Alan Rogers Review

This family site is located in the heart of West Cork, near Ireland’s Atlantic coast amid nine miles of beautiful walking trails in an area rich in folklore, history and culture. The working farm provides a space to pitch tents (six 6A Europlug electricity sockets and water) and a purpose-built quarter of an acre for six camper vans (no caravans), on gravel, with full access to facilities. There are seven pods to rent, dispersed throughout the farm, their design inspired by early Christian structures. A well-placed centre to explore a beautiful rural environment of farmland, woodland, water, flora and fauna.

Run by the third generation of the Ross family to live and organically farm at Top of the Rock, Pod Pairc is the first of its kind in Ireland. The pods have different levels of space and comfort according to your needs. Walks are organised around themes including nature, cooking, Pilgrim and poetic and the site is well placed to take advantage of the festivals and events which take place annually in West Cork. The site contains a modern purpose-built walking centre for families, couples and groups to access the Drimoleague Heritage Walkways.
