29 more swim spots and improved coverage of Kerry, Cork, Down and Antrim is now available here (click here to view).
Ireland has 3200 km of beautiful, rugged coastline. This immense coastline offers some incredible sea swimming spots
How do you find these amazing hidden swim spots when there's thousands of kilometres of coastline? Well, we've made it a little bit easier by putting over 160 of Ireland's best sea swim spots into crisp detail.
Every spot has key information like Dangers (Riptides, Currents, Deep Water), Access Difficulty, Spot Type (Sandy Beach, Rocks, Pier, etc.), Lifeguard Presence and Blue Flag status.
The Sea Swim Map can act as an ever-present inspiration to swim more, explore amazing new places and to remember beautiful places you have swam in the past.
Want to add your own swim spots? Or, mark off spots with a tick once you've swam there ? Just grab a ballpoint pen and you can easily add them to the map yourself.
Sea Swimming can boost your immune system, reduce stress, improve circulation and give you a natural 'high' by releasing endorphins.
Yes, we sell amazing maps. But what we're really selling is inspiration. Inspiration to embrace your passions, to showcase them and to explore them fully.
That's our goal - to help you discover new places and give you a gentle push to get out there and explore them.

1. Safety: You are entirely responsible for your own safety when swimming. We have done our best to convey the most accurate information, but there is every chance that we have missed some dangers or facts. The fact that a danger is not noted for a spot does not mean it is not present, we simply may not know about it. Always observe present conditions, ask a local if unsure, tell someone where you're swimming and if in doubt, don't swim.
2. Framed Maps arrive with the map in protective packaging separate to the frame. You simply need to place the map inside the frame yourself. This is a simple 2-3 minute task and requires no tools or expertise.
3. The map is an artistic work designed to inspire. It is not a navigational map and while every effort has been made to make it accurate, we do not guarantee the correctness of labelled spots or terrain features. All details of the map can be seen in the photos above and it is sold as is.
Also available as a black & white minimalist version here.
I bought a swim map of Ireland as a gift. My friend was delighted. Great design, good quality, and quick delivery.
Spotted this on Instagram and immediately thought the Irish Sea swim map would be an ideal Christmas present for me sister in law. Easy to order, prompt delivery and excellently packaged. A triumph! Great details on the map.
I'm delighted with the beach towel. It's super soft, brilliant white and the print is crystal clear. It's perfect and I can't wait to give it as a gift at Christmas.
Absolutely delighted with this, I gave it to my sister for a birthday present, she in turn was delighted with it and has hanged it pride of place in her new conservatory. Her target is to swim all the locations identified on the chart, and she will tick them off on the map as she goes!! Great product and really great gift!!
I bought this map for my husband for Father’s Day from the kids! He is a keen sea swimmer and he just loved this map! We now have it hanging in our holiday home by the sea and love it!! We would highly recommend it. 👍
I bought this map as a present for my wife to mark our 25th wedding anniversary. We both love standing next to it and reminiscing about the places we have swam and explored around the coastline of Ireland. It also reminds us that there are so many more adventures ahead of us. Thank you Bill.
Such great quality and amazing service. Would highly recommend the wooden Irish sea swimming frame .
A fantastic present for an avid swimmer or anyone who wants to know where there are nice beaches in Ireland!
Just received my Sea Swim map and it is even better in person. I am absolutely delighted!
