Swimming Lessons

Learn to Swim at Splashworld!
We’re thrilled to start our new 7-week swimming term from February 24th – March 1st. Join us for a term filled with progress and fun in the water. For those currently enrolled, auto re-enrollment emails will be sent on the final day instead of second last this term. This is to allow instructors to do a quick assessment of children that missed assessment week due to the midterm break, etc.

Please note that due to the St Patrick’s day bank holiday, our Sunday and Monday lessons will run for a 6-week term instead. If you wish to request a move please complete this form: Swimming Lesson move requests. Typically a 7 week term of swimming lessons is €65 per child, with a discount for 3 siblings. Prokids is €45 for 7 weeks.
