National Aquatic Centre
The National Aquatic Centre (NAC) is a water-sports facility located in Abbotstown, Blanchardstown. The NAC was built to be the home of Irish swimming, with modern facilities such as its 50m competition pool (one of only three in Ireland), diving pool with movable floor, and leisure centre - it is Ireland's largest indoor water leisure facility. The centre was completed and opened in March 2003 and hosted the Special Olympics in August 2003 and the European SC Championships in December 2003. It can accommodate 2,500 seated spectators.
