Luxury in its finest form...
After what can only be described as a stressful year, there's almost nothing like slipping into a soft, white robe, switching your phone to 'out of office' and whiling away the day being preened and pampered by a stranged you don't have to make small talk with. For nothing is more indulgent than the prospect of a deluxe spa escape.
With overseas travelling still off the cards, you may be wondering if you'll ever see a hotel and spa again. Well, the good news is that Ireland is home to some of the most luxurious hotels and deluxe spas in the world. One such destination is Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa.
Operating since 1998, the hotel is located just outside the colourful heritage town of Clonakilty in West Cork, a region blessed with some of Ireland's most spectacular scenery. Perched on a slope overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the entire resort enjoys magnificent panoramic views of the sprawling white sandy beaches that stretch out endlessly in front of it. Wake to the sound of waves crashing on the shore, walk hand in hand along the beach or simply enjoy the view from your ocean view balcony or terrace. A family-owned hotel that prides itself on its stunning location, contemporary accommodation, unique seawater therapies and sumptuous dining, Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa is luxury in its finest form.
Winner of many awards and accolades from Ireland’s Leading Spa Resort at the World Travel Awards and Ireland's Leading Resort at the Irish Hospitality Awards to Best Four Star Hotel at the Hotel & Catering Review Gold Medal Awards, Inchydoney is a true slice of heaven. Whether you are staying with a loved one, children or friends, their aim is to help you create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
Escape to paradise...
Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa has been voted Ireland's Leading Spa Resort at the World Travel Awards not once, not twice but seven times! Home to Ireland's first Seawater Spa, they offer a unique experience in seawater therapies as well as more traditional spa treatments and rituals.
While the spa experience will look a little different – you can expect increased cleaning frequency, therapists wearing PPE, and to book treatments, pool and relaxation area slots ahead of time – a silver lining is that limited guest numbers to aid social distancing mean an even more peaceful atmosphere.
