OLD SWIMMING POOL ON SANDYMOUNT STRAND - BUILT BY THE MERRION PROMENADE AND BATHS COMPANY IN 1883

OLD SWIMMING POOL ON SANDYMOUNT STRAND


Unfortunately not much remains today.

The Merrion Promenade Pier and Baths Co built Sandymount swimming baths in 1883. The baths measured approximately 40 by 40 metres, with a 75-metre pier added in 1884. The pier featured a bandstand halfway along it and summer concerts were regularly held there for many years. By 1920, the pier had deteriorated so much that it had to be demolished. The concrete baths section, which resembles a small harbour, remains.
