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.

July Covid-19 Update

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.

May Covid-19 Update

With the arrival of the pandemic, I have had to rethink our hospitality. For the foreseeable future, our guest rooms in the house are closed. Existing bookings will be accommodated in Corcoran's Pod.  Corcoran's Pod and our Campervan will still be available to book as and when the government allows (currently July 20th) but we will no longer be serving any meals. All this is to ensure that the house remains a safe place for me. I do look forward to being able to welcome you once more to Tig Lammax.

Covid-19 Update

With the worldwide disruption to travel caused by the Covid-19 virus we have closed our Guest Room to new bookings until May, however Corcoran's Pod will remain open to new bookings.

We are taking every precaution to avoid spreading the virus and we are asking all guest to cooperate by reading the safety notices, washing hands frequently and using the provided hand sanitiser. Hopefully you  and I will both come through this fit and well.

Autumn 2019

The summer rush is over, We have had our own holiday and now we are reviewing the long summer season. Looking through our three guest books (one each for the Pod, Guest Room and Campervan) there are some beautiful comments. I have put the last pages of each book on our Testimonials page. We are looking forward to welcoming guests Corcoran's Pod and the Guest Room throughout the winter months.

Winter Again

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.

Winter Blog

Despite the cold weather, bookings for Corcoran's Pod have been at a record high for the month of February. It's no surprise because the Pod is warm and cosy and now has a new outlook as we had our garden redesigned by landscaper Ger O'Sullivan in January. We continue to receive wonderful comments from our guests. For example, Aym, Karine and William from Ballincollig wrote "For a first time in a pod, we had a great time! As cosy as it is funky, that's one experience we will be looking to repeat. Thanks for everything!". Bernat, Yago, Ivo and Lola from Barcelona wrote: "Thank you for everything. Your Pod is so cute and comfortable."

Tig Lammax in Snow

We have had light show in the last couple of days, covering up our newly planted garden (thanks Ger O'Sullivan for all the hard work).
