We have been going to Inchydoney for 9 years and it still excites us whenever we return. The staff and their service is second to none and the views are forever changing. It is the most tranquil place to spend a few days away from the real World.

Room Tip: Choose the even numbers on the 3rd floor as they face the setting sun!!

Lovely atmosphere in this hotel, staff are warm and friendly, you are always greeted with a smile. Add to that great food, fabulous rooms, a stunning sea water pool and two enormous beaches-- it was hard to leave! Free WiFi, Sky Sports in rooms, all in all a most relaxing few days.

Fantastic bar food on the first night followed on the second night by one of the best meals i've ever eaten in the gulfstream restaurant. Friendly experienced staff. stunning location for strolls on the beach. If want to retreat into a hotel-land love bubble then inchadoney is the place to go.

This was our first time in Inchydoney. I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend and I wanted somewhere special. We couldn't of picked a more perfect place. From the moment we arrived we were blown away with with how friendly, and efficient the staff were. The room was amazing, with stunning views of the beach. The Staff helped with me with the planning of the whole thing to make this a romantic week to remember. Atmosphere was warm, friendly and very relaxing, The gulfstream restaurant was a pleasure to eat in. Overall, I would recommmend (in fact we already have) Inchydoney to family and friends. We hope to return soon. Such happy memories. Thank you so much to all the staff....

From the time we arrived, my wife and four children we were made very welcome from the receptionists (all excellent) to the staff in the pool, breakfast to the young girl doing the hoovering in the lobby, i've never seen customer care as good in all my travels. We enjoyed lunch at Dunes Bar & Restaurant, the manager and staff all alert and friendly....food, cant say enough.
I'm not one for writing about how our stay was but i must admit i really wanted to write and let the owners know how good their staff were and out of 10 I would give them a 12.
I have no hesitation in saying that we will be back, and i look forward to seeing your staff with big smiles - with welcome written all over their face...A big Thank You from Ruth & Des.

Room Tip: Ideal for for a family with four kids, we had the adjoining room...where you have privacy for a coup...

The Inchydoney hotel and spa is very warm and welcoming, the staff were brilliant couldn't do enough for you. The food both in the bar and restaurant was gorgeous, and the treatments speak for themselves a little piece of heaven. We will definitly return for another weekend break.

Having travelled around the world staying in luxury accommodation, Inchydoney Lodge & Spa is a home away from home. The professionalism of the staff and the warmth of the customer service makes you feel special from the moment you check in with a welcome drink.

Julie, the Manager, has always time to stop and say hello and make sure everything is of a high standard. We have been going there on family holidays twice a year for the last decade and it continues to surpass our high expectations with every visit. The food in the Dunes Bar/Restaurant is second to none.

The Spa has to be experienced whether just to relax in the seawater pool with it's various jacuzzis and water jets to relax those tired aching muscles or, sample the many treatments that Inchydoney Spa has to offer by highly-trained therapists.

We have recommneded Inchydoney Lodge & Spa to family and friends and all have come back to us with amazing experiences and booked in again for longer.

You won't be disappointed with any aspect of your stay here. They may not have control over the weather but, having to retire to the library for afternoon tea and scones or go to the spa isn't a bad option when you're looking for shelter.

This is a destination for couples and families alike. Every room has a panoramic view of the ocean. Whether it's romance, R&R or both, Inchydoney Lodge & Spa ticks all the boxes. I can't speak highly enough of the staff. They make our stays so memorable.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean-view.

I've passed on your kind words to Julie its lovely to hear such great comments about our staff, they are our biggest asset and its great to see them being recognised and praised. I will pass on your kind comments to the rest of the team.

We are very lucky in West Cork to have such an abundance of wonderful food and food suppleirs on our door step and I was delighted to read you enjoyed the food both in the Restaurant and Dunes. Chef will be delgithed with the feedback.

You are so right, our sea water pool and spa have to be experienced to be believed and I'm delighted you found them relaxing.

I very much hope we have the opportunity of welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards.
