Today marks an exciting day for Center Parcs. Planning permission for our first Village in Ireland has just been granted and we’re more than thrilled! So to spread the excitement, here’s a reminder of what to expect from Center Parcs Longford Forest, due in 2019…
Center Parcs Longford Forest will become our sixth Village and the first one outside of England. The new Village will follow in the footsteps of our five popular UK Villages and will include the same high quality features.
The plans for the Village are to transform a 395-acre site near Ballymahon in County Longford, offering accommodation for up to 2,500 each break. The new Village will incorporate features from all our five UK Villages including 470 Lodges, 30 apartments, more than 100 indoor and outdoor activities, an Aqua Sana spa, a range of restaurants and shops and, just like every Center Parcs Village, the famous Subtropical Swimming Paradise.
CEO of Center Parcs Martin Dalby said: “Today’s announcement marks another significant milestone in the history of Center Parcs. Since we announced our intention to bring the Center Parcs experience to Ireland last year, we have been overwhelmed by the support we have received, both at local and national level.”
The creation of the new Village is exciting for all and will provide a boost to the local economy. Longford Forest will see around 750 new jobs being created during the construction and a further 1,000 permanent jobs once the Village has opened.
Center Parcs Longford Forest is expected to open its doors in 2019. But don’t worry, we’ll keep you updated along the way on our exciting journey to Ireland!
