Located on the stunning Inchydoney Beach outside Clonakilty, and the country’s first seawater spa, the Island spa at Inchydoney has been named Ireland’s leading spa resort seven times at the World Travel Awards. It offers a unique experience in seawater therapies.

All guests have access to the seawater therapy pool and ocean-view relaxation areas, as well as a steam room, a sauna and the gym. Water is pumped in directly from the ocean and heated for use in a variety of therapies aimed at calming, cleansing, rejuvenating and relieving tension. More traditional spa treatments are available and there are packages aimed at mums-to-be and those in need of an early taste of summer.
