    Anyone know, can I just turn up on Xmas morning and do a swim at the 40ft? Any advice appreciated. Have never done it before. Kids coming with me.

    Yep anyone can go on the day, will be jammers though and car parking will be worse than on a hot summer's day.

    I used to do the 40ft on Christmas day but find it's just too jammed now, same with Seapoint and Sandycove. It's good craic don't get me wrong and the atmosphere is good but it's just too busy for me.

    Last year I did the new Dun Laoghaire baths and you could see the crowds at Sandycove from there lol. The cafe there is open on the 25th too.

    Vico is another good shout, the naturists out there will be at Whiterock i'd imagine, not one for the kids though lol.

    Depending on where you are based, Portmarnock will be busy too.
