Interested in trying the swingers scene whilst in Ireland?
“Helping Ireland get over itself since 2009”, i-Kandi is a self-confessed emporium of debauchery and fine wine. This Limerick swingers club is a popular venue in Ireland for locals and for visiting international tourists. With back room play, members only evenings, a spa and wine bar i-Kandi has a little something for everyone.
We take a look at what the club offers its members and how you can get a piece of the action.
What is i-Kandi?
i-Kandi, based in Limerick, is a private members club with leisure facilities and wine bar on the premises. A swinger’s club that accepts members of all ages, backgrounds and interest, the prime focus of the club is on being open-minded.
What facilities are available at i-Kandi?
Club Carte Blanche
Open on Thursday and Saturday nights for members only, Carte Blanche is an anything goes, members only nightclub. Operating a simple policy that women are in charge of an anything goes attitude, the club provides a high-energy and alternative party atmosphere. The lounge and club plays host to plenty of adult play and attracts a big crowd from its membership.
What sets the i-Kandi members aside from other clubs in Ireland is a shared love for the finer things in life, including fine wine. The wine bar at i-Kandi is one of the draws and also helps lubricate those last minute nerves that the uninitiated might be feeling.
There is a ‘spa’ at the i-Kandi club which is open for non-members on a daily pass. As well as the coffee lounge you can find a sauna, sunbeds and laid back relaxing play areas in the back room. You do not get access to either the wine bar or back room on Thursday and Saturdays as this is for members only.
Day passes are charged at €22 with student prices ranging from €10-€15 depending on when you come. Multi-visit discounts are available with reduced rates for your 2nd visit, 3rd visit etc. within 10 days of your first visit.
If you just want to use the sunbed then you can pop in to use the facilities for just €5 for 20 minutes.

i-Kandi welcomes couples, singles as well as people who identify as LGBTQ. The club particularly welcomes individuals are non-conformist, creative, edgy, arty and sexy. Members vary in age from mid twenties to late fifties, generally affluent and accomplished with creative and open personalities.
