Once again as a family we returned to Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa for another holiday break . It is honestly a fabulous hotel . The staff are so friendly and helpful throughout the hotel especially all those wonderful people who work in the dining room at breakfast time - nothing is a problem . The food is all locally sourced and beautifully prepared . The bedrooms are so spacious and fresh with patio doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the breathtaking Inchydoney beach. We have returned here almost every year since we first discovered it about 9 years ago and it has never disappointed us .

We can without any hesitation recommend it as a really great place to stay .

My wife and I and our 16 month old baby stayed in Inchydoney last week. This hotel is top class. The setting is gorgeous, our room was very spacious, spotlessly clean and the view from the balcony was amazing. It was lovely to wake up to the sound of the ocean each morning.
We ate in Dunes bar and the Gulfstream restaurant, the service and food in both were excellent.
What sets this hotel apart is the staff. From check in to check out and all in between all the staff were so freindly, helpful and efficient.
Clonakilty is a beautiful little town full of character and is only 5 mins drive away which has lovely shops, restaurants and pubs.
This was our first time to Inchydoney and please God will not be our last!!!

Had a wonderful stay. Breakfast was amazing along with the staff throughout the hotel! Everything you will need for your stay you will find in the hotel. We ate in the bar on the first evening and our food we could not fault. The town of clonakilty is also very beautiful. Worth a walk round. We will most defiantly return.

On Check In the Hotel Room was lovely. A large double bed, a single bed, and a very solid camp bed for my 3 year old. Lovely balcony looking over the beach. Lovely touches like a tray of fresh fruit, water. As we had stayed in the hotel before - some 10 years ago, a bottle of wine and some mini treats were sent up!
Breakfast was very good - all fresh. My children were able to order fresh pancakes from the menu, so were delighted.
The pool is great fun for the children.
I cannot recommend this hotel enough.

Just returned from a stay at Inchydoney Island \\\lodge & Spa. Cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff were excellent, the food superb, the location just heaven. I have no hesitation in recommending this venue as a holiday destination. Could not find any fault with it and will definitely return there again.

Room Tip: I loved where we stayed, at the back of the hotel. You still had a terrific view of the sea and lots of privacy.
