Ring of Cork Fam Trip To Inch Hideaway

Inch Hideaway, Glanturkin, Whitegate, Co. Cork

Eager to experience something unique and exciting on their door step, Ring Of Cork members headed on a familiarisation trip to Inch Hideaway on Sunday April 28th. Inch Hideaway is an eco-sustainable camp site that has an assortment of ‘glamping’ accommodation, with everything from a Wanderly Wagon to a Sunset Yurt.

Inch Hideaway is not your traditional accommodation with luxuries galore.  It is rustic and homely and everything has its own story to tell. As Colleen, founder of Inch Hideaway, brought us on the interesting and insightful tour, she shared how many of the sights’ features were up-cycled to create something beautiful. Not only did many of the yurts feature a wood burning stove, but one of the yurts even featured an antique bed from the 1920’s! The yurts were cosy and inviting and provided a perfect setting for family adventures, romantic getaways or even weekends away with friends.

Our tour started off with a visit to the Wanderly Wagon, an old school bus converted into a stylish and quirky place to spend the night! Next we visited a traditional ‘Mongolian Yurt’ that featured bright and cosy interiors with plenty of space and comfy beds. This yurt was created and designed in traditional Mongolian fashion – not your average overnight accommodation! We also got to experience the Sunset Yurt and the Woodland Yurt, all catering to varying needs in an eccentric fashion.

As our tour progressed we also got the privilege of meeting Tiger the greyhound, Gary the Shetland pony and last but not least Doris the pig and in-house compost machine! All these furry friends and longstanding members of the Inch Hideaway team added greatly to the charm of Inch Hideaway and all is has to offer.

Inch Hideaway is the perfect place to take some time of out a busy schedule and sit back and relax while enjoying some delicious food, great company and beautiful surroundings. Kids enjoyed the space and freedom to explore the surroundings, bounce on the trampoline, kick around a soccer ball and even try out a Narnia style secret entrance. All the while the adults got to kick back and relax around the fire pit, enjoying fresh air and fantastic homemade pizzas, cooked up by Fabrizio straight from the wood fired pizza oven! Not only this but we also got to enjoy some delicious and refreshing water sourced from Inch Hideaway’s very own well. Tucked away in the countryside it was easy to forget we were within walking distance of Inch Beach, and just a quick 15 minute drive from Midleton.

Thank you to Colleen, Fabrizio and all the team at Inch Hideaway for providing us with plenty of food, fun and information on our visit. And of course thank you to our members who attended – it was a trip that was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
