Calor Customer Spotlight: Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa

Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa, a Calor BioLPG customer, is a stylish, family-run hotel situated on the outskirts of Clonakilty in West Cork. The hotel overlooks two stunning stretches of Blue Flag beach and is perfectly located along the coastline in Cork, surrounded by some of Ireland’s most breath-taking scenery.

The hotel has 67 beautifully decorated bedrooms. Every bedroom overlooks the ocean so guests can expect to be greeted with stunning views of the West Cork landscape from the private balcony or terrace. Whether you are looking for a romantic break or simply to recharge, Inchydoney has the perfect setting for you. 

Inchydoney is home to Ireland’s only thalassotherapy seawater spa; where seawater is pumped daily from the Atlantic Ocean into the hotel’s swimming pool. Thalassotherapy is a combination of the two Greek words meaning Sea and Medical Treatment. The Island Spa combines a heated Seawater Therapy Pool and Thalassotherapy Treatments. Guests can enjoy complimentary access to the seawater therapy pool, ocean view relaxation areas, as well as the steam room, sauna and gym.

Working with partners Elemis and Les Luneïdes Paris, the Island Spa has a wide range of beauty and body treatments for a one-off or full day pamper package.

Des O’Dowd, Owner, on welcoming guests back; “We are delighted to be welcoming guests back to Inchydoney. After the last year, people need to take time for themselves, to unwind.  We are proud to be home to Ireland’s only full functional seawater spa. It has always been a big attraction for guests staying with us.”

West Cork is Renowned for its beautiful food and Inchydoney uses local ingredients as the cornerstone of its varied menus. Guests have a choice between fine dining in the hotel restaurant, or the casual bistro.

Sustainability is at the core of operations at Inchydoney hotel. For over 15 years, the hotel has been a Calor LPG customer and recently decided to make the sustainably conscious switch to Calor BioLPG, our 100% renewable energy. The hotel has also switched their electricity usage to renewable energy with the electricity sourced from water power.

The commitment to sustainability runs throughout the hotel with significant investment in environmentally conscious choices. The hotel is home to one of Ireland’s largest solar arrays which has been generating electricity since 2006.

Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa takes its position as caretaker and guardian of its immediate environment very seriously, and is undergoing an extensive project to enhance and protect the natural beauty of the headland of Inchydoney Island.

Speaking about their sustainability initiatives, Des O’Dowd said: “I am so proud of how far the hotel has come on our sustainability journey. We are constantly looking at ways we can make better choices for the hotel and for the environment here at Inchydoney. This informed our thinking and is one of the main reasons we made the switch to Calor BioLPG. One of the great things about choosing this cleaner fuel option and working with Calor, is that our gas is automatically topped up when we are running low. It’s one less thing we have to worry about. I look forward to see what else we can implement on our sustainability journey here at Inchydoney”.
