Sligo sports complex pool is so dirty it’s such a shame. Changing room smell and are freezing. The toilets are filthy and smell of urine. AFAIK the Yeats Hotel in Rosses Point do take pay as you go? Have gone there a good bit since I decided to boycott the sports complex as it is so dirty.
Thanks for telling us Laura
I also used Sligo sports complex in Sept 2018. I was a visitor and knew as a public facility it would be a 25 metre pool which I enjoy for my Ironman training. It served all my needs it was clean had lockers showers toilets. Because it’s not spanking new and shiny it’s hard to make it gleam. I say Laura get into that lovely clean pool swim for 1 hour come out feeling fit and slim and shower and use the toilet and you’ll worry less about the shiny tiles. Fab facity on your doorstep so cheap and lovely friendly helpful staff. I’ll see you there in my lunch break to day.
Thank you Marie
Pier Head hotel is open to the public on a pay as you go basis. Hotel is open at weekends only until season starts in mid March. Not sure if the pool is open until hotel is open fully Thanks for info about Yeats country hotel didn’t know non members could swim there.
Thanks Lisa, we contacted the Pier Head but they didn’t get back to us.
