I know what "acabar de" means, it means just did something and 'tener que" means have to do something but what does "ir a" mean?

ir al means to go, for example when you ask to go to the bathroom, "puedo ir al baño" you're saying to go, you can also use the verb voy, which means to go but you still have to use voy, so its "voy a ir a la piscina" im going to the pool

Edit: corrected some spelling errors.

"Voy a la piscina" = "I'm going to the pool." / "Voy a ir a la piscina" = "I'm going to go to the pool." - samdie, MAR 29, 2010

ir a = to go to

Examples:

¿Vas al teatro? = Are you going to the theater?

Ella quiere ir a la playa. = She wants to go to the beach.

Vamos al otro lado. = Lets go across the way.

It means to go to, as a destination. Also, as h1deaway says, when it's conjugated, it means going to, as in "I'm going to write an answer". (Voy a escribir una respuesta).
