At the heart of every Center Parcs break is our incredible Subtropical Swimming Paradise, Ireland's largest indoor water park. Heated to 29.5C all year round and decked in lush green tropical plants and trees, it’s positively balmy.
With Subtropical Swimming Paradise entry included in the cost of your break, you can simply turn up in order take a dip in our wave pool, tackle the Wild Water Rapids, make a splash in the water play areas or relax in our whirlpools. For the ultimate relaxation, you can hire a private Family Cabana, complete with TV, refreshments and loungers.
Open daily from 10am - 9pm. Opening times may vary during the Christmas period. From time to time, we may have to restrict entry for your safety if we reach capacity during busier times.
