One of the few outdoor pools remaining and let’s hope this one lasts. Castlerea is a substantial, 33 metre long pool which is well maintained and is a credit to the local council.
The pool has shallow and deep ends and alongside it a small pool for toddlers. Maybe more importantly for young people, the pool is heated.
There are individual changing cubicles, secure lockers and toilets – all well looked after. With fully trained lifeguards and a manager always on duty it is also a very safe place to be.
There are various opening hours (see their FB page – link below) and admission is 4.00 euro for adults and 3.00 for children. There are also season tickets. With plenty of room to sit alongside the pool, this is an ideal place for young people to hang out in a safe environment.
