You can book a Center Parcs break for a three-night weekend (Friday-Monday), four-night midweek (Monday-Friday) or seven-nights (starting Monday or Friday).

Center Parcs is the perfect place for a toddler friendly holiday in Ireland and the UK – with acres of woodland for little feet to explore, hundreds of new and exciting indoor and outdoor activities designed for toddlers, and a wide variety of child-friendly restaurants and menus. Find your home-away–from-home in one of our specially designed open-plan family lodges and make family memories that will last a lifetime.
Our lodges are designed with families in mind, with plenty of space to accommodate busy little bodies - and the mountain of stuff they need! We know how stressful a family holiday with toddlers can be when hotels and other accommodation isn’t child-friendly - this is why we try to make it as easy as possible. In all of our lodges you’ll find high chairs, cots, stair gates (in two-storey lodges), and plenty of storage space.
We have a wide range of restaurants available at our villages, all of which are child-friendly. Many include baby stations (complete with microwave, bottle warmer, bowls and free baby food), special children’s menus offering healthy and tasty dishes, soft play areas with various toys and activities, and crayons and activity sheets for the table. With plenty of space for buggies and high chairs, you won’t feel squashed or uncomfortable in our restaurants.
Center Parcs is a toddler’s dream with acres of stunning woodland complete with a lake, beach and plenty of wildlife, hundreds of fun indoor and outdoor activities, and our Subtropical Swimming Paradise. All of our villages offer a variety of toddler-friendly activities to keep your little ones entertained and engaged.
Explore the great outdoors
There is plenty for toddlers to do outdoors at Center Parcs. Take a walk through the forest and explore all that nature has to offer. Keep an eye out for ducks, rabbits, deer, badgers, squirrels and more. Take a bike ride through the forest and enjoy the fresh air - our Cycle Centre offers bike buggies to hire for parents with toddlers too young to ride. Or take a bucket and spade and build sandcastles on our very own beach.
Splash around in the Subtropical Swimming Paradise
Spend a day splashing around in our Subtropical Swimming Paradise. Heated to a lovely 29.5C year-round, it includes a special toddler pool perfect for little ones who aren’t quite ready for the big pool. At the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, you’ll find a large buggy park outside for easy storage, spacious family-friendly changing areas, special baby and toddler-friendly areas, as well as towels and inflatables available for hire or purchase.
