Stradbally Lake is a new addition to Electric Picnic this year. The ancestral lake is welcoming swimmers of all-ages on the Stradbally estate.
The lake is accessible via the the Jimi Hendrix Campsite area daily (see times below).
Some local history?
The course of the Crooked River was moved to power a mill on the land of Stradbally Hall by monks from the local Franciscan Monastery during the late 15th century. The manmade lake was then created by the ancestral owners of Stradbally Hall: the Cosby family during the early 18th century. Since then it has been maintained by the family, including a memorable excavation during the 1870s when a hundred men with a hundred wheelbarrows who worked in the Malting factory from Stradbally town manually dredged the lake.
