At the heart of every Center Parcs break, is our incredible water park, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, heated to 29.5C all year round and decked in lush green tropical plants and trees, it’s positively balmy.
Access to the Subtropical Swimming Paradise during your break is through a pre-booking system only so be sure to pre-book and secure your place to take a dip in the pool, tackle the Wild Water Rapids, relax in our whirlpools and enjoy our exhilarating rides and slides.
You can pre-book your slot from 4 weeks before you arrive.
Subtropical Swimming Paradise
We are delighted that the Subtropical Swimming Paradise is now open.
Just like many other businesses in these times, we will have to track guest visits and manage the number of people using the pool, rides, and slides. Below are the key changes:
Advance booking is required to ensure everyone has the opportunity to visit and be socially distant in all areas inside
A limited number of guests are allowed at any one time and a maximum number of sessions per break:
Two x 2-hour sessions per three or four-night break
Four x 2-hour sessions per seven-night break
Arrive 15 minutes before your booked session with your swimwear on underneath your clothes
Temperature checks will be in place on arrival to protect our colleagues and guests
Most of our rides and slides including the Wild Water Rapids will be available. To help maintain social distancing our wave machines won’t be in operation
There will be a small charge of 10c per person per session, which will be donated to Barretstown
Showers and dryers won’t be available at the end of your session
Our rides and slides

Rides and slides vary at each village but you're guaranteed twists, turns and drops on each one. Rides and slides are available throughout all pool booking times.
Children's water play areas
Let your little ones dip their toes in our water play areas with little slides, spray fountains and a splashing pool for the little ones and for older children a family water play area with fun slides, giant tipping buckets and more if they're a little more confident in the water.
Ireland’s largest indoor water park, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise is full of fun for the whole family. With our Wild Water Rapids, 350m of exhilarating rides and slides and children’s water play areas.
