We went to this hotel as a family for a little break before a wedding in Ireland. Set in a stunning area with beautiful beaches... Hotel and staff were lovely and I would highly recommend. Only complaint would be that though the restaurants were great they were a little pricey (especially the in the bar).

Inchydoney is a haven of tranquility that lets you leave behind the stresses and strains of life and pamper yourself in a stunning location. The staff and service are second to none. We will be regular visitors to Cork in the future thanks to Inchydoney!

We stayed here last week for three nights. The location is absolutely stunning. From the moment we arrived until we left, we were treated to the best service I have ever experienced in any hotel I have stayed in. We were offered complimentary drinks on arrival. Shortly afterwards we had a beautiful array of home made macaroons and chocolates delivered... More

From the moment we walked in the door I felt like royalty. After having my hen do in Clonakilty, I stayed here with my Mam and sister in law. It was the ultimate treat! From being offered a complimentary drink as we arrived to having a member of staff knock on the door to check we were ok, bringing chocolates... More

Just returned home today from Inchydoney and I just don't know where to start! A very warm welcome from the reception staff met us on our arrival complete with a glass of Irish mist. We were shown to our room quickly and had our bags carried for us. Now I hadn't mentioned upon booking that it was my birthday but... More

Having recently stayed at the Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa I cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone considering staying here. The view from our balcony was amazing, the staff were incredibly helpful and the food in both the Gulfstream restaurant and the Dunes Bistro was excellent. My wife and I had intended to explore West Cork, but apart from... More

Its a 4 star with 5 star prices. Enjoyed dinner in Gulf Stream restaurant upstairs even though service was extremely slow in... More
