enjoyed my stay in inchydoney, service was top class,food excellent rooms spacious and very clean, views breathtaking,reception very very good will definitely will go back next summer
Stunning location, wonderful spa, helpful and friendly staff, ate in the dunes bar/bistro - good selection of drinks and food (generous portions). Very relaxing stay and a complimentary gift on check out which was a lovely gesture. Simply loved it and look forward to a return visit.
We first saw Inchydoney Lodge and spa 17 years ago, on a visit to the beach. We were on a family holiday with 4 small children, on a very limited budget, but agreed to come back at some point in the future. So, you see, with 17 years of anticipation, our expectations were high! Was Inchydoney Lodge and Spa able to deliver? Not only were our expectations met, they were exceeded and then some. The service was impeccable, every member of staff we encountered greeted us with a smile, nothing was too much trouble. We treated ourselves to a superior view room, watched the sun set from our balcony. We slept on our sumptuous bed, with the door ajar, lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean and the fragrance if the lovely Elemis pillow spray. We ate in both the restaurant and the bar, the food in both was fabulous, service amazing. Breakfast on each of our 4 mornings was perfect, with staff speedily clearing the tables by the windows to give everyone a fantastic view of the ocean. Highlights of dining were full Irish (particularly scrambled eggs, sausages and mackerel); dinner (5 courses) delicious chicken, potato gateau(yum)! In the bar, beef sandwiches were very good. We had a spa treatment each (Indian head massage and back and shoulder) - excellent. We used the spa pool several times (lovely soft skin now). We spent a couple of evenings in the lounge playing chess and had an evening out in Clonakilty, really lovely. Admittedly, Inchydoney Lodge and Spa has a huge advantage due to its location on what must be one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe (we always remembered it as the 'Bahamas beach' - white sand, clear water), but without the amazing service and superb spa and restaurant, it would have been less impressive. Thanks for fulfilling our very high expectations, we booked for this time next year as we left. Looking forward to it already.
Hi there, Thank you so much for an amazing review. We are really thrilled to read that your stay lived up to those expectations! I am so glad to read that you are not leaving it as long this time to return! See you next year, Des O'Dowd Proprietor
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Our room 319 was fantastic and we really appreciated the anniversary gift. The food at the breakfasts were delicious and our evening meal was one of the best we have had in a hotel. Well done to everyone.
Lovely place , will definitely visit again , big plus that the apartments allow dogs
Fantastic stay, beautiful room with balcony overlooking the bay. Food delicious. Staff wonderful. Little touches like fresh fruit and juices in the leisure area really make a difference. Will be back.
Had a wonderful night here can't wait to return!
We had a beautiful holiday with you hotel was very clean and comfortable, Staff were 100% and the food in both restaurants were very enjoyable. Its the 1st holiday we have been on for a long time that we both said we would go back too.
Fantastic Hotel, Warm Friendly Staff and Excellent Food.
It is time to check out but we don't want to leave. We have had a wonderful 3 days & nights in this fantastic setting. The hotel has a marvellous feeling of calm & relaxation. We enjoyed enjoyed the best of local food produce in the Dunes bar & a superb meal in the Gulfstream restaurant where the presentation & flavours were 5 star . The wine list is short but excellent selection. We loved the pool & Thalassotherapy centre. I had the Mediterranean Experience with Deirdre who is an excellent masseuse & a lovely person
Hi Deborah Thanks so much for the lovely feedback! Sounds like you had a great time. I will pass on the great comments to everyone here and especially Deirdre. She will be delighted. Hope to see you back again soon Des O'Dowd Proprietor
The hotel is superb. It is in a beautiful location, everything is spotlessly clean and all of the staff are really friendly. The view from our 3rd floor room was fantastic. The breakfasts are excellent. We really enjoyed our stay which was to celebrate our Silver Wedding anniversary and we will definitely come back
We had a wonderful 2 day break in Inchadoney. THe location and the hotel itself are just beautiful. The staff were all lovely.
Excellent from start to finish
Fantastic hotel with outstanding food, enjoyed a very relaxing spa treatment, the view from our terrace was amazing, room was beautiful, only complaint would be the wifi was slow and the tv reception was poor in dunes bar and room, definitely be back.
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at very friendly staff and an amazing spa
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sorry that we could not have stayed longer. Service was excellent. Accommodation was excellent. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Food was delicious! Cannot wait to stay again.
The staff were excellent. All staff were tuned in to guests needs and very very accommodating. No request was too much and all requests were greeted with a cheeriness and genuine wish to oblidge. Highly recommended. Great staff.
We really enjoyed our stay at Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa; we were warmly welcomed upon arrival. Our room was luxurious and spacious. The spa treatments and facilities were excellent - we are already looking forward to our next visit!
The staff of this Hotel are among the best that I've ever dealt with. they were courteous and genuinely seemed interested in making the stay as good as possible. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone who asked or otherwise
We were here 8 yrs ago and delighted to be back. Excellent facilities and a great spot. Staff are friendly and efficient and rooms very comfortable. Hopefully not so long before a return stay.
I thoroughly enjoyed my short stay at Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa. The rooms are a good size and well appointed and guest facilities are excellent. All food outlets are of a high standard but prices are reasonable. The spa facilities are excellent and I am only sorry we were not there longer as I would have loved the time to walk around the cliffs and beach. A most enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend this property.
We arrived on Sunday at 1pm and left today at 12noon. Every moment we spent there we enjoyed. The breakfast was unreal and the hot food on the menu was the best I have ever eaten. The staff in all areas of the Hotel were friendly helpful and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We used the beautiful spa and the girls there were very professional the treatments we had were fantastic. The sea water heated pool with all the different jets ect was so therapeutic and brillant for skin. All in all I will definitely go back.
Thank you, we had a great stay, shame it was only one night whilst touring! The Room was ideal & with the addition of the Balcony a delight! The views over the beaches were to dream about. A great Hotel, great food & excellent service. An hotel not to miss.
very nice , best hotel that we have stayed in In Ireland over the the last 10 years
Excellent location. Friendly staff. Very good food. Well-appointed clean rooms. Lovely array of artefacts throughout the hotel.
Inchydoney was a perfect getaway to kick off our honeymoon. We stayed 3 nights, took advantage of the delicious full Irish breakfast, and enjoyed the pub in the lodge for dinner. We were both able to experience the ocean first hand and the views were spectacular. The staff was very helpful and nice when we needed anything. Should we ever travel to Ireland again, this would be a must stop especially once we have children.
Fabulous stay, all the staff were extremely helpful and any extra request they were more than helpful to accommodate. I surprised my boyfriend for his 30th birthday with a one night mid week stay, the salt water pool was one of our favourite amenities. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for an amazing place to stay.
Myself, my wife and 2 young boys really enjoyed our 4 days here. The staff could not do enough for us and the whole place is spotlessly clean. Location is excellent. We will for sure come back again, just a great few days. The surf and Turf in Dunes is amazing. Dont leave without trying it. :-)
A little piece of heaven.Lovely hotel,friendly staff.Great stay.
This is a great resort in a beautiful location. The thing that impressed me the most was the service given by the wonderful staff working at all times to ensure that each individual visitor is looked after perfectly. They all smile constantly and are more than helpful. Highly recommended & I will most definitely revisit.
Perfect on every visit ,can't fault anything as usual,looking forward to next visit
Wonderful stay with lovely staff Thanks
We had a wonderful and were very well looked after. A suggestion a range of different seating in particular in the bedrooms as the chairs in our room are very low and no arms to assist us in getting up from them
It was fantastic from start to finish, the rooms were clean and very comfortable with a complimentary bottle of water, Nespresso coffee and bathrobes. The staff were so helpful and friendly and the breakfast was wonderful.
Fantastic location. Wonderful breakfast and I had a lovely spa experience with Jenny with whom I had my best ever treatment! We would return in a heartbeat
Copy of my TripAdvisor Review... I was privileged to spend 5 gloriously relaxing days at Inchydoney Hotel and Spa. First impressions can make or break a holiday and it was that first impression of stepping out of the car, looking at the beautiful unspoilt beach with the Atlantic waves rolling in and then going in to the foyer of a spotlessly clean hotel to be met by a very friendly young woman called Kellie who invited us to have a seat and a drink whilst reception checked that our room was ready that set the tone for the rest of our stay. The high standards both of friendliness and cleanliness were replicated throughout the hotel. The room contained both a very large double bed and a single bed and both were comfortable though firm. There was an Nespresso in the room however when I mentioned at breakfast that I missed a kettle for tea Joyce (the young woman who looked after us at breakfast) said she would sort that out – she did – when we went back to the room there was a kettle! There was also a fridge in the room which could be used to keep fresh milk etc. Breakfast was a veritable feast with both hot and cold buffet plus assorted items you could order of the menu; fruit and cereal was in plentiful supply and I developed a weakness for the mini chocolate muffins, whereas my friend thoroughly enjoyed the walnut bread. Joyce was both friendly and helpful and always cheerful, indeed throughout the hotel we found that all staff were pleasant and friendly and nothing appeared to be too much bother for them. Food in the Dunes bar as well as in the guest lounge was excellent and the menu was rich and varied however I did miss some more plain food and was disappointed that Sunday lunch did not contain at least one traditional dish. Preferring plain food meant that we did not dine in the main restaurant which was the only slight negative of our experience. A major plus was that each evening someone called at your room to see if you needed any extras i.e. water, towels etc plus you were given a delicious cream chocolate. I came away from Inchydoney with lovely memories of beautiful surroundings, comfortable accommodation and staff who appeared to genuinely to want to make your stay memorable. My only question was how such a splendid hotel was a 4* when it offered a 5* experience. My only wish is that management of some of the other 4* hotels I have visited recently would spend a few days at Inchydoney and see how it should be done
What a wonderful friendly place to relax.the staff were exceptional as was the lodge itself .as for the area I don't think a nicer place to stay could be found .wed absolutely loved it and with any luck be returning as much as we can
Why this hotel isn't 5 star I don't know. Great staff, great food, 1st class entertainment sat night, superb location and nice rooms. Couldn't have asked for more.
Wonderful friendly staff that go out of their way to make your stay so enjoyable.
Lovely staff. Food in Dunnes bar was amazing. I had a deep muscle massage and it really took all the stress out of me. I would have gotten into the pool sooner if I had known it was going to be so refreshing. The room was clean and a nice touch was there was chocolate on our pillows before bedtime!
As a returning guest I had high expectations for this visit albeit that it is Sven years since my previous visit. I was not disappointed, the welcome at reception was exceptional. Although we had booked an apartment and not a room in the hotel all the staff that helped us in the spa, residents lounge, reception and dunes bar treated us very well and were very helpful. I will definitely be returning and hope not to leave it so long this time.
Superb location, lovely staff and will definitely be back!
My wife and I stayed in your fabulous hotel this weekend. We had an amazing time. The hotel team, room, facilities, setting and food were all outstanding. In particular guest manager Julie was super helpful, friendly and extremely professional. We have stayed before and will definitely be back. A huge thank you to all the team
Lovely hotel, friendly and helpful staff.
It was the best stay I have ever had the staff so helpful and friendly The most relaxing holiday yet I would give it 10 out of 10 would highly recommend it
Probably the best hotel I've stayed at in Ireland. The room was great, the surroundings spectacular, the restaurant excellent. The staff, however, were exceptional. Really friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.
Very friendly staff,excellent accommodation ,food was first class
Had the most relaxing stay, staff couldn't do enough and the food was outstanding, will definitely be back
Beautiful hotel in a very special place. Excellent food and better service. Staff from the reception team to the girls cleaning the rooms - which were spotless- extremely friendly and helpful. Very comfortable with fantastic views from every room. Will definitely be back.
