Vampire Swim

October 31, 2023 @ 6:30 PM 8:00 PM

Vampire Swim’s international blood drive by open water swimmers worldwide is now underway. The Swim is an informal open water swim and costume party held on Halloween in approximately 20 venues in Ireland, Scotland, Ontario, and around the United States. Swimmers are asked to give blood in the six weeks prior to the swim or make a donation to Blood Bikes.

Limerick has become an official venue, swimmers will donate warm-blood to take a cold dip in the shannon for what is sure to be fang-tastic event. Swimmers will be encouraged to dress up for the blood curdling occasion.

The bathing area  of the Curraghgour Boat Club will be decorated with lanterns, pumpkins and the sights of medieval Limerick. Afterwards, a spooktacular post-swim feast awaits. Hot drinks and treats will be served by the hearth of the Curraghgour Boat Club.

The bathing area opens at 6:30pm on Hallowe’en, the 31st October at The Curraghgour Boat Club. Spaces must be prebooked with warm-blood.
