My girlfriend and I stayed at Inchydoney Lodge and Spa for one perfect night, it was the venue I chose to propose to my girlfriend of 6 years, as it was the setting of one of our first dates. We didn't tell the staff at the hotel, as we wanted to keep it private, but they still managed to treat us like they knew how important our time there was for us. On several occasions we had nice chats with the staff just in passing and we found everyone very helpful and polite. The food in the restaurant, and breakfast the next morning was of very high standard. The rooms and general hotel decor was not the usual for hotels and we were impressed. The spa was very clean and we left feeling relaxed. I'm sure we will be back to visit again, maybe for a wedding anniversary! Well done to the staff and management, great job!
Loved the place, very friendly staff, clean and beautiful view of the ocean from our room. The breakfast was very good, there are many selections that you can choose. The pool and amenities are very good too.
we shall return as expectations were well and truly met, Service was outstanding in all areas from reception to the bar, Dunes and Spa. Thanks again

Great Stay. Lovely touch to have 'Happy Birthday' Treat on arrival.
Amazing experience , worth every penny , truly unique !
We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at Inchydoney, the room was well serviced, the beds very comfortable and the staff friendly and very obliging.
Lovely hotel, the staff were excellent. Dinner was superb and the live music in the bar was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay.
5 star service!
Once of the best hotels I've ever stayed in . Attention to detail on the little things from welcome drink, to chocolates in the room every evening. People always happy to help. We had a surprise party for my cousin, and you couldn't have done enough to help.
All the staff at Inchydoney made us feel relaxed. We had a surprise party for my wife in Dunes Bistro and all the staff made it a very memorable evening, going above and beyond the call of duty on several occasions. Clodagh is a fine events manager and certainly covers all bases. I certainly would recommend Inchydoney to anyone thinking of having a party of some sort or even just for a relaxing getaway. It's still my favourite location to stay in Ireland. Simply Superb.
Excellent staff especially Ben, gorgeous setting, great atmosphere with plenty of luxury
Fantastic stay, excellent service, very friendly staff. Enjoyed every moment and looking forward to returning soon.
I have never met a friendlier team than the staff at Inchydoney. Gorgeous place, lovely staff, wonderful location - after two days I felt like I had been away for weeks.
Stayed in room 416, absolutely fab. Food was excellent too. Very impressed
Fabulous. Sooooo relaxing

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.

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.
