Oakgrove’s 18m swimming pool was designed with swimmers and those learning to swim in mind.

Its a rectangular deck level pool ideal for lane swimming while it includes both a deep and shallow end along with a stairway entrance so that even the most nervous learner wont feel overwhelmed.

It also includes two hydrotherapy areas, a toddler pool, sauna and steam room so those looking to relax aren’t for gotten about!

We have been running swimming classes in the Lavanagh centre in Ballintemple for over 25 years and we still teach group swimming classes there for children as well as in Oakgrove.

Adult group swimming lessons take place in Oakgrove on a Monday night for beginners and a Wednesday for improvers and advanced levels.

For those interested in private one to one lessons we have a variety of teachers many of whom with a background in competitive and open water swimming. For any nervous swimmer rest assured that your teacher will be in the water with you helping to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
