Service is great, never had such good service in europe, usually have to go to the far east to get that! Irish mist on arrival and a jar of local jam on departure very nice touches. The... More

Obviously the location is unbeatable right on the beach. The glass of irish mist on arrival was very nice also. In general staff were very pleasant, available and helpful. The room was big enough - could be slightly larger for me. The first disappointment was the SPA which they brochure says is 31 degrees - I did not have a... More

Communion lunch in the Inchydonney hotel was only amazing. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the food was great and the view/beach is one of a kind. We live not too far away but this was a great treat enjoyed but the whole family, young and not so young alike.
