Waterworld Bundoran will remain closed for the 2020 season due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In a statement released by Waterworld on their social media channels, they said:
A message to our loyal and valued guests.
Bundoran Waterworld regrets to announce that Waterworld will be unable to open for the current season due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
This difficult decision was taken in the best interest of our valued Staff and Customers after detailed and lengthy consideration of Government and HSE Public Health requirements, detailed Risk Assessment of all aspects and attractions of Waterworld, severely diminished season and other relevant information.
This examination revealed that Waterworld could not provide the expected visitor experience in a Coronavirus safe environment having regard to physical distancing and public health requirements due to the nature of its fun attractions, layout etc. despite our best efforts to find a safe solution.
We appreciate that Waterworld is a major attraction in Bundoran’s tourism experience and it is with huge regret that we are unable to open and welcome you in the current season.
We would like to thank you for your continuing support and understanding and look forward to welcoming them back for next season when we will be open for Easter 2021.
The Waterworld team.
Sadly, this is also the case for the Seaweed Baths which forms part of the complex. The team released the following statement:
It is with regret that we announce that Bundoran Seaweed Baths will be unable to open for the 2020 season.
The Seaweed Baths is a shared facility with Waterworld and as a result of extensive risk assessments and consideration of government and HSE public health requirements across both facilities, it was concluded that opening of the Seaweed Baths was not going to be possible for this year.
We understand the disappointment of our guests but your wellbeing and that of our staff is our top priority on which we will not compromise.
Thank you for your understanding at this time and we look forward to seeing you all back when we open for the 2021 season on Good Friday April 2nd.
