The outdoor, heated, swimming pool on the grounds of Ballymaloe House is filled as soon as the weather gets warm enough - usually sometime in May, and emptied when it gets too chilly to swim - usually in late September. It has a large shallow end and a separate paddling pool making it ideal for children, however, it is possible to do lengths if exercise is what you are after. It is free for residents to use. There is no life guard at the pool so children need to be accompanied by an adult at all times. Please contact us if you would like to know if the pool will be full during your stay.
