Stayed here for 2 nights for my friends wedding. Loved every minute of it. The room was lovely and clean, and the views were stunning. The meal at the wedding was absolutely delicious. Staff are friendly and helpful. The grounds of the hotel are just beautiful. Would love to return.

We only stayed for one night whilst in Kenmare we wished we could have stayed longer the views were stunning and the hotel is great for relaxing after a long day sightseeing. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. They made our short stay a very nice one

Wonderful situation, spacious rooms, willing staff and good service but unfortunately this hotel is let down by the standard of food which is not 5star hotel standard in our opinion. The dinner menu never changed in six days we stayed; we were told that it changed seasonally . There may be misunderstanding between fresh and fresh frozen as we doubted... More

We had a lovely, longish, relaxing weekend here with friends and couldn't have been made more welcome. All of the rooms overlook the falls, so the views (and the relaxing sound of the water) are from every room. The restaurant is also very well designed so that most tables overlook the superb scenery - oh, and the food is great... More

Went here for a 3 day break during the Christmas period having previously enjoyed a break here in 2009. Our room was beautiful and the hotel surroundings stunning. However, staffing and service not up to standard. We waited approximately 45 minutes for a main course to arrive, and another 20 minutes for my partner's dinner. We had ordered the same... More

Stayed here over Easter weekend, warm welcome on arrival and we were shown to a fantastic room 316 . This room has a great view of the bay and is very comfortable. We had dinner in The Falls restaurant on the Friday night and they seemed to be under pressure. Service was mixed, food was good but not great !!... More

The amazing property is the attraction. The management would be able to be more complacent and still draw the clientele. They are instead doing a great job of attending to every need and making our stay memorable for all the right reasons. Too bad the 1936 Buick was in the shop!

Just returned from a 1 night stay in Sheen falls. Our family stayed in 2 rooms as there were 4 adults and 2 children. We stayed in a superior junior suite (room 306) and a superior room (352). I cannot recommend these rooms highly enough, absolutely beautiful, lots of space, luxurious, renovated decor & overlooking the scenic falls. Bathrooms out... More

Stayed at Sheen Falls for 3 nights while visiting the great countryside. Rooms are big (all rooms face either the falls or the bay) and well appointed. Dinner at the restaurant one night (Cascade) was brilliant but breakfast was average. Spa is not super-luxury but has a good sized pool and the therapist was good. One mile from Kenmare town...

Overall a disappointment. Beautiful location and views from our room. Bedroom should have been cleaner. Dinner was a disaster; an arrogant French waiter who got the booking wrong and asked us not to put our drinks on the table while the mess was sorted out. Choice was limited and after ordering told that one of just four choices was not... More

Thank you Mr Ray for bringing these points to our attention. Unfortunately during your stay we did fail you in a number of areas of your stay which should never have happened. This was not the experience I would have wanted you to have or that we pride ourselves on here. I have contacted you directly to address these issues... More
