“Excellent experience”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

I Had a two night solo stay.
I was made very welcome and enjoyed my stay.
It was very relaxing in a super location.
Reception supplied walking guides for the area.
The guide seemed to be missing a couple of pages, (All the guides were the same) which took two of the walks out of the agenda
Staff very friendly, and the hotel and the surrounding area were very clean.

Room Tip: Be careful your room is away from the snooker table (can be noisy)

My mam, sister and I stayed here for a night of relaxation and pampering. It was well needed and we definitely got what we were looking for. The staff were very friendly and helpful, our room was gorgeous, the food was lovely (what a breakfast!) and loved the sea water pool and fab treatments. Overall would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Get a seaview room if you can.... so nice!

Booked the apartments for 3 nights in May. We have a 2 year old and hotel was too confining for her. Very nice overall. Typical apartment. Clean. All mod cons. No kids TV channel working unfortunately. Location is the key. Fabulous view out onto the pristine beach. Weather can be a game changer but even then there is plenty to do. Lovely seawater pool in the hotel and clonakilty only a short drive away with very handy SuperValu for provisions. Lovely part of the world.
Would definitely recommend to those with young children as secluded and safe.

We recently took a 2 night break in your hotel and we both agreed that the customer service and attention to detail from the moment we arrived at reception to our point of departure was 'second to none' - we found the staff very welcoming,chatty and so professional. We really appreciated all the 'small touches' and most especially the food and the sea view from our room. It has certainly lived up to the many reviews we've read over the years and we are sorry we didn't visit sooner. We look forward to another stay in the future. M & B Kelly, Co. Laois.

Absolutely wonderful hotel. My fab hubby booked a night for myself , our little 9 mth old and my sister. We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by such lovely, friendly and professional staff. We were made feel so welcome. We'd to wait a very short time for the room and received complementry light refreshments. We were then taken to our room and settled in, We had dinner that evening and it was superb, a bit pricey but so tasty. We took my son down to the pool the next morning and it was fantastic. We totally enjoyed our stay and experience in the wonderful Inchydoney island lodge.

We had been looking forward to this break for ages and arrived late on the sunday evening,so we did,nt get a chance to to see the room in daylight.We went straight to the bar to order food and had to wait 45mins from the time we ordered,in the end we had to call the waiter to see what the delay was (we were,nt the only ones kept waiting)Now i appreciate that they were busy but you would imagine in such a luxury hotel they should be able to cope with being busy.The following morning we discovered that our room was very dark it had a sea view but bacisally overlooked the reception area i,m aware that we should have asked to be moved but did,nt.My advice would be when booking avoid room 204.Lovely staff, lovely beach.and very clean.
