Tranquility at it's best.
Overlooking the beach at Inchadoney, we stayed at this beautiful tranquil little cottage for 5 day's. To be honest we asked if we could stay longer, but alas we could not as Sam, Angela & family were expecting more guests later on Monday. Only 4 kilometers from Clonakilty town & we were in heaven. The beach is blue flaged & suitable for surfers of all capabilities. A beach walkers paradise. We were greated on arrival with a welcome hamper, freshly cut flowers and chocolates on the pillows, it was just divine. The breeze was gentle for and autumn evening and let me tell you every minute of the day was a photo for social media. The cottage so so clean. The nights were so so cozy. We wanted for nothing. We had a beautiful meal at Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa. We visited The West Cork Model Railway Village in Clonakilty. We did some sight seeing, a little shopping & a coffe in the beautiful town of Clonakilty. So to sum up I would recommend a trip to this Idyllic Inchydoney Island Beach Cottage. I have been from India to Scotland and I have to say this was the best place to be by far. So enjoy a little piece of heaven on earth from me, my son & my sister. We will be back for sure. Thank you Sam, Angela, Luke & Brendan :))))

Inchydoney Island is a wonderful, relaxing, idyllic place, but still near enough to lots of lovely local pubs, restaurants and activities. Being right by the sea, you are free to enjoy the fresh air, a wonderful swim or even a surf! Our Inchydoney beach is an award-winning beach, consistently voted the Best Beach in Ireland. It has been awarded a blue flag beach multiple years in a row due to its exceptional cleanliness of water. We are sure you'll enjoy the wonderful, million-dollar views our cottage also offers of the beach and the Atlantic ocean! We are perfectly positioned along the Wild Atlantic Way for you to explore the nearby little towns and villages also.

There are multiple options for you to explore and get to Inchydoney. We have regular bus services to and from Cork City and other little towns in West Cork, meaning you can easily access Clonakilty Town from Cork Airport or Cork City. There are also many car rental companies in Cork City and at Cork Airport. Inchydoney and Clonakilty also have a lovely inexpensive local bike rental scheme, and Inchydoney Island has a bike rental point only a five minute walk away from the cottage, meaning you can cycle into the local town too!
