Frequently Asked Questions
Does the center have parking?
As part of the Dublin City Council initative to reduce traffic in the city Swan Leisure does not have a private car park however there is plenty of street parking available and a bus stop right on our door step.
How early do you have to book into the classes before they begin?
We only take class bookings in person on the day to avoid no shows. Most of our classes you can arrive a few minutes before the class and still get a space however our evening pilates classes are so popular that we would recommend arriving early!
