    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
