    This place is certainly a hidden gem. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with an amazing warm welcome and of course an apple liquor, this set the tone for our stay. Fantastic food (especially the breakfast and the walnut bread!), atmosphere, staff, spa facilities, location...I could go on and on. All I can say is keep doing what you are doing because it works so well, you have a great hotel and the team are all so warm and welcoming. Thank you for a briliant stay and we will definatley be back for another 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.

    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

    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.

    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. :-)
