Your first family getaway together is a special experience, so get ready to make unforgettable memories together on a baby-friendly holiday in Ireland. Holidays with a baby under one can be stressful, but Center Parcs has been designed to make everything as relaxing and easy as possible. With baby-friendly lodges featuring highchairs and cots, family-friendly restaurants and activities for babies, we’ve thought of everything so you don’t have to worry about a thing.
Our lodges are all baby-friendly, with everything you need for a relaxing break with your little one. Whether you’re staying in a Woodland Lodge, an Exclusive Lodge or anything in between, you’ll find:
A cot (you’ll need to bring your own linen)
A super-sized storage cupboard for your pushchair
Forest views so little ones can spot wildlife
Please be aware that some lodges have steps to the entrance, so check this when booking.
You’ll find plenty of activities for babies. Why not introduce them to the joys of being in the water in our Baby Dolphins session, let them get hands on and creative in Fun Pots for Tots, get messy in Mucky Pups or explore their senses in Sensory Play?
Fun Pots With Tots
A fun, creative pottery painting session designed just for the little ones. Great for encouraging creativity and you'll have a lovely souvenir to take home with you. Ages 1 month to 5 years.
Take to the water in this fun, free pool session just for under 3’s. From singing songs to playing with inflatables, this session is a great way to introduce babies and toddlers to the joys of being in the pool.
All of our restaurants are child and baby-friendly. You’ll find plenty of space for multiple highchairs and prams, free Ella’s Kitchen baby food (subject to availability), feeding stations for warming up milk as well as indoor or outdoor play areas at some of our restaurants. Be sure to pre-book your table as early evening times are popular.
If you’d prefer a relaxing evening in, order restaurant food to be delivered to your lodge and eat in peace whilst your little one sleeps.
Splash into the Subtropical Swimming Paradise with your little one. Heated to 29.5c all year round, it’s the perfect place to introduce them to the water. Discover baby pools, sensory water play areas and our free Baby Dolphins play session. You’ll also find family changing rooms, large lockers, a buggy park and the Canopy Café and Bar serving poolside food and drink.
Top tip: hire a Family Cabana for a cosy, peaceful retreat – perfect for naptime!
Take your little one on a relaxing wander through the woodland and let them enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the forest. If you prefer to travel around on two wheels, you can hire buggy trailers from the Cycle Centre – be sure to check your resort map for the cycle routes. Stroll around the lake and spot ducklings as you go, and stop off for a coffee or lazy lunch at one of our cafes and restaurants.
Please be aware that due to the nature of the forest, not all woodland paths are suitable for prams and pushchairs.
Yes – our Crèche is suitable for little ones aged 3-24 months. Our professionally trained Ofsted/Tusla-registered childcare staff gently encourage children to learn and play in a happy, safe environment.
