Anybody been to Centreparcs Ireland?

Any use?  Expensive?

I booked 4 days in it this summer.
I'm told it's very good, the reviews are very good and the pictures on the site look very good.
Expensive, yes indeed. Check out the price of bike hire on their site, adult bike was 50euro a day with kids 30euro I think it was! There are 8 of us going....280euro to hire out bikes for a day.
The wasps are all unionised so it does add up.

If you've a family of 8 then your bate, but I've been able to carry 4 bikes (family of 4 that went) and no issues, If you can afford to go the Centreparcs you can afford to rent them

Child is off for a week end of May so I priced up the Mon-Fri for 2A2C (one baby so wouldn't be charged and one four year old) and it was coming up 800E just for the accommodation. By the time you add what you would spend on getting there, food, drink, activities you would be safer going abroad for a week all inclusive. And that was only for four nights, not the week.

The holiday costs we need. Gone are the days of a wet weekend in Bundoran. We're back!
