    I go swimming here all the time, lovely staff and there are two pools, a shallow one for children and a regular one. They have lanes separated from the rest of the pool which is very good for people doing lengths. I have not been to the gym here before.

    Great Place to Swim and get to the Gym and loads of parking, when others who just arrive and then go for a run on the Ring road or pop over to the bridge club aren't using it, but booking a kiddies party and expecting the full payment up front is just too much. A booking fee of €50 would be fine but if your booking the obstacle course they want the full €130 up front first.. I just hope that nothing were to happen and the party got cancelled....or would they give you back your full €130?????

    Good training facilities, not very well equipped when there are more than half a dozen people lifting. There's only 1 squat rack and 2 benches. Space is a premium, but if you go at an off time you'll get a good workout in. Jacuzzi and sauna are nice to have available afterwards.

    Great FINA quality swimming pool. Low chlorine, temperature and pool chemicals very well controlled, pace clock always working. The deck and unisex (cubicles) changing area is very slippy, a problem caused during contruction and never really fixed. Price is okay if you get in before 9.30am on week mornings. Unfortunately, while the lane is always in place during public swim hours, the lifeguards are not aware of controlling the swimmer's lane by numbers or ability and I've suffered up to eight other swimmers in the lane, with six of those having no awareness or skill, who should not have been allowed in the lane. Overall though a good and professionally run pool with courteous staff.

Where to stay in Kilkenny

For a historical Irish experience, stay in Kilkenny County's namesake city, a medieval destination with no shortage of lodging options.
