Wedding Reviews

Lisa & David - October 2018

From our first point of contact I knew our day was going to be in the best of hands but you really went above and beyond for us and nothing was ever too much. That applies to every staff member of Inchydoney! The service, friendliness and level of professionalism and perfection is 5 star. Inchydoney is a spectacular venue, from the incredible bridal suites to the magnificent views and the reception room. I can’t get it all into one email! Then having you as our wedding planner made it! We really can’t thank you enough.

Emma & Colm - September 2018

I just wanted to write quick note to thank you for everything for our wedding. Everyone is still raving about the food and service they got! You were such a great help throughout the whole lot and I really did appreciate it! The weekend was amazing from start to finish

Helen & Howie - September 2018

My husband and I are beach people so Inchydoney for us was absolutely amazing. The first time I showed my husband Inchydoney he was totally sold on getting married here. We live in America, but West Cork is always going to be home to me, & coming home to get married was a dream come true. Nicola made this long distance wedding planning so easy. She assured me in each of my gazillion emails that this is what they do and not to worry about a thing. She returned our emails immediately, she answered all our concerns, she worked with our guests endlessly, and overall Nicola and the staff at Inchydoney gave us and our guests one of the best weddings and venues ever. Forty of our guests were from the US (most of them their first time in Ireland)and everyone of them raved about Inchydoney and look forward to going back there on their next trip. I don't think there are enough words to say how happy and overwhelmed we were with everything that they all did for us on our wedding day. If you want to be treated like royalty and have the perfect wedding with the most precious memories?....Then you have to choose Inchydoney Lodge & Spa. We love you all and thank you all so much for everything, you went above and beyond.


Daniel & Matt - August 2018

Just wanted to say thanks for everything - we really had such a great day. Everyone has been praising the hotel - particularly the food and the service at dinner

Nicola & Ronan - August 2018

Everything was exceptional and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. All of our guests were full of praise, with regards the setting, the service they received, the food, the wine and the relaxing atmosphere that was created. We had a number of guests comment on how mannerly the younger staff had been, and therefore wanted to pass this on so that they can keep up the good work!! Like ourselves nobody had a bad word to say about the day! It was a pleasure working with you throughout the year. You made our planning very easy.

Martin & Helen - May 2018

We just wanted to make a point of thanking you and all of the staff at Inchydoney for making our wedding day so perfect and a memory that will last forever. The attention to detail has been unbelievable from the moment we first made contact with Nicola late 2017 right up until the moment we checked out 2 days after our wedding. Nicola has been amazing and she and her team totally made this event happen. We simply cannot compliment Nicola enough for the work she did for us and she was a pleasure to work with. Every single member of your staff are an absolutely credit to you and themselves. They couldn’t do enough for us and our guests during the entire wedding week and on any of the 5 trips we have made to over the last 18 months. During our 5 trips your staff have never said no to any request. They really are a perfect example of what customer service truly is and could teach many other organisations a thing or two.We are looking forward to returning and spending new year with you and many of our guests are talking about returning in the future. Thank you all once again for the perfect wedding experience.

Olivia & Darren - December 2017

We had a fabulous day at our recent wedding at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa. The wedding coordinators, and all the staff, really looked after us on the day itself and in the lead up to the big day. A special thanks to Nicola and Olivia who ensured everything ran smoothly and for providing advice and support throughout the wedding preparations. The meal was absolutely amazing, with very smooth service and delicious food. Our guests are still commenting on how amazing the meal was! We would highly recommend Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa for a great wedding reception venue. This is a family run hotel whose focus, in our experience, was to ensure that the bridal party and the guests had an amazing weekend.

Lindsay & Mike - September 2017

This is just a quick email to say a big thank to you and all your team for all your work you did in putting together such a fabulous wedding for us, you and all your colleagues did a brilliant job, we couldn't have been happier with the end result.For many people from the UK it was their first time to Ireland and I know many are planning to come back, they were bowled over by the whole weekend. We were amazed by how professional & polite all the staff were at your hotel, everyone commented on this from our party, you should be very proud of how professional you all are. We cannot think of one negative. It was a pleasure dealing with you and all your colleagues, there was always a solution to any little problem or request which made it so stress free for us.

Eabha & Jason - August 2017

Jason and I just want to say a HUGE thank you to you and all the staff at the hotel that organised our wedding on Friday!!! It was more then we could have asked for and I still can't get over how smoothly it all went!!
I always knew the Inchydoney woukd be something special but thank to you and your team around you it surpassed our expectations in every way!
Anyone would have thought that we were the only wedding that week but I know that was far from the case.

Cherry & Joe - July 2017

When choosing our wedding venue we looked at so many options. Finding a venue large enough was our main priority, whilst ensuring a high-level
of service/accommodations. We found this in the Inchydoney and we were not disappointed. We visited the hotel for the first time in June (one month before the wedding)
and stepping inside we knew we had made the right decision. The decor was beautiful and the staff just fabulous. No request was too big or too small,
answered immediately and handled with care. Olivia is worth her wait in gold. She felt like my friend from the day we started emailing. So personal,
friendly and helpful. She is above her game and was always ten steps ahead. Totally unflappable and always smiling (even over emails).
Olivia was even more fantastic in person. So thorough and professional. I wish I had made notes on all the staff names, but we were having such a fabulous time
not working that I didn't think to do so. I would like to add that every single member of staff went above and beyond for us and our guests.
We cannot thank the team enough.

Eoin & Maggie - July 2017

Just a short note from Maggie and I to express our sincere thanks and gratitude for the wonderful wedding reception last Friday. The very warm welcome extended to us and all our guests was really appreciated. The drinks reception, food and room all exceeded our expectations and our guests  were raving about what a great day it was.Special mention to Julie, Lisa and Jack on the day and to Olivia for the previous month's preparations

Barbara & Brian - December 2016 

A massive thank you to all the staff at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, especially to Aideen, Ciara & Amy. We had the most amazing day. Their experience and efficiency is second to none. Literally from the first day we went down to view the hotel, and booked with Amy right up until the actual wedding day with Aideen and Ciara we knew we were in safe hands. They were so prompt in replying to any queries we had leading up to our day & were very accommodating to all our requests, allowing us to really relax and enjoy the day itself. A special thanks to Kieran who looked after us during our visits on the run up to the day. The tasting blew us away, nothing was too much trouble and the staff were so accommodating to us in changing a few dishes around to suit our guests. The hotel itself was a dream, the room was decorated beautifully. A stunning location with excellent service. The food was beyond exceptional and our guests are still talking about the steak!! We would do it all again in a heartbeat. Looking forward to our first anniversary already. Thanks again for everything!

Kevin & Anne Marie Byrneon - November 2016 

We had a very small intimate wedding here in Sept 2016, 11 guests which included 4 children. We had they most amazing time in Inchydoney Lodge and Spa. From the time we made the booking until we checked out we were looked after with exceptional professionalism thanks to Amy and her team. Every fine detail was taken care off which meant we could relax and enjoy our day. As for the location, it is one of the most beautiful spots in Ireland and so makes for excellent photograph opportunities. We could recommend Inchydoney Lodge & Spa highly enough.

Elaine - October 2016 

Thank you to all the staff at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, especially Amy who helped us so much in the preparation and on our big day itself. Our wedding day in Inchydoney really was wonderful and we could not recommend it highly enough as a wedding venue. We had lots of family and friends travel from abroad and the minute they set foot in the hotel, they were immediately made to feel at home. Many of our guests commented on the wonderful reception and the real Irish welcome that they received. The location and scenery itself is breathtaking and for people visiting it is a wonderful taste of Ireland. We got the most beautiful photos on the beach just outside the hotel. On the wedding day itself, everything was seamless and the staff could not do more to help us. From the morning getting ready, to leaving for the church, returning and the drinks and evening reception, everything was very relaxed and clearly under control. Now for the food!! Our guests are still talking about the food, with many commenting it was the best food they had ever received at a wedding! I thought it was fabulous at the tasting but secretly wondered could they pull off the same quality for a large group of people and they certainly can!!! The evening was fantastic with the hotel helping with all the organization and timing with speeches, the Irish dancers and the band. Many of our visitors stayed for the BBQ the following day, where again the food was top class and there was great craic to be had in the Dunes bar that evening. Those with sore heads the next day were able to revive themselves with a gorgeous walk on the beach. Organizing a wedding from London I thought would be tricky but from start to finish the hotel and Amy went above and beyond to help me, with local recommendations or advice and made the whole process easy. My new husband and I absolutely loved our wedding day as did all our guests at Inchydoney, we would definitely recommend it as a superb wedding venue.

Roisin - October 2016 

Inchydoney lodge & spa was the most perfect venue for our wedding day!! Before our big day Amy, Aideen, Julie & Ciara were always so accommodating & efficient with questions or requests. They always made helpful suggestions & used their years of experience to help us in whatever way they could. On the day of our wedding, everything I had envisaged was perfectly laid out for us & our guests. The food was exceptional - more like an á la carte menu than a wedding menu for 220 plus people!! Our guests were raving about the steak & seabass!! The service was amazing- never an empty glass!!

Louise & Tagdh - October 2016

Amy & all the staff at Inchydoney Just to thank you so much for giving us the best day of our lifes. The accommodation, staff, food and gerneral atmosphere of the whole place was top class. Well done. See you all for our anniversary.
