Not like other Dublin City swimming pools

Our Sandymount swimming pool in Dublin 4 is different than normal 25-meter swimming pools in Dublin City.  Our Sandymount swimming pool is a luxurious 25 metre ‘thalassotherapy’ pool.

Unlike normal swimming pools in Dublin, our Sandymount swimming pool does not use heavily chlorinated water.  Instead, the pool is continuously filled with only natural seawater

Members say swimming in our Dublin 4 swimming pool is like swimming in the warm seas of Hawaii, Sri Lanka, Florida, or Jamaica.

Where does the seawater come from?

Time to treat yourself at our thalassotherapy swimming pool

The saltwater for the thalassotherapy pool at Sandymount comes directly from the sea into a natural spring buried deep under West Wood Club. 

To clean the natural sea water, the first step is to pump it into huge balance tanks. Secondly, the water then goes through a large manganese filter. Next, we send the sea water through four filters. And then finally, the seawater is pumped into the swimming pool at Sandymount.  

For maximum health benefits, the saltwater continuously circulates through the four swimming pool filters. Ready for you to feel like you’re swimming in the warmest seas. 

The swimming pool with no smell of chlorine

The thing you notice as you step down into Sandymount swimming pool is the lack of any chlorine smell. Why? Because you are swimming in saltwater from the sea.  Instead of large amounts of chlorine, our Dublin 4 swimming pool uses a one-million-euro filtration system. A pool filtration system designed exclusively for ‘thalassotherapy’ saltwater pools.

The warmest swimming pool in Dublin 

Most swimming pools are 26 to 28 degrees.  We keep the thalassotherapy swimming pool at Sandymount at 34 degrees.  The extra heat allows the pores of your skin expand. This helps your body absorb the health preserving nutrients from the natural seawater.

We also keep the air temperature at our Sandymount swimming pool at a constant 36 degrees. That’s 34 degrees in the water and 36 degrees outside. The perfect treat for your body. The only problem of course is you might never want to leave. 

But if it does get too hot, don’t worry. We have a poolside ‘ice-room’ waiting for you as you step out of the swimming pool.

Swimming pool perfect for non-swimmers

Our Dublin 4 swimming pool is 25 meters long. And only 1.2 meters deep. The shallow water makes it perfect for non-swimmers.  Walk up and down the pool as long as you like. You’re completely safe. 

And of course, the walking in saltwater is excellent exercise for toning your hips and thighs. 

Our Dublin 4 swimming pool offers another benefit for people who cannot swim, or people who are afraid of water. The salt in the seawater makes your body more buoyant. This makes it easier for you to float. 

The saltwater swimming pool is also perfect for those who just want to relax and de-stress. The swimming pool is below ground level so nobody is looking in at you. The pool is completely private and peaceful. Just enter from the changing rooms, swim, lie back, relax, take it easy.
