Clontarf Baths and Assembly Rooms, as it was known, opened c.1886 and featured large, tidal, seawater swimming pool that juts out from the promenade wall into the bay. It was a huge hit with locals and even with people from the wider Dublin area who would take an omnibus out to Clontarf for the day.It closed in 1996, 110 years after it opened, and now the Clontarf Baths have been lovingly refurbished into a new, super-stylish restaurant and bar.
