Skating is a great way to keep fit and have fun, but with Irish weather being so unpredictable it can be difficult to find time or a safe place to practice. Our Open Skate sessions allow our members to skate with friends and other members with music and training aids available. Sessions are under qualified coaches and experienced Skaters.
