Splashworld is a public swimming pool that opened circa 1992 and has not been updated in the least since then. It is exactly the same without an investment of a further euro since the day it opened.

It's extremely expensive with an adult and child ticket costing €18.

Changing rooms and floors are generally dirty.

Staff are usually very friendly.

The facility comprises of two large tube slides which are fun, a smaller indoor child's slide, a wave machine which is activated every 30 minutes or so. There is also a steam room and jacuzzi.

If going to keep children entertained, it will keep them happy for an hour tops. Needs updating and investment.

For adults the upstairs gym is well equipped.

“Great Time”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

As a child I went to Splashworld, now I bring my two young children. We are so lucky to have this in Tramore. Changing rooms can be a bit dirty but there is always a cleaner going around. What changing rooms are spotless!!!

“Easter Camp”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had an easter camp for the kids which they loved. Not too expensive and well worth it. It would have been better if it had gone on for longer than an hour and a half but the kids enjoyed it anyway.

“Rip Off - Freezing Cold”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Brought my 6 year old daughter here over Easter weekend. 18 Euro for one adult/one child. The pool was cold, jaccuzzi in the pool very cold too. Shower area ok, hot showers but only two of the showers buttons worked properly. If you got a shower that did'nt work properly, you had to put your back to the button to hold it in to keep the water running??

It is totally overpriced for a swim................I realise it's a short season in Tramore, but seriously the management need to reduce their prices to get decent footfall through the door. The pool was not busy on Easter Saturday and I'm not surprised as people are not prepared to pay inflated prices particularly for a mediocre facility.

I visist Waterford a couple of times a year and will not go to Splashworld again.
