Swim Dungarvan Bay

The RNLI Helvick Swim is a family-friendly, community fundraiser event. Swimmers can choose to swim 4km or 2km along a marked course in Dungarvan Bay, finishing at Helvick Pier to a cheering crowd.

Instead of a signup fee, participants are requested to fundraise for the event by accepting sponsorship from within their own network of contacts.

The event has grown enormously in popularity over the years and has become a huge community event, attracting swimmers and visitors to Helvick in the Waterford Gaeltacht on the mouth of Dungarvan Bay from all over Ireland and beyond.

2km or 4km Sponsored Swim

Registered Swimmers can choose a distance that suits their ability and preference. Swimmers must be experienced in open water swimming.

The spectacle of the swimmers accompanied by a safety flotilla of kayakers, ribs and other boats swimming along the marked course in Dungarvan Bay will be quite a sight, as they swim into Helvick Pier.

Proceeds from this event directly fund operations at the RNLI.

Are you ready for the Helvick Swim challenge?

To take on Dungarvan Bay requires bravery, strength and dedication.
