HYDROTHERAPY POOL CLOSURE
It is with regret that due to health and safety concerns we have had to make the decision to close the hydrotherpay pool. Unfortunately, large sections of the pool have come loose and have fallen into the pool, and because of this the entire pool is having to be reconstructed. We are estimating these works could take up to 10 weeks to complete and so we will potentially be looking at a date in May for reopening.
We sincerley apologise to all our pool users for this disruption and will keep people updated via our website and our Facebook page. Please also see the link to our events menu where there is a full statement on this matter. http://www.stgabriels.ie/news_events/urgent_notice-hydropool_closure/
Hydrotherapy is the use of water at an increased temperature – in this case, 32˚ Celsius (6˚ higher than a regular pool) to relieve pain and promote physical wellbeing , as well as for the maintenance of health and the treatment of injury and disability. Hydrotherapy helps to maximise your level of function – both physical and psychological.
The purpose-built hydrotherapy pool at St. Gabriel’s welcomes you. Built in 2009, the pool’s original purpose was for children with disabilities who attend St. Gabriel’s services, but public demand has prompted us to open the pool to the wider community for both groups and individuals.
Our Hydrotherapy Pool Features:
- Warm water - 32˚ Celsius and warm poolside temperature
- Stepped and poolside hoist access
- Therapeutic jets
- Spacious wheelchair-accessible changing room with overhead hoists
