• Location: Island located off the western coast of Ireland
• Course: Scenic Irish terrain that requires careful navigation due to tides and currents
• Distance: 16+ miles (25.7K) of coastline
• Date: July and August
• Description: First circumnavigation swim successfully completed in July 2008 by Ned Denison in 8 hours and 52 minutes. Jellyfish can be abundant when water temperature rises above 55ºF (13ºC). Numerous fish species and basking shark are popular among fishermen in the area. Water temperature expected to be under 60ºF (15ºC). Circumnavigation should be carefully planned for optimal tidal assistance.
