Take a refreshing dip in the Irish sea

Tides Near Me is available on iOS and Android


When the weather gets a little too warm, turn to the sea! Use the Tides Near Me app to track the currents in your area to figure out the perfect time for a refreshing dip. If you’re not up for a swim, use the app to tell you when the tide is at its lowest and hunt for treasure, like shells or sea glass.


Enjoy a fresh seafood meal on the coast


There’s something extra satisfying about a plate of crispy fish and chips on a summer afternoon. Add a splash of vinegar and a hearty sprinkling of salt and you’re set for a perfect warm-weather meal. If you’re a little more adventurous and prefer something that will cool you off, go for an order of oysters on the half shell.


Take a hike!
