Center Parcs Longford Forest has announced that it will reopen its Subtropical Swimming Paradise to guests from Monday, July 27.
In line with updated Government guidance, the Subtropical Swimming Paradise will reopen with new safety measures in place. The new measures are designed to track guest visits, manage occupancy and keep guests and staff safe.
The changes include advanced booking, limiting the number of guests allowed in the pool area at one time, limiting the frequency of visits allocated to guests per break and temperature checks and regulation before entry.
In addition, there will be a nominal 10c charge per person on each visit to the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, which will be donated to Center Parcs’ charity partner Barretstown.
Center Parcs is also delighted to announce the reopening of Aqua Sana Spa for guests staying at the resort from the same date.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be able to reopen our Subtropical Swimming Paradise, we know that it is such a key part of the Center Parcs experience for our guests. Rest assured we have been working hard to make the Subtropical Swimming Paradise as safe as possible for everyone and we have a great plan in place, so getting the green light to reopen feels fantastic,” CEO, Martin Dalby, commented.
Following the updated Government guidelines, Center Parcs will now be able to offer even more indoor activities, to ensure that no matter what the weather, guests will be able to choose from an unrivalled range of both indoor and outdoor activities.
Center Parcs Longford Forest is also delighted to announce that they have signed up to Fáilte Ireland’s COVID-19 Safety Charter, the Government-endorsed initiative designed to reassure employees and customers that businesses have reopened with best practice hygiene and social distancing measures in place.
To be eligible for the Fáilte Ireland Safety Charter, businesses have to meet a high standard, including ensuring all employees have been trained in COVID-19 safety and hygiene measures. All Center Parcs employees are currently undergoing a comprehensive training programme ahead of Longford Forest reopening this Monday , including training on safety measures as well as guidance for their own wellbeing and recognising and acknowledging the concerns of both colleagues and guests.
“We are thrilled to today announce our Subtropical Swimming Paradise and Aqua Sana Spa are opening from the 27th July. Failte Ireland’s COVID-19 Safety Charter provides reassurance for both our staff and guests that we are reopening our village in a safe way, while still retaining the Center Parcs experience. These have been challenging times for everyone, but we can’t wait to open our doors on Monday morning and welcome our guests back to the forest,” Center Parcs Longford Forest’s Village Director, Daragh Feighery, asserted.
