I'm a member of the Ben Dunne gym, Northwood and I find it brilliant. Great value for money, lots of great equipment, good classes, a pool, sauna etc. I really admire Ben Dunne for providing three gym's (so far) in Dublin of this standard for a price that noone else can compete with. Northwood have a sister gym southside called Carlisle. If its anything like Northwood, its worth a look. Check it out and see what you think.

Hi, thanks for that, I am visiting their other gym in Terenure, its great value at €330, so I'll have a look around later. I went to see Jackie Skellys on Saturday and its nice but expensive.

Thanks

I used to go to the UCD gym, it's very cheap and great except there is no pool.

Yes thats the Carlisle Gym I mentioned earlier. Very good value indeed. I've no experience of Jackie Skelly's however would be put off by some bad PR I've read about them on other forums. (e.g. www.askaboutmoney.com). Good luck and let us know how you get on! I'm off to the gym!

I researched loads of gyms before joining Carlisle and I think it's great value for money. I generally go during the day when it's quiet, although peak time is generally fine too (especialy in the pool)! I was a member of Jacki Skelly's beind the westbury before, but it's v pricey & v busy.

Hi BL

I'm a member of the Carisle and yes it is very good value for money, I generally go during the day and its buzzing but not too busy to get the machine you want and the pool is not overcrowded. I've never been at night but I believe after 7pm its quiet. I thinks its well run and I've joined up for the third year, my renewal membership was €250 and I see the price for new members at the moment is €295 thats as cheap as you will get I think.

As for Jackie Skelly I'm not impressed having been given the hard sell treatment a few years ago when I went to view the one in Parkwest I had to be very firm not to end up signing a contract before I went out the door, she tried to given me the old monthly payment trick, it left me with a very bad impression no matter how nice the gym looked.

good luck in your search and I hope you enjoy whatever gym you choose :)

hi

I was at the carlisle in terenure - it definitely quieter during the day. Peak period is v busy but if you don't mind waiting it fine. After 7pm is gets quieter.

I decided that pay as you go suits me better so i use tallaght leisure centre/markcievz centre (can't spell it) in town for swimming - I use them off peak periods. You can pay mthly to the gym or there is different options available at tallaght. It's only newish, so it is lovely and clean and staff are v friendly..
