This welcoming waterfront resort has Christmas gifting wrapped up
14th Dec 2021
This West Cork resort has waterfront views, seawater baths and starlight kayak rides. Need I say more?
It’s the time for holiday cheer and jubilation — both of which we can’t wait to share with loved ones this Christmas.
If you’re still looking for that perfect gift, whether it’s for your in-laws, friends or family, a staycation outside the city is just the thing.
Tucked away in West Cork, Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa is right beside the ocean with gorgeous views of the beach, a seawater spa, gourmet restaurants and plenty of adventures to embark upon this season.
Something for everyone
Prepare for a complete escape! From the moment you walk through the doors, you’ll be enveloped in a warm West Cork welcome.
From the contemporary but cosy lounge areas which offer stunning ocean views, all from the comfort of a warm chair in front of a roaring log fire, to the little locally sourced finishing touches and the ever helpful team who just want to ensure you get the most from your stay.
For those who fancy indulging their adventurous side, there is lot to bring on that adrenalin rush. Guests can take a Baltic plunge and learn to surf with Inchydoney Surf School, paddle under the moon on a starlight kayak with Atlantic Sea Kayaking or brave the waves watching whales with Atlantic Whale & Wildlife Tours.
For those of us who like the quiet life and fancy something more relaxing, the heated Seawater Therapy Pool is the perfect way to unwind, especially if it’s paired with a shoulder massage at the hotel’s spa (ideal for anyone who’s been hunched over the desk while working from home).
Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa has been voted Ireland’s leading spa no less than seven times at the World Travel Awards so you know you’re in great hands.
If you’re looking to get in touch with your inner calm, maybe a yoga class overlooking the ocean is just the treat you need. Complimentary yoga classes are available to help you connect body and mind through movement and breath.
And the food… when you’ve worked up an appetite after an invigorating walk on the blue flag beach there is so much to choose from. West Cork has a strong history and culture of good food production, something that is truly celebrated at the hotel. The team creates new menus regularly that reflect the wonderful array of produce available to them on their doorstep as far as possible.
Whether your preference is for bistro style or fine dining, you’re assured of the very best from local artisan suppliers — all while soaking in those amazing Atlantic views — before retiring to your beautifully appointed room where you’ll gently fall asleep to the sound of the ocean waves just a stone’s throw away.
