We selected these companies as they share a similar ethos to Center Parcs – they value customer service and quality. Our chosen suppliers carry the Board Bia Origin Green accreditation and this was a real re-assurance to us that we can deliver on the provenance and high quality that Irish families naturally expect of their food and dining experiences.”
