There are two natural mineral pools at Athenree Hot Springs & Holiday Park. The larger pool is at 33-35C with an average depth of 1.3m and also has a shallow section for toddlers. Our smaller adult relaxing pool is at a temperature of 39.5C. A change room with toilets, showers and heated floors is located within the complex.


Where does the water come from?

20150103_180821 The pools are fed from an underground aquifer 250 metres deep - mineral water is pumped constantly through the pools and the volumes are replenished every 3-4 hours. Both pools are emptied and cleaned daily.

We have installed a water-to-water heat pump which recovers heat energy from water discharged from the pools and provides additional heat to the incoming geothermal water flowing to the plunge pool - this has meant that we have been able to greatly reduce energy inputs and reduce our CO2 emissions by 32 tonnes each year!

We only ask that children are closely supervised and that swimmers observe some basic rules for the safety and consideration of others. Toddlers (12 months - 2.5 years) are required to wear swim nappies which are available to purchase at the office on arrival, and  sorry the pools are not suitable for children under 12 months.
