Welcome to Corcoran's Pod at Tig Lammax
Tig Lammax is nestled in the valley at Toames West cross, just 6km from the market town of Macroom.
Our accommodation available to book is a modern Glamping Pod known as Corcoran's Pod, after Timmy Corcoran who built the original cottage in 1901. We also have a guest room in the house but this is reserved for long-term guests - telephone Moira for information and availability.
While you are welcome for your overnight stop between Cork City and the Ring of Kerry, we are also well placed as a base for exploring all that County Cork can offer, from Midleton, Fota and Cobh in the east, to the delights of West Cork and Kerry.
We will be delighted to arrange your itinerary for a two to four-night stay (or more), making sure that you don't miss any of the main tourist opportunities of the region.
We also welcome visiting business people, especially from Danone Nutricia (5 mins away), as well as the local businesses in Coolcower and Macroom.
We are currently developing the website so please bear with us as we upload content. In the meantime, if you wish to make a booking please go to the "Booking" page.
Please note that we no longer serve food. However, we have a kitchen in the Outhouse for the use of our guests so you will be able to make your own meals.
This summer we have continued to receive lovely reviews from our guests. Here are a couple of recent pages from our guest book.
We are not perfect and there are occasionally things that we can improve upon. When guests point out areas for improvement we do our best to make it happen.
Thankfully, these occasions are rare. Thank you to all our guests in 2022. We still have some availability for this December so do check on our booking page to see available dates.
Update for 2022
After a hiatus of over two years when Corcoran's Pod was only opened for the summer months, we are now open all year once again and have been very heavily booked through 2022, so if you are thinking of booking, don't leave it too long to make up your mind.
For the summer months (May-August) we will be taking bookings for a minimum of 2 nights unless we need to fill single-night holes in the calendar. Outside of the peak period, we are happy to take single-night bookings. We very much look forward to hosting you in 2023.
Our guest room remains closed to bookings as it is occupied by a long-term guest.
Vaccines are coming!
With the arrival of vaccines, we are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to reopen fully. At the moment Corcoran's Pod is available for forward booking for the summer months and as soon as I have received 2 doses of the vaccine I will be reopening our guest room as well as reinstating breakfast and evening meal options for everyone who has a vaccination certificate.
Covid Update (July 2020)
It is with regret that we are no longer taking bookings for our Campervan and Guest Room due to the Coronavirus Covid-19. However, our Glamping Pod remains available for bookings from August 10th from countries on the "Green List" as it may be updated from time to time. Please check on the Irish Government website for local restrictions.
