Family Swim

Family Swim / Shallow Swim

At Sport Ireland Campus our competition pools are used to teach kids how to swim and to provide a facility in which elite athletes and the community can use swimming as a way to get fitter, more active, and to train. However, it’s important to remember that swimming can also be fantastic fun! so whether you want to help your children practice their swimming skills or your family needs some bonding time, Family Swim is the perfect option for you!

Please note, Our Competition Pool is separate to AquaZone.

Please ensure to always check our Pool Availibity Timetable section below to avoid disappointment.
