We stayed in the Garden Cottage in the grounds of Sheen Falls Lodge in March - and it way exceeded our expectations. The cottage is much bigger than we expected - both bedrooms are huge, with beautiful views out on to the bay. There are 2 large en-suites too - with heated floors being a very nice touch (especially in... More

My husband and I fell in love with this hotel when we visited on St. Patrick's weekend this year. What stood out to us the most was the friendliness of the staff. They were genuine, warm and attentive - the nicest staff we've encountered in a hotel. On our second day there, we bumped into Patrick, the manager, and mentioned... More

From the moment we walked in and our bags were whisked away while we waited for the room to be ready, the stay here was amazing. The room was huge with great amenities, huge fluffy robes and the view, straight onto the river and waterfalls was unbeatable. The bathroom was large and clean. Breakfast were one of the best I've...

We cannot recommend this hotel enough. It,s clean, stylish,spacious and the staff are really friendly. It's not far from Kenmare so you can drive or get taxi. Our taxi was 7euros and well worth so you can sample the Guiness. I think there are 17 pubs to try. Our best meal so far was at the Resturant 35 on the... More

Just left Sheen Falls Lodge and am heartbroken we are not still there. It is EXQUISITE in every way. It is by far FAR, the nicest place we've stayed in Ireland (we're at Adare Manor now, but wish we'd stayed at Sheen Falls longer...) The rooms are beautiful, elegant and spacious. The public areas of the hotel are drop dead... More

We visited Sheen Falls Lodge in September of 2013. We stayed in the Garden Cottage with a fabulous view looking over to the town of Kenmare and the Kenmare Bay. Upon checking in, the staff was friendly and informative. We drove down the long drive back to a large gate to the entrance of our cottage and one other. Our... More
