Inchydoney is a small island long connected to the mainland by two causeways and is located near the town of Clonakilty in west Cork.  Inchydoney is a sandy Blue Flag Beach located on Inchydoney Island.

This beach is accessible by car. Public parking and toilets provided adjacent to the beach and lifeguards are on duty on weekends during the bathing season (lifeguard times are posted on the information noticeboard on the beach). Toilet facilities for people using a wheelchair are available at the hotel which is located adjacent to the beach.

In 1584, the island, having escheated to the Crown, was granted by Queen Elizabeth I to the Bishop of Ross. After the Battle of Clonakilty, in 1642, 600 of the Irish forces fled towards the island to take refuge; but with the tide setting in at the time, they were all drowned before they could reach it
