Center Parcs has secured planning permission for the construction of a new €233M village in Ireland.

The project — to be called Center Parks Longford Forest — will include 470 lodges accommodating 2,500 guests, 30 apartments, more than 100 indoor and outdoor family activities, and restaurants and shops.

It will also include an Aqua Sana Spa and a Subtropical Swimming Paradise.

Center Parcs’ CEO Martin Dalby said: “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.

“We have experienced unrivalled success for almost 30 years in the UK, providing high-quality family short breaks and I’m extremely excited by the prospect of taking our fantastic brand to Ireland.”

The village — to be located near Ballymahon in County Longford — is expected to create 750 jobs during construction and 1,000 permanent jobs once completed. The project is scheduled for completion in 2019.
