We love staying at the Inchydoney Lodge and Spa hotel. The location is excellent but the staff in the hotel are second to none. It is a fantastic hotel in a beautiful setting and is our first choice for rest and relaxation. The beach view from the hotel is breath taking and long walks allow us to unwind from the... More

I was impressed by the attention to detail in this hotel. eg. When I entered my room the flatscreen tv came on automatically and it showed a video of West Cork attractions with maps plus there was a welcoming feel about the place. The food was top class in the dining areas, both breakfast and evening meals. The warm seawater... More

Stayed with two friends who'd travelled over from London and Manchester. Our interlocking rooms were lovely, we were served with a welcome liqueur while our bags were taken up. Everybody we dealt with was natural, helpful and friendly. The food in the restaurant was delicious and our waiter suggested we bring our cheeseboard in to sit by the fire and... More

Myself and the Wife stayed for 2 nights Sunday & Monday in November. It was a beautiful weekend and I could why this hotel is so popular in the summer months.

I can't think of enough positive things to say about this charming, friendly hotel. First, the setting -- absolutely amazing, perched on a small cliff, overlooking the sea, waves crashing in on the beach at all hours. The interior of the hotel is almost a match for the majestic exterior, tastefully decorated, well appointed rooms, and LOADS of interesting pieces... More

Third visit to this wonderful hotel. Enjoyed lots of walks on the beach and fabulous food and accommodation. Once again the staff were amazing and made us feel very welcome. Drove part of the Wild Atlantic Way which is so easy from the hotel and the scenery was stunning

As soon as you walk in the front door of the hotel, there is a loveily sense of calm & this is only the beginning. Each of the rooms has a balcony overlooking the beach, for an unusually sunny Irish November, the view was spectacular. Try for a room on the third floor, the breakfast room, the dining room &...
