My husband and I recently spent 4 days in Inchydoney, our first holiday alone together in about 19 years. We could not have chosen a better place for our break. From the moment we arrived at the hotel the friendliness of the staff just allowed us to relax completely. From the welcoming glass or Irish Mist to the parting gift of a pot of jam everything was just perfect. The room was lovely, the views amazing, the spa was great especially the heated seawater pool. But certainly the genuine friendliness of the staff is what makes this hotel stand out. We will be back

Fabulously relaxing hotel in gorgeous sunshine. Helpful staff, beautiful breakfast. Lovely areas to relax in. Spa area offered great deals & nice treatments with fantastic views. Could improve WiFi in some areas. Will definitely return to this hotel!

I recently had the pleasure of staying in this amazing hotel. I have stayed in a lot of beautiful hotels around the world. But i have never before stayed in a hotel where i was made feel so welcome and so at home. The Hotel is a credit to its owners and especially to its hard working staff. I have never before had such good hospitality. The food was amazing local produce at its best and the attention to detail was amazing throughout. the little touches like being handed refreshment the minute you walk in the door to the little handmade chocolates on your bed at night with the weather report for the next day and on leaving to be given homemade jam to be brought home. My only problem was having to leave. Great job Inchidoney made me proud to be Irish.

Room Tip: they are all good

Well if you want genuine comfort, a warm welcome, outstanding efficiency you need to stay here!
I have never experienced such helpful friendly staff anywhere! Everyone we dealt with were so nice. Always happy, smiling, offering to help - just exceptional! I imagine that there is great job satisfaction in this hotel. Well Done as it really shows in the staff.

We were there for a family gathering and a big group and everyone of us had the same to say. Keep up the good work! you are a role model for Irish Hotels and we will definitely be returning.

Food - delicious throughout our stay & what a selection & very generous each time.
Entertainment - super
Spa facilities - Wow!

Entire environment - clinically clean!

Room Tip: Again the large group were scattered throughout the Hotel and everyone was extremely comfortable so it depends on what you need - I am 100% certain if you outline your requirements, the experts in the Hotel will see to it without fail.
