About the Swimming pool

The original Charlestown Open Air Swimming Pool opened in July 1971 and is situated at Lowpark, on the Swinford Road.

Charlestown Swimming Pool is a community run venture and our aim is to provide a healthy, fun and safe swimming pool that will promote health, fitness and enjoyment for the local people and as a tourist attraction.

The swimming pool is 22 metres long and for over forty years has been a mecca for people wanting to learn how to swim, have fun, sunbathe, learn water safety and become lifeguards and swimming instructors.
