The Kingfisher Club NUI Galway is situated in the heart of NUI Galway university, just beneath the Quincentenary bridge towards the East side of the city.

With a state-of-the-art 25m pool, designed with both the swimmer and learner in mind,  heated to 28 degrees with the innovative ultra-violet pool system, reducing the amount of chlorine needed in the water. The pool is split into sections – 3 lanes of differing speed for the regular swimmer and a separate section for those looking to practice their swimming stroke.

The bright, vibrant gym offers up over 100 pieces of cardio and a superb weights section, with a separate core studio, ideal for pre-exercise warm ups, post-exercise warm downs and more importantly working on your 6 pack!

Along with a fantastic gym and pool, the Kingfisher Club NUI Galway has two dedicated fitness studios with over 35 fitness classes on offer each week, ranging from the cardio-boosting ‘spinning’ to muscle-enhancing ‘Body Pump’, along with yoga, Pilates and Zumba, to name just a few.

For those who prefer the team exercise, there is a squash court, racquetball court and a huge indoor sports hall, where participants have the chance to play (among others) basketball, indoor football, badminton, volleyball and table tennis.

Whether you are wish to learn to swim, get fit or participate in team sports, the Kingfisher NUI Galway can cater for your every need – just ask, they’re always happy to accommodate!
