Welcome to Tig Lammax
Your home from home Bed & breakfast accommodation in the heart of the Lee Valley
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 in the west.
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 opportunites 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 now in cool, wet and windy winter weather but this has not deterred our hardy Pod guests who have had great stays. Here are two photos taken from the doorway of the Pod showing some of the newly planted garden.

Summer is Here
There is a saying here - "It never rains but it pours". Well, unusally for Ireland, it hasn't rained more than a couple of light dampenings for 3 or 4 weeks now and the garden is showing the signs. We ran out of our saved rain water some time ago and are trying to conserve the water from our well by using "brown water" - that is already used water - for essential garden watering. All this means that our guests have been able to enjoy unprecedented good weather for their holidays. Thus another saying - "Every cloud has a silver lining" :).

Summer is Coming
The miserable winter has now passed and we are looking forward to a fine summer. Tig Lammax's garden had received a wonderful makeover this year with new shrubberies and a small copse of trees planted directly in the eyeline from Corcoran's Pod. I think Timmy Corcoran, the man who built the property in 1901, would be pleased with what we have done. There is now a pathway all around the garden as well as a paved path from the Pod all the way to the Outhouse. The area behind the house has been turned into a patio and the ground directly in front of the Pod has now been leveled and covered in gravel beyond which are new flower beds.
