Reviewed 24 May 2011

On Arriving to the Hotel we were offered irish mist while checking in.
The rooms were exellent with a bottle of wine and hand made chocolates on the table( nice touch).
The food was also exellent and the staff in the hotel could not do enough for you.
The pool filled with sea water and the jets, I stayed alot of time in, did'nt get a chance to have any treatments.

I'm givning this hetel a top review because it deserves it, and we will be back again.

We have been welcomed in a very kindly, exclusive and professional manner by a staff searching our confort and the way to ease our difficulties (our luggage had been lost during the air trip).
The spa treatment is a delicious experience. Care is taken of your person as if you were a VIP, by gifted and competent ladies. Large choice of programs including the couple's suite, ideal for a romantic wedding anniversary...
Excellent food from the simplest to the sophisticated, staff service young and efficient.
Rooms with a touch of exotism (furniture partly chinese) - Very large beds with sea view for a great sleep.
Irish coastal landscapes and seaviews from everywhere, specially from the restaurant where you enjoy breakfast/meal like if suspended above the sea (a dramatic scene by stormy wheather).
But specially, a very kind and respectfull way to take care of guests and make them fill as if they where in a friends' home, that we have very much apreciated as french and remains in our souvenir an irish savoir faire.

Just back from a very enjoyable five night stay in the apartments at Inchydoney with my wife and two small kids. It's a great hotel with real irish hospitality. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating with young children - nothing was too much trouble. The hotel facilities are excellent, great pool area, bar, lounge and restaurant and it's located right on the beach with surfing school etc. The only negatives are the pint of Guinness could be better and the apartment exteriors are in serious need of paint - first impressions when you park outside are poor, but our apartment inside was perfect... will be back.

Dear Wiklow

thank you for your review, I am happy to read that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our apartments. Thank you for all your positive comments. With regards to the exterior of the apartments, I am happy to confirm that painting started early last week and we hope to have it complete in a week or so. As you can imagine, given our location and proximity to the sea, this is something we have to look at regularly and are very aware of.

We hope to see you and your family back in Inchydoney soon.

From check in to check out we were not disappointed with this hotel. Extremely comfortable, spacious room. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice of local produce and great bar food for lunch/dinner. The Gulfstream Restaurant serves superb food. The spa was beautiful with experienced well trained staff. Two fabulous beaches with miles of sand for people who like walking and great seas for surfers. The hotel is ideally located to explore the fabulous coastline of west Cork from Clonakilty to Skibbereen, Schull, Goleen and down to Crookhaven and Barley Cove or eastwards to Kinsale. Overall this is a superb hotel with highly trained and efficient staff who are always on hand to offer help in a professional and friendly manner. Nothing is too much trouble. This hotel is not cheap to stay in but it does not disappoint on any level.

Inchydoney is standout for the following reasons, on your door access to a great beach, very good food, friendly & effective staff, Clon is a lovely town, lots of history around (Michael Collins) and lots of beautiful villages to visit. I have stayed 3 times in the apartments and it is perfect for a young family.

Room Tip: Do the train trip around Coln town

The welcome was first class, WE arrived at 2 pm and had very nice meal in the bistro. The view from the room was great and we sat out and enjoyed the sea air. Breakfast was perfect and I enjoyed the smoked salmon on homemade brown bread. We dressed for dinner and arrived at exactly the time we had booked. We were Squashed onto bench type seating, Just 6 inches between our table and a table of 3, Witch was 6 inches from the next table down. The evening promised fine dining and the food was excellent, However we were so close to the table beside us that we struggled to hear each other over the conversation of the next table. We saw several couples return to the residents lounge to wait for a table that they were prepared settle for. I would return to the hotel but would give the restaurant a very wide berth unless the seating plan was made to suit a restaurant. Really spoiled our stay. I would advise against planing romantic meal at inchydoney.

Room Tip: Don't plan on romantic meal in the restaurant

Dear Twoadultsthreekids_9

thank you for your recent review and your feedback. I was very disappointed to read that your experience was hampered by the seating plan in the Gulfstream Restaurant. I have passed on your comments to the Manager and the plan has since been altered to allow for more intimate dining.

Again, I was happy to read that you enjoyed the Inchydoney Welcome as well as the views from the rooms and breakfast. I would be delighted if you returned to Inchydoney and next time dinner will be on us.

Kind regards
