We have been staying at the Lodge and Spa since 2001 and we still absolutely love it. We stayed again last week (Feb 14) and had a wonderful 3 days. The hotel is still as beautiful, the setting is heaven, and the staff, food and service are always so lovely. No matter what the season or the weather Inchydoney is always an inspiration.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have balconies and overlook the sea and the beach.

My wife and I spent two days here in February 2014, and to say we had a most enjoyable experience is a understatement. From the complimentry glass of Irish Mist on arrival to the superb food and the kind and helpful staff who were a delight and couldn't do enough for us. The seawater therapy pool and the relaxation suite with complimentry coffee,tea and orange juice was truly relaxing in every way.The second day of our stay Ireland was hit by 100mph winds and the hotel was on emergency power but everything carried on as normal. My wife and I would recommend everybody should stay here at least once to experience the fabulous location and suberb service.

Room Tip: Ocean view room with balcony

My husband and I chose Inchydoney to celebrate an important wedding anniversary with a three night break. It was a delight from start to finish. Service was impeccable, the bedroom was very comfortable, and the food was superb. We slept and woke to the sound of the ocean! The weather was very stormy but we still managed some great walks along the huge beaches and when the rain came we retreated to the splendid indoor heated seawater pool. Midweek, off-season prices represented excellent value.Highly recommended. One small warning: if you plan to read, bring a strong light bulb!

We celebrated our wedding in Inchydoney in September 2013 and could not have asked for better staff or location. People travelled from the USA, Scotland, France and the UK and everyone had nothing but compliments for the hotel. Amy was fantastic throughout the planning process and was great on the day to include sorting an issue with the florist to finding a sewing kit for an emergency dress issue! At the reception Aurelia was fantastic and the staff were just lovely. The food was amazing perhaps the best food to be served at any wedding- the standard was simply outstanding. Some guests stayed in the apartments and are currently planning their return trip!! We are looking forward to our return trip in September to celebrate our first anniversary.
