“Truly Amazing”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

My wife and I stayed here this weekend as it was my wife's birthday, I must say it was fabulous.
My work takes me to Hotels all over the country and the attention to detail is 2nd to none in Inchydoney.
On arrival in the room was happy Birthday made out in chocolate, and it was just the start of a great visit.
The food, staff and hotel were brilliant and I would highly recommend it.
can't wait to go back again!

I have happily submitted to the magnetic pull of Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa for many years now and have witnessed all the changes over the years which have made this Hotel the wonderful place it is today.. I stayed there in May and again this month for four lovely days of R&R. The location of the hotel is absolutely superb. The bedrooms are very comfortable and all upper floors have balconies. No Hotel is complete without the friendliness, helpfulness and attention of its Staff and these Inchydoney Island Hotel has in abundance. I decided to have a muscle massage in the Spa which totally relaxed my body. I walked on the glorious beaches which totally relaxed my mind and I was delighted to see that the once gloomy Dunes Bar has now been redecorated and is a bright and cheerful place to relax in. As I had already experienced the excellent Menu in the Gulf Stream Restaurant in the main Hotel, I decided to eat in the Dunes.The service was excellent, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Brown Soda Bread Open Sandwich with Coolea Cheese, salsa sauce and salad.
I found Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa to be a truly Holistic experience .

From the moment we walked through the door our visit was special.The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble, our room was lovely and absolutely spotless.
The first night we ate in the bar, great atmosphere, live music the place had a buzz. The food was to die for - try the Chowder!!
Will definitely be back

Just home from my third visit to Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa. As always it was just amazing. Staff are superb, food fantastic, rooms perfect with chocolates on arrival. Walks on the beach in beautiful winter sun, followed by afternoon tea, a trip to the pool and a pampering treatment. This is without doubt the ideal venue to stay for that special treat with your loved one. Looking forward to my next visit already!

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean view with balconies and are just perfect no matter where you are located.

We stayed here with our 2 children over the midterm break at first concerned how we would amuse them, we were blown away by the effort the staff made with all their younger visitors, our 2 were kept busy cooking with the chef, Halloween arts and crafts and halloween parties.
Our room was huge and spotlessly clean, the property itself is superb and very well maintained but it is the staff that make this hotel what it is, nothing is too much trouble and they are more than willing to go the extra mile, my only complaint was the service in the bar is very slow and the menu quite pricey but other than that a wonderful experience.
