Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa, our Venue of the Month for October 2017, is overlooking two magnificent stretches of Blue Flag beach, just outside the pretty heritage town of Clonakilty in West Cork. It's a warm, polished and welcoming seaside hotel and its stunning location, gorgeous food, and warm service and attention to detail come together to make it a glorious spot for an idyllic wedding celebration.

Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa offers something very unique to couples – the chance to say ‘I do’ outdoors on Inchydoney headland which offers unparalleled dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean and natural music in the sound of the crashing waves. Or you can hold a civil ceremony indoors in the beautiful Inchydoney Suite which also boasts gorgeous beach views.

Early this year, Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa was delighted to unveil the elegant refurbishment of the Inchydoney Suite. Designer Nikki O’Donnell has worked closely with the wedding team to create a breath-taking, natural light filled space that can be adapted for civil ceremonies and weddings of all sizes. With soft seashore tones of blue and grey, and a relaxed and fresh style throughout, the new look ballroom boasts bleached timber, golden touches and a neutral colour palette.

The warmth and hospitality of the staff at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa is evident in their weddings from the moment of enquiry right through your big day. Menus at Inchydoney are full of locally sourced ingredients, and your guests will love the delicious wedding meal prepared by Head Chef Adam Medcalf and his team.
