    Susan and the gang at Swim Camp are brilliant! I would fully recommend Swim Camp for novice swimmers who want to ease themselves into the water, right up to advanced swimmers wishing to push their stamina and improve their stroke. There's a very supportive atmosphere amongst swimmers, fostered by Susan. The coaches have a keen eye for where each individual is at in their swim journey and they encourage and push swimmers to reach their individual goals. Also, what a venue! You really can't beat Clontarf Baths as the perfect spot for sea swimming development and training!

    Best kid’s swimming lessons around.After watching my 7 year old struggle to do more than 3 strokes in another place for over a year - the amazing coaches at swimCamp identified what she needed to do in 5 minutes and she was doing half a length after a session!!My 5 year old spent 1.5 years at other lessons in a baby pool and again after 2 sessions she was jumping in the regular pool touching the bottom, and actually did a few strokes by herself in deep water.These are the swim lessons of all swim lessons.Small groups of 6ish, coaches in.the.pool. with the first three levels which is a complete game changer for confidence. My girls skip to the lessons each week, feel such confidence in themselves and their abilities and they love swimming now.BIGGEST stamp of approval from me. Do yourself and your kids a favour and go to swim camp.
  • Avatar Philomena Curley ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    These guys are pros. Making it a safe and fun learning environment they have taken me from a non-swimmer to feeling comfortable enough to sign up for my first triathlon! I did a 6week beginner course and a 4week intermediate technique course and couldn’t recommend enough for everyone, all levels. Just do it!
  • Avatar Deborah Anzuluni ★★★★★ 4 months ago
    I booked my first 4 weeks beginner lessons and my swimming have improved tremendously. The swimming coaches are very special and the key to such successful lessons , their experiences, their attention to details when conducting a lesson and their energy around the room is wonderful. They deserves their flowers . I on the other hand, will continue with my lessons at swim camp until I start walking on water!. :). Here is to the wonderful coaches at Belvedere college, Swim camp.
  • Avatar Estelle Hanley ★★★★★ 6 months ago
    I have just completed my first set of classes with Swim Camp in Belvedere college. I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and learnt a lot in each class. It’s good value for money and the teachers are excellent! Would highly recommend and will be returning for more.
