    No. about 2.5k. But the walk on a fine day is nice. Takes you through the town itself over the bridge and to the Hotel. I'd say 40/45min walk

    Response from ArklowBayHotel | Property representative |
    Hi Sally, Nothing has been booked as of yet. Regards
    There appears to be a new manager in the Leisure Centre, can anyone say when he is going to actually 'manage'? The place is still filthy, most of the staff are frequently on their phones and not monitoring what is happening in the pool eg. making sure children are behaving and not annoying people having a swim, and please stop them diving. Jacuzzi never cleaned properly and tiles in changing rooms still filthy with mould. I have some time left on my membership but won't be renewing it I think. Someone comes on to answer these questions and says ring me etc. ..a complete waste of time as my friend did and was spouted a lot of twaddle. We also spoke to staff in pool area, too busy gambling on their phones and just said they would pass on what we said to manager, two months later nothing even though we left our numbers.
