For a limited time, Clontarf's seawater pool will be available to the public.
Plan your excursion now because public access to Clontarf's open-air seawater pool is available during specific hours for the month of August. There are currently two open sessions a day from Monday to Friday from 10am-12pm or 2pm-4pm.
All sessions are €10 per person. (Children under 15-years-old require adult supervision).

The baths have been in use since 1886 and were refurbished in 2018 for €2.4 million. The baths have never been open to the public before having operated on a members-only basis or catered to private swim clubs. In the past, the baths hosted the Clontarf Swimming Club, swim meets, and waterpolo matches.
The pool follows the Olympic standard and allows for sea swimming in a controlled environment. The water is lightly chlorinated for health and safety and regularly filtered. Opening the site to the public was a condition of the sale of the Baths restaurant that went through earlier this year.
Visit the pool's website for information on how to sign-up for a time to visit.
