We were eagerly awaiting our trip to Waterworld having missed it the past years due to covid. All booking online in advance now - seemed a great idea. However it was absolutely packed, far too many allowed in at the same allocated time. We couldn’t even get a changing room to dress after our time..so many people in the same position standing with no space to move in the changing area. Hoped with the allocated booking this would be ran much better - but sadly not. The kids loved it, great treat for kids but unfortunately it seems to be more about money and how many people you can get it rather than comfort and safety. Also young lifeguards all very ‘whistle happy’!!

Bundoran Waterworld does what it says on the tin. Ideal for the kids to swim and play until they drop. Very tropical conditions super heated like a giant sauna. Must be great on a wet cold winters day. It is a costly exercise especially if you are a family so we where disappointed when we the children got hungry and we left to be told we could not return. Children aged 9 6 and 3 needed to eat and drink. Either reduce the price for 2 hour swims or provide a day ticket and flexibility to leave the place for refreshments. It is easy to feel angry and ripped off when you encounter these money grabbing rules which hurt families who have paid top prices to enter. Shame on you Waterworld Bundoran.

Great for younger
Kids. But bigger kids got board fairly quickly
Looks much better on tv add than actually is.
An the heat inside the place would’ve melted you.

Lots of lifeguards on duty which was great to see. However they looked miserable in their job. The place is in an extremely bad need of a clean. One Family changing room we used there was that thick of dust in the roof vent you could no longer actually see the vent. The tiled walls were splattered with dirt. The lockers were filthy dirty. I certainly wouldn’t go back and I wouldn’t recommend it to others.

The only reason I rate 2, instead of 0 is for the lovely girls at reception! Absolutely perfect and also very kind mannerisms. I got through to the pool, and it felt cool walking in towards the water. When I got in, it was freezing! Tried to stick it out for around 10 mins and tried the other pool areas, too. The doors were also open, so I asked if they could be closed but wasn't allowed apparently. I had to leave, and my family followed not long after. Was an expensive trip, for ten minutes.

Decided last minute to book Water World as the weather changed & wanted something fun to do! I'm glad we did...adults & kids alike had a great time! The slides were fun for the kids (ours were 7-10 yrs old) & us adults really enjoyed the slides also. We all really enjoyed the wave pool...it was really good. Highly recommended!!!

48 euros for two adults and 3 children. The management of Waterworld need to think about their prices as people wont be back at these prices. Lower prices and your pool would be full knowing the irish climate as when we were there the pool was very quiet and we wont be back until our lotto numbers come up. Lagan Valley LeisurePlex £19 for a family of 5 for a great day out in a pool with twice the amount of slides, lazy river and pirate ship.Cop on folks or their will be more lifeguards than swimmers.

Myself and my 5 year old son visited Waterworld this August and ended up paying 19 euros to do so. Kids under 7 are prohibited from using the slides and so essentially, I paid 19 euros to use a pool and one small straight slide. Management need to review their pricing system. I ended up paying the same price as if my son were 7 and able to access all slides - not good value. The price for an adult (11 euros) did include use of sauna and steam room, but as I was there with no other adult, I was unable to avail of these. Pricing system not very fair for single parents either.

This place really needs to employ staff that actually want to work, young girl at entrance desk very unpleasant and afraid of smudging her make up or breaking a nail. When asked about family discounts she didn't want to know. It's very expensive for want you get, showers that don't work, tissues on bathroom floor in general needs a good clean and more family changing facilities. Won't be back in a hurry.

Had visited Bundoran in February 2017. Notice on door said place was due to open on Monday 10th April 2017. Booked family holiday for Easter holidays. When er arrived discovered place was not open until Friday 17th. Very disappointed family. Not good for tourists. UK holidays early so perhaps managment of this place should keep up with holiday dates of Europe's schools!!??

Good afternoon Breegedoodes, We are grateful for all reviews and appreciate you taking the time to let us know about your experience. We checked extensively for the misinformation but were unable to locate where you found that we were opening on the 10th of April. Sadly for Bundoran the strength of the visiting tourist market pre Easter is very low and most businesses cannot justify or afford to operating at such a quiet time. We keep a very close eye on our European counterparts and we do our best to support their visits where ever possible. Kind regards
