If our 20m heated indoor pool just isn’t enough, the National Aquatic Centre is close by. Part of the National Sports Campus the aquatic centre housed Dublin’s first 50m pool when it opened its doors in 2003.
The indoor water center is one of the largest in the world. It comprises a:
- 10 lane 50m pool
- 25m international standard diving pool
- Leisure facilities including wave pools and a range of flumes
- Large gym
In 2012 the National Aquatic Center was used as a pre-Olympic training camp by 16 different countries who went on to compete in the London Olympics, including the gold medal winning Croatian water polo team. If you or someone in your family would like to be an Olympian one day, maybe this is the place to start!
Aquazone at the National Aquatic Centre
The Aquazone is a wonderful day out for all the family. There really is something for everyone, from thrilling water flumes for the older children (and adults!) to the pirate ship and lazy river for younger children or more relaxed visits. Ever wanted to try surfing? The Flow Rider allows you experience the thrill of catching a wave in the safety of a controlled environment and in only 3 inches of water. It’s an experience not to be missed.
The National Aquatic Centre from Clarion Hotel Liffey Valley
In even better news, The National Aquatic Centre is only a 10min drive away from the Clarion Hotel Liffey Valley. All that swimming is going to make you hungry, don’t forget to book lunch or dinner back at the hotel in one of our many restaurant options.LESS INFORMATION
