Now in 2014 under the new management of local woman Jennifer Deasy, Dunmanway Pool is busier than ever and Jennifer and her team are looking at ways to the revitalise this facility and bring it to life again as they look forward to a brighter future with the build of a new facility Dunmanway Municipal Complex due to commence in 2015. Whilst the new build is under construction the existing facility will remain open for business offering a range of classes and activities for all ages.

Jennifer, who was previously the Leisure Club and Spa Manager at The Oriel House Hotel in Ballincollig, is delighted to be working in her hometown and looks forward to relocating there permanently in the near future.

“Our main focus is to provide a variety of activities, from adult and children’s swimming lessons, aqua aerobics and the recently launched pool birthday parties to intensive lane and triathlon training. We want to focus on becoming the The Home of Swimming in West Cork.”
