Goldfish Swim School planned for Dublin

Dublin is set to get a swim school in January.

Goldfish Swim School, based in Birmingham, Mich., plans to expand in Dublin in January with a franchise, at a location yet to be announced.

Goldfish Swim School was founded in Birmingham in 2006 and focuses on swim lessons and water safety instruction for infants and children up to age 12.

"We wanted to open a swim school where children would not only feel comfortable, but would be genuinely excited to come and learn how to swim," founder Chris McCuiston said in a news release from the company.

"Our facilities offer a bright, welcoming environment where young swimmers can have fun and learn at their own pace."

The facilities offer heated pools, private changing rooms, concession stands and low instructor to student ratios.
