Review of Co Cavan Swimming and Leisure Centre

Posted on | August 24, 2007 | 1 Comment

Co Cavan Swimming and Leisure Centre,

Good, large swimming pool with plenty of room for children to splash around.

As we’re up visiting Granny at the moment, myself and the eldest 4 headed to the local swimming pool yesterday. This is a 25m “L” shaped pool, basically the small part of the L is the children’s section. Its a great size and is shallow enough for the 2 year old to walk and splash comfortably around. The water was quite warm and the lifeguard was very visible and attentive.

Another lifeguard offered us additional floatation devices to play with as the 2 younger kids had armbands on. There were plenty of foam frogs and foam rectangles in the pool already and she produced a foam tube which the 2 year old loves when asked.

There is no time limitation on swimming here and the family swim cost was €16.50, which I reckoned was good value. There are 2 changing rooms: male and female. Plenty of lockers, hairdryers and enough bench space. The showers are individual cubicles which I’m not too fond of, would prefer an open plan shower area where I can see all the kids at all times.

One other advantage of this pool is a poolside bathroom. This I find a great help, as on occasion one or more of the children needs to use the loo and this avoids us all having to leave the pool and traipse back to the changing room.

As we had had a great hour’s swimming and splashing about in a almost empty pool yesterday morning, we returned this afternoon. Unfortunately there were swimming lessons on, so there was less space.

There’s also a jacuzzi and steamroom aswell as a couple of swimming lanes for those serious about their swimming!

Overall, this is a great facility and very handy when we’re up visiting Granny. Will definitely be returning.

    Rightly said- Good, large swimming pool with all the basic facilities ..Just 16.5 euros are not that much with the secure and fun environment you are in…….Overall I too think its a great deal…
