The Belmullet tidal pool is located on Shore Road, in the waters of Blacksod Bay, a short walk from the town centre. It has a toddler’s section and a deeper section for experienced swimmers. In the months of July and August, there is a lifeguard patrol here. During this time, there are swimming and safety lessons for children.
Éalú Health & Leisure Centre has a 25m heated swimming pool, a kiddies pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. The swimming pool is equipped for entry by persons with special mobility needs. A qualified lifeguard is on duty during pool opening hours. All swimming gear can be purchased on the premises.
We encourage you to enjoy our many beautiful beaches, but it is not advisable to swim in places where there are no lifeguard patrols. Even in sheltered bays and coves, you must always be wary of rip currents, fast flowing tides, rocks, steep shelving beaches and dangerous waves etc. Use the Erris Beo app to discover one of the secret beaches of Erris!
