The Club playing rooms are on the first floor overlooking the river Lee where, in season, rowing clubs can be seen practising on the river. The premises facilitate meetings of the South Munster Region and because of its convenience to all facilities Regional Competitions are also held there.
During its eighty years the Club has acquired its own premises and many national and international players have been members of the club, to name a few, Hugh McGann, Derek O' Gorman, Rory Boland, Anne Dillon, the late Denis Dillon and Joan Crowley and many more..
