The pool room which is aimed at promoting relaxation and decreasing pain during labour is the only one of its kind in Dublin.

The newly-renovated suite, opened by Health Minister James Reilly yesterday, was built at a cost of €4.7m, some of which came from the Friends of the Coombe fundraising arm of the hospital.

The suite involves a 405sq metre extension to the original building.
