We drove an hour and half to bring kids swimming but the pool closed, and nothing on web pages to inform us of this. The web pages should be up dated very misleading.

Hello KBowens, I am sorry to hear you and your family travelled such a distance to our facility and arrived to find it closed. Our facility was extensively damaged by severe flooding in January of this year and has remained closed for renovations since then. Unfortunately we do in fact have notifications on our website which states we are currently... More

I brought my son here for swimming lessons and like I said I couldn't use the ladies toilets cause were so dirty.Can't believe public place gets away with this. Standards are so low. Charging rooms are cold. Place is always busy so I guess the management don't feel need to put in the effort. Pity cause great location. Whole place... More

Had a great experience at Leisureland with my two kids. They loved the obstacle course and they forced me to go down the slide but I loved it! :) Lifeguards are all very attentive and made me feel at ease as my children wouldn't be the strongest swimmers yet. It was good value and a nice day out and I... More

On a saturday morning as it appeared there were classes on when i arrived i questioned this to the staff member at the main desk and was told we couldnt acess the pool for over 3 hours. I was more or... More

Patrick R, as discussed via email correspondence with your wife, we apologise once again for the negative experience you and your family had at our facility. A document on our website was incorrect on the day which in turn led to the encounter with our staff member when you arrived and were openly aggrieved when informed that the pool was... More

I was disappointed to read the recent reviews of Leisureland on TripAdvisor as I had been there about 5 years ago and found it to be very good. OK, so I agree that areas of it could do with a lick of paint, but I didn't find it to be the Black Hole of Calcutta that some of the other... More

Went there with the family this summer. We all loved it and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The lifeguards were great...really looked like they were enjoying themselves and were great with the kids. Facilities were great and in good condition. Definitely will be back on my next visit to Galway :)

I found this establishment to be old and worn as a leisure centre and found the pool to be dirty and in need of a good clean while the staff acted like the didnt want to be there very off putting

We visited here with family and friends last week and were so very disappointed with what we found. For a first we found the staff quite unfriendly and unhelpful generally. The cafe staff next door were friendly but food choice was only fair. The whole complex needs a lot of paint and a major clean up. There appeared to be... More
