Alan Rogers Review

Top of the Rock Pod Páirc & Walking Centre is a family site located in the heart of West Cork, near the Atlantic coast and amid nine miles of beautiful walking trails in an area rich in folklore, history and culture. The working farm provides space for tents (six 6A Europlug electricity sockets and water) and a dedicated area for six camper vans (no caravans) on gravel, with full facility access. There are seven pods to rent, dispersed throughout the farm, their design inspired by early Christian structures. This beautiful rural environment includes farmland, woodland, water, flora and fauna.

The quaint West Cork market town of Clonakilty is just a 45-minute drive away: children love the Model Railway Village here, and nearby is Inchidoheny Beach. Alternatively, a 15-minute drive away is the ferry at Baltimore, where you can embark on the short crossing to Sherkin Island with three unspoilt beaches.

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.
