Alan Rogers Review

A sister park to The Meadow at Glandore, the Hideaway is ideally situated as a touring base for the West Cork region. It is a well run site under the supervision of the owners and although it enjoys tranquil surroundings, including preserved marshland, it is only ten minutes walk from the busy market town of Skibbereen. The Hideaway is a two-hectare, touring only park with 60 pitches, including 50 with hardstanding and 6A electric hook-up. The remainder are for tents. Shrubs and low hedges divide the park giving an open feel overall and commanding views across the fields and hills. One long building houses reception, the toilet facilities and a games room.

The coast of West Cork is broken by a succession of picturesque estuaries and bays. The narrow Mizen Peninsula makes a dramatic drive, and the old emigrant port of Baltimore and its ferry-accessible islands is Ireland with a Breton flavour. Naturally, locally caught fresh fish is the culinary treat of choice in the region and is ever-present on menus up and down this coast, and the dairy produce of its lush emerald pastures can offer a special treat.


The modern toilet block has non-slip floors, well equipped showers (on payment). Baby room with bath. En-suite unit for disabled visitors. Laundry. Campers’ dining room. Motorcaravan services. Adventure play area. Football and cycling not permitted on the park. Electric barbecues are not permitted. WiFi on part of site.
