Banagher outdoor pool is one of Ireland’s most unusal pools. It is located in the River Shannon, with Offaly on one side and Galway on the other. The pool is situated in Banagher Park, which is owned by the community and managed by Banagher Shannon Park committee, a group of trustees who are responsible for the overall management of the facility since 1979.
The pool is free to use and is perfect for an early morning swim. The water is clean and blue and you’ll be able to dry off with a picnic on the riverside afterwards or explore Banagher’s heritage at Cromwel’s Castle, located next to the swimming pol.
