Pools tiny and not the best tbh. As far as I know it's open a fair bit but not always for students if your into serious swimming i'd say you'd be better off joining the gym in the glenroyal http://glenroyalhotelkildare.com/leisure_club.php
which is only a short walk from campus
Theres also other places around too in lexlip etc.
Theres also a swimming club on campus and you can apply for a scholarship and as far as I know training for that is in the national aquatic centre but you should really contact this guy for info on swimming :
