One of the most experienced facility
providers in Ireland

LW Management’s expert team is more than 110 people strong. Together, we serve an annual footfall of over one million people, delivering more than 100 cultural events and teaching more than 200,000 children how to swim each year!

Our vision is simple: we are focused on getting more Cork people more active, more often. 

The route to improving the health of the city is clear; at LW Management, we promote active lifestyles by creating affordable membership options and a supportive, professional and innovative platform for our customers to succeed in achieving their goals.

In short, we work hard to ensure nobody is left out when it comes to living a healthy, happy lifestyle.


Over the past 20 years LW Management has grown and expanded, with multiple sites across the length and breadth of Cork City. With public footfall exceeding 1,000,000 each year between all locations, we are a direct point of contact for our local community.


In 2005, LW Management took over LeisureWorld Churchfield, which boasts panoramic views over the north side of the city. This facility is the second largest property in the LW Management portfolio and it has a special place in the community too.


A historic building, artfully repurposed for a new generation of visitors, St. Peter’s Cork is one of the most innovative and atmospheric venues in the city. Nestled in its own garden just of North Main Street, St Peter’s is Cork’s oldest church, with parts of the building dating back to the 12th century.

Mahon Golf

In 1978 Cork City Council commissioned the renowned Irish golf course architect Mr. Eddie Hackett to design an 18-hole golf course on the Mahon Peninsula. Ireland’s first purpose-made Municipal Golf Course opened in 1980 and remains the best course of its kind in the country.
