The University Arena has played host to a huge variety of national and international team training camps over the years. Your team can carry out all weight training sessions in the NSCC and intermingle these with whatever training sessions you would like to carry out for your own sport. We are lucky to have all of our facilities very close together which suits a training camp perfectly.  We have a cardio fitness centre with cardio and weights machines on the floor beneath the NSCC and there is also a 50m swimming pool, jogging track and sprint track in the same building. Our grass pitches are on the doorstep and our 3G synthetic pitches are approximately a 5min drive away. There are a number of hotels in the vicinity and out of term time accommodation can be arranged on Campus. Food can also be arranged as part of an overall package. Other optional extras might include use of ice baths, classroom hire etc.

Teams who have trained here previously include:

  • Irish Rugby
  • Italian Rugby
  • Fiji Rugby
  • New Zealand All Blacks
  • Newcastle Falcons
  • Australian Rugby
  • Irish Paralympic Squad
  • Vietnamese Paralympic Squad
  • Limerick Hurlers
  • Galway Hurlers
  • Swim Ireland
  • Irish Weightlifting
  • Irish Boxing Camp

Limerick and UL – the future of Irish Sport – 1 location with everything – minus the traffic jams
