4. The Inchydoney Suite
Earlier this year, Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa was delighted to unveil the elegant refurbishment of the Inchydoney Suite. Designer Nikki O’Donnell 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 with its bleached timber, golden touches and neutral colour palette brings the stunning seaside scenery indoors.
5. Snooze to the sound of the sea
Each guestroom in Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa offers guests a beautiful place to call home for the night, with many of the 67 bedrooms enjoying ocean views from a private balcony or terrace. From the bedrooms the stunning coastline below can be appreciated through both sight and sound, with light flooding through each room’s double sliding doors and the relaxing sound of the sea soothing guests to sleep each night.
6. A beach wedding
Inchydoney Island Lodge and 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.
7. Anniversary celebrations
Many couples love to return to the place they married to celebrate their anniversary each year, and how could anyone resist a romantic break in the beautiful Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa with its stunning setting, gorgeous food and pampering Island Spa.
