First time in Inchydoney and we were very impressed with both the hotel and location. We arrived last Friday 23rd January for three nights. The Irish Mist greeting was a nice and very welcome greeting on a rather dismal day, weather wise. We had dinner in the Dunes Bar on the first and last night and in the Gulfstream restaurant...

I stayed here for one night and also experienced their spa! You are really treated to a five star experience. I've never experienced such thoughtful staff. On arrival we were given a welcome drink followed and then brought to our room. The rooms are fab with great views. The nespresso machine and books on west cork really added to the... More

Following an invigorating walk on the beach we decided to dine in the hotel. We enjoyed pre dinner drinks in the stylish residents bar where we were able to peruse the... More

We have stayed here several times before. The beach view is fantastic. The hotel isn't perfect but it's still great. I would have liked to turn off the radiator. There was a sign saying that there is an access hatch so that you can turn off the valve but there was no access hatch (room 411) as far as I... More

We stayed in the apartments for a few nights and then treated ourselves to a hotel room for the 4th night. Both experiences were tremendous and the seamless way the... More

For the past number of years a group of friends and I spend a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend staying at Inchydoney Spa Hotel, usually several weeks before the hectic round of festive activities associated with Christmas commence. Driving from Dublin the journey usually takes about 3 hours 45 minutes. Perfect for a weekend away. Each member of our party may... More
