So we were interested to hear that Center Parcs teamed up with internationally renowned Lego artists, mother and son duo Jessica and Faolán Farrell from Rathangan, Co. Kildare, to create a show-stopping LEGO replica of the Subtropical Swimming Paradise.

The 2m x 1.5m LEGO model, which took 105 days to build using 55,667 LEGO bricks, showcases all that the swimming paradise at the new forest resort will offer families when it opens its doors in 2019.

The pool complex, which will be Ireland’s first ever Subtropical Swimming Paradise, will be heated to 29.5oC all year round and surrounded by tropical plants.

Jessica Farrell explains that her love of LEGO began when she was just four years old. She says, “When I was asked by Center Parcs to collaborate on something so exciting, and to do so with my own son, Faolán, I jumped at the chance.” 55,667 bricks and 840 hours later, it’s the arrival of the Subtropical Swimming Paradise in LEGO form.

Unfortunately at the moment members of the public can’t go visit this amazing model but this may change and we’ll let you know if and when it is available for view.

Well done to Jessica and Faolán, we think you’re a LEGO-tastic mum/son combo!
