For the courageous, one can always take a dip in Lough Derg at Two Mile Gate (Ballycuggaran Beach), which proudly flies the Blue Flag indicating that swimming is safely permitted. There are no lifeguards on duty, so swimming is at your own risk. This location is very popular for many of the triathlon events as well as the Christmas Day Charity Swim. Brrrr!
During the summer months you will often see the local kids diving off the bridge or the mooring piers in Killaloe/Ballina into the River Shannon. (This is not recommended for those who don't know the waters.)

There is a public outdoor heated swimming facility at Riverside Park in Ballina during the summer months for children of all ages which is open from May to September.
