The sun was high as we arrived mid-day at Larrybane Bay, Paul, his son Kealan and I. As we walked down the path and got our first view of the bay my breath was almost taken away. The white cliffs, reminiscent of Dover, then the rocky shoreline similar to a Croatian coast and the tall grass-topped and sheer cliff islands rising out of the sea, like something straight out of a movie shot in Thailand. Who would believe we had such a place in Ireland.

This is a crowd-sourced map. Abilities vary, and conditions change. Always assess risks for yourself before getting in.
This is an advanced swim for the experienced open water swimmer. Although not difficult it requires knowledge of the swimmers limitations and of the local tides.
It is wise to avoid the bay on the Sheep Island side of Larry Bane as here the currents are much stronger and the eddies and tides can be powerful.
