'Forty Foot' on world 'Adrenaline List'

Swimming in the Forty Foot and surfing monster waves at the Cliffs of Moher are among a bucket list of outdoor thrills listed in Lonely Planet’s new guide to global adventures.
The ' Atlas of Adventure' is the adrenaline encyclopaedia from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe of the best outdoor experiences from over 150 countries.
Ireland is singled out as a “top destination for coastal adventures, testing endurance events and multiday walks” with the reward of “end-of-the-day pints and pub music”.
In amongst chapters on ascending Ecuador’s spectacular Avenue of Volcanoes and ice-skating around Stockholm’s archipelago in Sweden, is a recommendation on wild swimming in Ireland with Dublin’s famous Forty Foot given a special mention.
“Ireland has a long tradition and a contemporary enthusiasm for open-water swimming. The Forty Foot on the edge of Dublin Bay is mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses and still attracts sea swimmers year-round while each August the capital’s Liffey River hosts the world’s second oldest continuously swum open race.”
The Lonely Planet suggested that the relatively new land-based endurance sports of adventure racing and ultra running have soared in popularity in the aftermath of the recession and could even be an unconscious response to the economic crash.
