Seas the Day

So good for us that some doctors are even prescribing it, if you’d like to experience the adrenaline and exhilaration that comes from sea swimming but may be a little intimidated, Seas the Day is the perfect way to gently launch yourself into a healthy new habit. Costs from €509 for two people.

  • One night stay in a Deluxe Sea View Room
  • Three-course dinner in the Bar Restaurant
  • Full Irish breakfast
  • Two half-hour sessions with your pro swim tutor

Check into your seaview room and have an early evening session with your tutor in our infinity pool. Your tutor, an avid sea swimmer and highly qualified elite trainer and teacher, will guide you through your first day’s session in the pool at Cliff House Hotel, along with a discussion of sea swimming’s benefits, an analysis of your technique and a little practice.

That evening enjoy dinner in The Bar Restaurant with its focus on seasonal local produce and foraged ingredients, and get an early night in preparation for a morning in the waves, weather permitting, the following day.

Meet your tutor bright and early in the morning for another half hour session, either back in the pool or, if you have a wetsuit with you and the weather allows, in the seawater rockpools or beach by the hotel, followed by a well-deserved leisurely breakfast.

Seas the Day costs from €509 for two people sharing. Available on Sunday and Monday nights on selected days. Upgrade supplements will apply for other room types.
