Summer is coming...

Posted 24 June 2024 Last updated 8 July 2024

Over the past couple of years we have experienced some very high temperatures which is great for exploring the forest. However, extreme weather does bring some safety and operational challenges. At Center Parcs we assess the weather forecast on a daily basis to plan and ensure our staff and guests are as safe as possible. We listen to official advice but we also consider local weather and conditions for each of our locations. We’re in a forest setting so heat can be a concern, we look at how dry the forest is and sometimes we have to change things to reduce any risks.

Below are some hints & tips and advice, along with some of the changes we may need to put in place if things get too warm:

Barbecues  - as mentioned above, we will listen to local advice and assess individual conditions. If we do experience long dry periods we may need to introduce a barbecue ban. If we do this, we’ll text any guests impacted before they arrive so that they can plan around this.

Fires – please do not start any fires no matter how small, this can be temping with children, but this isn’t safe in our forest environment as small fires can spread very quickly. If you see a fire in the forest, please let our team know as soon as possible.  

Keeping everyone safe will always be our priority and we patrol our forests on a regular basis. Please note that, if guests are found to intentionally start a forest fire, they’ll be asked to leave the resort.

Outdoor activities & pool areas – it is great to be outside in the sunshine but in previous years it has been too hot for our staff and guests to safely enjoy some activities. Again, we will assess locations and conditions individually and only cancel activities if we feel it is unsafe to go ahead.

Restaurants – as you can imagine, kitchens areas can get very hot in excessive heat and in extreme situations we may need to change opening times or reduce our menus.

Hydration – it may seem obvious but staying hydrated is essential during the heat. Remember drinks for the journey and all of our lodges have fridges to keep things cool. We have Water Refill stations on all our resorts. You’ll also have a small freezer for ice cream and ice!

Sun protection – another obvious one but it is important to protect yourself and your family in the sun so don’t forget to bring lots of sunscreen. We do sell a small selection in ParcMarket if you do forget.

Closing curtains/ moderating lodge temperature – we recommend keeping curtains closed during the day, particularly bedroom curtains, as it can significantly help in moderating the temperature within your lodge amidst warm weather conditions.

Fans – our lodges are not air conditioned so if you have a fan at home it might be a good idea to bring it along.

Update to Cancellation Policy

Posted 24 June 2024

There is a change to our cancellation policy which will come into effect for guests who are on resort from 9th September 2024 onwards.

From the 9th September 2024 you can cancel activity, restaurant and spa bookings up to 12 hours before the start time to receive a full refund. If you cancel within 12 hours of the start time, a 50% cancellation charge will apply.

Please see full terms and conditions for more information.

New developments at Center Parcs Longford Forest

Posted 6 June 2024

We’re excited to announce that planning permission has been granted for a €100m development at Center Parcs Longford Forest.

Since its opening five years ago, the village has gone from strength to strength with great feedback from the many families who have visited since we opened in 2019, and the planned extension will allow us to bring Center Parcs to even more families in Ireland.

We’re planning to:

  • Build 198 new lodges, including four luxurious Treehouses
  • Add a new restaurant and Coffee House
  • Extend our existing leisure facilities and add more car parking spaces
  • Extend the Subtropical Swimming Paradise
  • Expand our award-winning Aqua Sana to include new treatment rooms and a brand-new Treetop Sauna, bringing our incredible spa experiences to new heights

As with everything we do, sustainability will be at the forefront of our plans and we’ll be introducing air source heat pumps, high efficiency LED lighting and solar power to reduce the environmental impact of our accommodation and central buildings.

We’ll be working on the extension in stages to minimise any disruption to our guests’ breaks, with works starting in September 2024. We don't have the full detail of our starting plans just yet but, as with all our development projects, we will work hard to minimise disruption during this work. We'll keep guests updated with our plans and progress via this news page.

Treehouse in the forest

Treehouses are coming to Longford

Last updated 15 June 2021

We’ve announced our intention to submit a planning application to further develop Center Parcs Longford Forest

Building on the success of the resort since opening in July 2019, we’re now planning to increase the number of lodges and expand some of the existing facilities.

The plans include the addition of 200 new lodges, including four of our most luxurious accommodation type - Treehouses. Hidden away within the heart of the forest, each Treehouse sleeps up to eight people and comes complete with a games den, outdoor hot tub, private parking and a dedicated Treehouse Host for the duration of the break.

Alongside the plans to increase the number of lodges, we’re also proposing to extend existing facilities, including leisure facilities, restaurants and cafés, back of house facilities, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise and Aqua Sana Spa.

The development will remain within the existing site boundary and is estimated to create around 300 jobs during construction and a further 250 permanent jobs once operational.

We will now begin detailed design and site survey work, as well as a programme of community engagement, before submitting a planning application, with a target date of the end of 2021 for the submission.
