I'm just back after a few days with my Mum to Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa. We were greeted really warmly with Irish whiskey and our bags were taken swiftly to our room by a lovely guy called Adrian. He was very pleasant and made us feel right at home. Needless to say the views from the room were fabulous.... More

Two friends and I checked into this hotel for 5 days and had a really wonderful experience. We had incredibly sunny weather for the duration and as the hotel is right on the beach, the colours of the sea, sand dunes and surrounding area were breathtaking. We all had spa treatments which were excellent. We found the staff to be... More

Having visited Inchydoney many times, it is amazing how bowled over I was by my very first stay in the Inchydoney hotel itself. We stayed in a family room with our 3 kids (aged 6, 4 and 1) and for the first time ever I actually enjoyed the 'family room experience'- the lovely room with patio doors onto a sea... More

Immediate feeling as you enter the lobby is of calm and peace added to a very quick and efficient checkin and a young man to take our luggage to the room. The room was light and spacious , beds big and comfortable and plenty of pillows,... More

We spent a few days over the Easter holidays in the self catering apartments in Inchydoney. We found the staff to be incredibly friendly. They ran a cookery class as an activity during the day, which was brilliantly supervised and our kids loved. They also have a lovely playroom, the pool is great for kids and they showed movies in...
