We are the third generation of Rosses to live here at the Top of the Rock. We look out on an ever-changing vista of mountain, cloud and sunshine. This ancient meeting place has once again come alive with the sound of families taking time to be together.

Our Pod Páirc is a safe and homely place for your family holiday or weekend away. It is also a perfect venue for couples with miles of walkways and river banks to wander along. Larger walking groups also come to avail of our group rates and wonderful facilities. Often people just come solo to take time out on their own. For the adventure enthusiast, there is walking, cycling and cross country running in the challenging landscape surrounding us. Our working cattle farm with its sheep, hens and ducks is a hive of interest for young and old alike, and you will enjoy meeting our dog “Daisy”.

Opened in 2014, our Podpàirc was the first of its kind in Ireland. We have eight pods with different levels of comfort and space to suit your particular needs.

Our pods were originally designed by UK engineer Ian Bone who was inspired by early Christian structures such as the Gallarus Oratory beyond Dingle, Co Kerry many years ago. Now built in Co Kerry to a high standard, the pods really resonate with our landscape, as you will observe in the slideshow above. They provide a clean, comfortable and cost-effective break where you can be as close to the elements as possible while still enjoying the comforts of heat, light and a decent bed.
