Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in Clonakilty
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 June 2014

My partner and I have stayed here twice in the last month!!! After travelling to various 4 and 5 star hotels around the country we have always felt a little disappointed, but I have to say the Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa is a class above any other hotel. From the minute you check in, to the minute you leave, you are treated like their one and only guest. It really is first class treatment. The food in the bar is to die for. Try the cheese on garlic bread, Fabulous!
The hotel is in an ideal location. It is right on the beach. My partner and I both work long hours and this really is the only hotel we find that we leave feeling completly relaxed and we are always planning a return visit. Anyone planning a relaxing, stressfree, to be treated like a king or queen for the weekend, then this really is the place.

Such a great place to stay over looking the sea, in itself a great selling point. I have stayed here several times and each time is just magnificent.

The rooms are always so comfortable and having such a view is great.

The spa is really lovely and such a great way to relax on a nice romantic weekend getaway.

The food is really great and they have an excellent wine list to offer as well. The decor of the restaurant isn't exactly to my taste but with food that good and the fact you can take your wine into the very comfortable residents lounge to relax for the evening.

Worth a trip to The English Market

Visited recently for a family celebration. We had a meal in he bar which was excellent. Notice the menu has changed and is very interesting. Great attention and service. We have been here many times and never had a ba experience. Location is one the best in Ireland and well worth a visit.

My Partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in early June. We were very impressed overall with the hotel / rooms / facilites and location. From start to finish, we were looked after by amazing staff. The scenery is just perfect, yards from a beautiful beach which attracts some daring surfers. We dined in the restaurant on 1 evening, and can highly recommend the fare of 5 courses @ E59.
Great room, great sleep, and a balcony overlooking the Atlantic and aforementioned beach - WOW! Will be back soon.

Room Tip: Choose superior room- great comfort.

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!
