Active 24 fitness
We are very busy at the moment here in the Connacht Hotel with our renovations in Active 24 Fitness. The gym currently is undergoing a massive facelift, which includes extending the floor space and the acquisition of new equipment to add to the existing compliment. The 24 hour gym which is very popular with guests and members alike is shut for the week but we are still offering classes throughout the day so that members are accommodated during the week. The pool area is operating uninterrupted during the week so you can enjoy a swim, sauna, Jacuzzi and the steam room. We can’t wait to see the finished product this weekend when the doors open and we get back to normal in our brand new gym.
