The National Aquatic Centre is a venue of nationwide importance to Ireland, it being where most of the country’s water sports and swimming tournaments take place. Seating for 2,500 spectators provide opportunity for the year-round tourneys and events to receive acclaim, with many of Ireland’s top athletes train in a built-for-purpose sports park adjacent to the centre itself.
As well as its status as a sports venue, the National Aquatic Centre also acts a leisure centre where families and hobbyist swimmers can go to enjoy themselves and keep fit. Many groups and training sessions are held in the centre every year, with the most promising participants shortlisted for the high-performance swimming unit specially created for Ireland’s potential up-and-coming athletes, who practice in the centre’s Olympic-sized swimming pool.
