Overlooking two magnificent stretches of Blue Flag beach, just outside the pretty heritage town of Clonakilty in West Cork, Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa is a warm, polished and welcoming seaside hotel with a unique and wonderful thalassotherapy seawater spa. The 67 bedrooms at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa all have ocean views from their private balcony or terrace, allowing guests to enjoy the stunning sights and fresh sea air of this beautiful stretch of coast
Part of what makes Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa so special is how it reflects its actual setting in a very real way. From the many staff drawn from the locality who have worked in the hotel since it opened, to the considered artworks on the walls, to the spectacular seawater spa that maximises the use of the pounding Atlantic waves below, Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa celebrates every aspect of the landscape and community in which it is set.
With paintings, drawings, sculpture, pottery and handmade furniture throughout the hotel, made by local artists, craftspeople and artisans, the walls and rooms of Inchydoney are entirely reflective of, and proud of, the wealth of talent to be found throughout the region.
That love of its setting can possibly be best appreciated in the food throughout Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, with menus created by Head Chef Adam Medcalf and his brigade in the award-winning Gulfstream Restaurant, with its relaxed and attractive beach-side ambiance, the Dunes Pub & Bistro with its nautical theme, and the beloved hotel Lounge, an oasis of luxury and calm in the heart of the hotel, and a key factor in so many guests returning to this seaside hideaway over and over again.
