THE Aqua Dome has announced that it will reopen its doors to customers on Tuesday 15th March, almost two years to the day since it was forced to close due to the pandemic.
Coinciding with the extended St Patrick’s Day Bank Holiday weekend, the reopening of the facility will bring a timely boost to the tourism industry in Tralee and other parts of Kerry.
The leisure pool, with its fantastic features such as the waves, slides, and rapids, are a big attraction for children and the Vitality Spa is a huge draw for the adults.
Of course, it is worth noting that there is no time limit on your stay in the Aqua Dome which is a magnificent venue for all ages.
CEO of the Aqua Dome, Kieran Ruttledge, said: “We are delighted to be reopening once again. We are very aware of the importance of the Aqua Dome as it brings so much business to Tralee. It’s widely known that many people visit the area primarily because of the Aqua Dome. We hope it will be business as normal for the years ahead and we look forward to welcoming our staff and regular customers back.”
The Aqua Dome retained a core staff who have kept the place in excellent condition but plans for a new major attraction at the site were shelved because the funds were needed to offset losses caused by the closure.
The management remain mindful that the reopening of the Aqua Dome, which is powered by both gas and electricity, comes at a time when energy costs are on the rise and insurance premiums continue to be high.
“We are excited to welcome back our customers and we hope they will return in great numbers in the Spring and, in particular, during the peak months of July and August,” said Kieran Ruttledge.
