Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa
Modern comforts in a seaside setting draw travelers to this casual, elegant resort.
Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa is nestled into a cozy spot between a pristine shoreline and rolling Irish hills. The rustic beach serves as a soothing backdrop with the steady wash of waves over the sand. The hotel is equally serene, despite being so close to the bustling city of Cork. Guest rooms, suites and self-catering apartments are done in attractive, earthy tones, and most boast modern furnishings that are stylish and comfortable. Among the amenities are Nespresso coffee makers and private terraces.
A selection of board games, video games, movies, kites and other kid-friendly offerings make Inchydoney a draw for families. Meanwhile, adults can enjoy the on-site Island Spa, specializing in seawater-based treatments and therapies. Gulfstream Restaurant and Dunes Pub & Bistro showcase locally sourced seafood, meats, cheeses and produce. Like the accommodations, meeting spaces take full advantage of the sweeping sea views. The heritage town of Clonakilty adds to the hotel's appeal for destination weddings.
