Excellent hotel, facilities first class and the staff exceptional - would certainly recommend to families and couples. Breakfast was a particular highlight for us being able to have it whilst looking out to sea!

An amazing location, from the moment we arrived we were charmed with the Lodge & Spa - a welcoming taste of Irish Mist greeted our arrival in the beautiful relaxing reception area. We stayed for 5 nights and the high standard of service we received in both the Lodge and the Spa never wavered. Our room overlooked the beautiful sandy... More

it was a very fab hotel even though it is pricey but the location was great for beach lovers. the negative part for me is the fine dining restaurant is not family friendly. even the service staff was not accommodating. the bar was great and good food.

We stayed here the last 3 years in a row. Great hotel, fab location right on the beach. Super amenities - gym, pool, spa, picnics. Very family friendly. Staff great who assist with everything. Surrounding area great too with Clonakilty on your doorstep, Cork an hours drive, Sherkin Islands, Baltimore for sailing. Really everything at your doorstep.

Great after 5pm when you nearly have it to yourself. Loved the welcome "Irish Mist" A lovely touch. Only minor complaint was that our room was to the rear... More

We stayed in Inchydoney in the 15th and 16th of June this year. It was our first stay in the Hotel and we were very impressed. The setting is beautiful. The foyer is very impressive, it's like you've landed in the Hamptons. We received a very warm welcome and had delicious bar food on our first evening. The rooms are... More
