We are committed to a National Quality Standard through Ireland Active's National Quality Standards Programme which is the 'quality standard for Spa and Leisure' that all leisure facilities must strive to achieve.
The National Quality Standard programme highlights to our customers, staff and the general public that our organisation is committed to achieving the highest standards of quality in the Leisure Industry. The NQS is an independently audited award, recognised throughout the Leisure Industry, endorsed by Fáilte Ireland and the Irish Hotels Federation.
The NQS is the only comprehensive quality award and measurement of standards for gyms, swimming pools and leisure amenities in Ireland.
The NQS awards are judged by an independent jury made up of experts from a number of nationally recognised organisations including Fáilte Ireland, the HSE, the Irish Hotels Federation, Consumer Association, Swim Ireland and Irish Water Safety. Judging is thorough and rigorous ensuring that fitness, gym instructors and lifeguards are fully qualified, facilities are safe, clean and hygienic; and that equipment is maintained correctly.
