Lovely modern hotel, with good facilities, very quiet and relaxing, stunning views and beautiful beach for strolling on while the surfers surf. Very helpful and welcoming staff, nice range of menu options in Dune bar where we had a quick meal, next time hope to have a longer stay to try out the spa and the 5 course dinner.

We wanted a cosy, winter break by the sea. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are quiet. There is no noisy air-con in the rooms. We loved the salt-water pool but it was November and we felt the pool could have been a few degrees warmer. The staff are fantastic and the food in Dunes bar is great.

Been twice this year, booked our return all ready. The location is Ireland at it's most beautiful, the facilities first rate, the food wonderful, but it really is the service that draws us back, naturally friendly & helpful staff that didn't feel like it was leaned in customer service training.

Thanks to all in Inchydoney for wonderful welcome. A special thanks to Leita in the Spa for a super-relaxing deep tissue massage on my neck and shoulders! I'm a new person after it! Can't wait to come back. (Nespresso machine in the bedrooms was such a treat!)
