Hydrotherapy Pool – toddler swimming

St Gabriel’s Centre Hydrotherapy Pool open sessions for toddlers has been the most recent addition to our weekly routine. I’m not one for freezing swimming pools so 32 degree water and 32 degree deckside temperature is more my scene!

The Centre recently opened the pool to toddlers Tuesday afternoons from 4.30 to 5.15pm – prior to this it may have been only available to the centre for the treatment of disabilities and physiotherapists (need to check this).

There is a specialised pool for babies and toddlers and swim rings, water toys are all around the edges. For Molly the pool is the perfect water depth and the perfect size – she can enjoy bouncing around independently while never being too far out of my reach.

Other Open Sessions Times:
Mon: 12-1pm
Tues: 5.15-6pm and 6-6.45pm
Wed: 2.30 – 3.30pm

Rates: Adult €15 per session or €80 for 10 sessions. Children €10 per session
