LeisureWorld Bishopstown is the home of swimming in Cork. At this one multi-use facility we have 3 swimming pools. The main pool is a 6 lane 25 metre pool ranging in depth from 1 metre to 2 metres ideal for swimmers of all levels and ages to learn, train, relax or simply have fun.

The 25 metre pool is flanked on one side by a large viewing gallery for the purpose of swimming galas and for parents to watch their children take part in swimming lessons.

Adjacent to the 25 metre pool is a 4 lane 18 metre pool. This swimming pool is used as an ancillary pool if the 25 metre is taken up with swimming lessons or other group bookings. This allows us to always ensure that we have at least 1 pool always open for public swimming.

Our third pool is our learner or toddler pool. This is available for public use when children’s lessons are not taking place here and is suitable for parents and children to learn and play.

Located around the swimming pool complex we have a changing village equipped with single and family cubicles as well as storage lockers and showers. We ask that parents and children use these facilities when using the swimming pools. We also have separate changing rooms for over 18 years of age also equipped with showers and lockers. A €1 coin is needed to use and lock the public lockers.

To the edge of our pool facilities we have a health spa with steam room and saunas to be enjoyed by users over the age of 18 years.
