Olivia & Team We cannot express how thankful we are to each and everyone of you down in Inchydoney for helping make our wedding day on the 5th of May one of the best days of our lives. Inchydoney holds a lot of special memories for my husband and I, we have had many day trips to your beautiful establishment, celebrated New Years Eve, Anniversaries, got engaged down there and then finally married and I still cant get enough of the place. When we got engaged we will admit we looked around a few venues but we kept being drawn back to Inchydoney, we knew that we would not have to worry about the service and quality we would receive ...

A massive thank you to all the staff at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, especially to Amy and Ciara. We had the most incredible day and weekend there. Their experience, niceness and efficiency is second to none.

They were so quick and polite in replying to any queries we had leading up to our day & were very accommodating to all our requests, allowing us to really relax and enjoy the day itself.

We had a very small intimate wedding here in Sept 2016, 11 guests which included 4 children. We had they most amazing time in Inchydoney Lodge and Spa. From the time we made the booking until we checked out we were looked after with exceptional professionalism thanks to Amy and her team. Every fine detail was taken care off which meant we could relax and enjoy our day. As for the location, it is one of the most beautiful spots in Ireland and so makes for excellent photograph opportunities. We could recommend Inchydoney Lodge & Spa highly enough.

Thank you to all the staff at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, especially Amy who helped us so much in the preparation and on our big day itself. Our wedding day in Inchydoney really was wonderful and we could not recommend it highly enough as a wedding venue. We had lots of family and friends travel from abroad and the minute they set foot in the hotel, they were immediately made to feel at home. Many of our guests commented on the wonderful reception and the real Irish welcome that they received. The location and scenery itself is breathtaking and for people visiting it is a wonderful taste of Ireland. We got the most beautiful photos on the beach just ... Read more

Inchydoney lodge & spa was the most perfect venue for our wedding day!! Before our big day Amy, Aideen, Julie & Ciara were always so accommodating & efficient with questions or requests. They always made helpful suggestions & used their years of experience to help us in whatever way they could. On the day of our wedding, everything I had envisaged was perfectly laid out for us & our guests. The food was exceptional - more like an á la carte menu than a wedding menu for 220 plus people!! Our guests were raving about the steak & seabass!! The service was amazing- never an empty glass!!

It may be cliché to say, but when my fiancé and I got married last July in west Cork, it really and truly was the best day of our lives. Apart from all our nearest and dearest sharing in our special day and the fact that I was marrying the love of my life, the staff at Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa made our wedding day the most magical and perfect day and there is not one thing I would change. Prior to the big day itself, my fiancé and I had numerous meetings with the wedding planners at Inchydoney. Every time we met with them they made us feel like royalty. They listened to our needs and requests, nothing ... Read more

We couldn't be more delighted with our experience of Inchydoney for our wedding in July 2016 - from the moment we booked the venue until our wedding day, nothing was too much trouble for Amy and the team. The staff were so friendly and helpful, our day went so smoothly and people are still talking about how fantastic the food was (and how much of it there was - plenty for second servings!). I couldn't recommend this venue enough, and really hope that other couples have as fantastic and special a day as we had.
by Shane Kenneally on Fri, 30th September, 2016
We got married back in March and had a wonderfull day. Our guests are still taking about the amazing food and how there was plenty for everyone. Staff could not do enough for us. We were so lucky with the weather on the day, Inchydoney was the perfect location. We cannot wait to return for our anniversary.

We fell in love with Inchydoney as soon as we arrived. The views are phenomenal and the ballroom itself is bright, with beautiful sea views and a large bar. Amy, the wedding coordinator, couldn't do enough for us from the first time we met her. She was a pleasure to deal with from the booking right through to the day itself, always responding promptly to emails and calls. No request was too big and she was always so pleasent and calm. We received so many positive comments from wedding guests about the quality of both the food and the service. Second and even third helpings were available for those who wanted them and there was plenty of wine to go ... Read more

Fantastic service and a fantastic venue. My wife and I held our reception at Inchydoney Lodge and Spa in Oct 2015 and we could not have been happier with the venue. Amy and her team were on hand at every step to help and advise on all aspects of the wedding prep right up until the day. Everything was agreed and detailed in the paperwork and nothing was too much trouble from the start of the process to the wedding day itself. The venue were happy to liaise with supplies, help with and provide any request and were very flexible with us which we found reassuring. The day itself went without a hitch, food was very good, all our guests ... Read more

We both can not say enough about the service staff and care which was enjoyed by all who attended our day in September everyone said it was the best wedding they have ever been too and Johns sister who has said it was the best day of her life and considering she has 6 children all married with children of there own speaks volumes. Our friends who have arrived from Spain France and the Uk have all said please can they come back for the Anniversary but they will be all back at some point.

Our experience with Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa was very positive throughout from our pre-wedding contact with the sales team, right up to the day after the wedding. Amy Dorgan, the sales manager, answered all our queries promptly and was always available to meet with us and assist us whenever we wanted to discuss anything. We were facilitated in tasting as many dishes as we wanted when trying to choose our wedding menu. On the day of the wedding, our guests raved about the standard of the food and mentioned that the food was plentiful and the wine was flowing so we were delighted with this aspect of the Inchydoney experience. In terms of accommodation, our guests were very happy ... Read more

Inchydoney hotel and spa was an amazing venue for our wedding day. We really couldn't have expected anymore from all the staff at the hotel and especially our wedding organiser Amy. All our requests and demands were met immediately and she went above and beyond to help us enjoy our day. As a bride that was nervous she really did make me feel so much more at ease. I would recommend this location for so many reasons. Location, the quality of food, the help from the staff, the rooms and bar staff during the wedding and in the reception bar. All our guests were raving about every detail and we had no complaints at all. We were lucky to be ... Read more

What can we say, we had the day of our dreams! From the beautiful surrounding, to the fantastic food and the support, warmth & friendliness off the staff. We could not have asked for more. Our family and friends are still commenting on how impressed they were. A sincere thank you to Des, Amy and all the team at Inchydoney. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
by Nicola McEvoy on Wed, 29th July, 2015
To say that Inchydoney gave us the wedding of our dreams is an understatement! We had the most amazing time for our wedding weekend. From start to finish Amy our wedding coordinator was on hand to make our dream day come to life. The staff are exceptional, the food was out of this world and you simply cannot find a nicer setting! I had a list of decor that I was hoping for and everything was just how I wanted. We even had a brilliant evening the night after in the bar with finger food and live music. I couldn't recommend Inchydoney enough, I just wish we could do it all over again!
by Katie on Sat, 11th July, 2015
From my initial wedding enquiry, to checking out the day after our wedding, the staff at Inchydoney Island have blown our expectations away. We have stayed in many 5* accommodations before, but never have received the service that Inchydoney staff provided. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything was done with upmost sincerity and a big smile. I cannot express how happy we are that we chose Inchydoney Island for our wedding & for all our guests to stay. And how grateful we are to Amy, Ciara and all the staff at Inchydoney for making our wedding so perfect. Since returning back to England, everyone has been commenting how beautiful the hotel location was, how brilliant the staff were & ... Read more

We got married in and had our reception at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa on a sunny Friday in June and from start to finish everything was just perfect. From the first day we went to view Inchydoney we knew this was the venue for us, stunning location beautiful hotel and fabulous food. Amy Dorgen was our coordinator and was outstanding from the first day we met her to the day of our wedding, with having two boys of our own some things didn't go to plan but with the help of Amy, Julie ,Ciara and Brendan they sorted out the little hiccups and got me up the aisle!!!!! We knew the food was outstanding at Inchydoney and on our ... Read more

Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa is situated in one of the most stunning locations in beautiful West Cork and I can honestly say the service & hospitality we received at the hotel on our wedding day in June 2015 was equally as impressive. The quality of the food in particular was absolutely superb, with many of our 220 guests commenting that it was the best meals they had ever had at a wedding and I would have to agree. Meat dishes were cooked to individual preferences perfectly, something which is very rarely an option at a large wedding. From start to finish everything ran to perfection on the day and I would could not commend the staff highly enough. I ... Read more
by Michelle on Tue, 23rd June, 2015
I would definitely recommend Inchydoney Lodge and Spa enough as a wedding venue. Both our families stayed for the entire weekend and we had a ball. The hotel is extremely family friendly and everyone from grannies to kids had fun. The facilities in the apartments were excellant and ideal for families with small kids. Everyone raved about the food - I could not find a single fault with it. All the staff are excellant, in particular Amy, the sales manager who is very efficient. I never once had to double check or remind her of anything, in fact in was probably the opposite! My husband and I can't wait to return and enjoy many more relaxing breaks in Inchydoney.

Hi, want to thank inchydoney lodge and spa for their help organising the wedding, from the very start they were all about us and made every step easy for us. From venue set up, to food tasting, to service on the day I would give 10/10. No complaints at all. Would definitely recommend.

My husband Martin and I got married in a humanist ceremony in Inchydoney on the 11th of April 2015. From our first meeting with Amy we were confident that beautiful Inchydoney was the perfect location for our big day. Amy was really helpful and flexible throughout our planning - no requests were denied! These included a German buffet, an animal entertainer, a photobooth, and a whole turn-over of the room from a ceremony space to a reception within 2 hours. Amy and Lisa co-ordinated the whole day perfectly - they thought of everything, including little touches that we didn't even think of, such as a parking attendant for the guests as they arrived for the ceremony. The morning of the ... Read more

We had our wedding at Inchydoney on Saturday 18th October and couldn't recommend the place highly enough. Amy Dorgan was our wedding co-ordinator and she was excellent throughout and a pleasure to work with. Amy greeted us with glasses of champagne at the reception and we didn't have to worry about a thing from that moment on. She had it all under control and the staff couldn't have done more to make sure we were relaxed. The food was plentiful and outstanding and the service from the staff was truly exceptional. Lisa in particular did a brilliant job running the floor on Saturday night. This isn't just what we thought as our guests are still raving about the spectacular setting, ... Read more

We got married at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa on Saturday 23rd August and had the best day ever. We planned our wedding from Australia, having one trip home ten months before the wedding, where we met with Amy who kindly organised tastings and a tour of the hotel etc. We corresponded with Amy in the lead up to our wedding, she was a pleasure to deal with and very efficient in responding to all our queries. Amy was unable to attend our wedding but Helen and Lisa were fantastic replacements and everything that we asked for was delivered and the service was excellent. The food was excellent and we believe our guests were very happy with the meal. On ... Read more

Myself & my husband had our wedding ceremony and reception in Inchydoney on September 20th. Amy Dorgan was the wedding coordinator who assisted us with the preparations and she was a pleasure to work with in the months leading up to the day. From the moment we arrived on the Friday afternoon we knew it was going to be a wonderful weekend from the warm welcome we received from the front desk staff. We had our ceremony in the 'Inchydoney' room which didn't feel like just any function room; it was nicely decorated and they made great use of the windows & the spectacular views of the beaches. Our guests were really taken aback by the amazing setting and said ... Read more

The staff at Inchydoney are second to none - the service was simply brilliant. The food was top quality. Our guests have not stopped talking about how good the event was, how amazing the staff were, how much food there was and how well they were all looked after.

The owner, management and all other staff were a dream to deal with and our guests have said the same. The food was excellent, top class, we had beef cooked to order and sea bass. The beef was cooked exactly as requested by our guests and the fish was light and delicious. Our guests were given as much food as they wanted and second helpings.

We had our wedding in Inchydoney Lodge & Spa in August 2014. We could not recommend the hotel highly enough. From the moment we went to view the hotel and meet Amy our wedding planner we were amazed by the service and attention to detail that runs as an ethos through the hotel. Every member of staff went above and beyond to be polite with nothing ever too much trouble. This was not just to us as a number of our guests commented on how friendly and helpful the staff were. The hotel is in the most perfect setting with fantastic views and is immaculate inside. The standard of food from the hotel chefs was spectacular. The most tender lamb ... Read more

We had our wedding reception on Saturday 21st June 2014 and we couldn't have been happier with our day. From the moment we booked this hotel, we were looked after by Amy who was a point of contact from the very start answering any queries we had.

We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding than Inchydoney Island. All of our guests commented on the beautiful location, the great atmosphere and the delicious food and large portions. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather and to be able to hold our blessing outside in the amphitheater, which provided a beautiful background for our photos. Many people told us it was the best wedding they've been to. Above all, Inchydoney's staff were what made our experience a great one from start to finish. We planned our wedding from the U.S. and Amy, the wedding coordinator, was always available to answer our many questions throughout the process. She returned our emails right away and was ...

If you are looking for somewhere very special to get married, than Inchydoney Lodge and Spa is definitely the place for that. From the moment we first emailed Amy to inquire about available dates to the day we left the hotel after our wedding the service was fantastic. Everyone knows what a wonderful location Inchydoney is, and even though our wedding day was wet and miserable, it made the place even all the more romantic inside looking out! But what I was most impressed with was the level of detail and attention we were offered. Amy, Ciara and all the staff were so welcoming, not only to us but also our families. They have endless patience! In the lead up ... Read more
