Old world charm, stunning views over the Atlantic ocean, great food and excellent service. Located about 2km outside town, this lodge will help you forget that you are in one of the biggest tourist areas in Ireland and appreciate the beautiful scenery. Take one of their complimentary bikes and go explore the surrounding areas - I haven't biked in years... More

We stayed at Sheen Falls Lodge for 2 nights recently and it is a very peaceful and restful place. The setting is gorgeous with the Falls right there but the place had an eerie feeling of emptiness in the middle of their busy season. When we checked in we felt not so welcome and the staff was incredibly stiff and... More

From the moment we arrived we relaxed. The staff are fantastically trained and are ready to help with any need. The rooms are very spacious and the view of the falls is spectacular. Breakfast is excellent. The pool is not for swimming but more for relaxing, very clean. Highly recommend and we will be returning.

Stay more than one night & take full advantage of all the amenities- except the spa- it was horrible for the level of service that the rest of the staff provides. Make reservations for clay pigeon shooting, etc long before your arrival or you will get shut out. Will definitely be back!

We stayed here for 3 nights in May, with a lovely room overlooking the 'falls'. The place was really empty, but in fairness, it was a couple of weeks before the season really started for them. They don't really have anyone to greet you when you arrive, it's very casual that way, but it didn't bother us. The room was... More

We stayed at Sheen Falls Lodge during a road trip through Ireland it's got a spectacular setting. The room was great with a beautiful view of the falls. There are many things to do at this resort. The only drawback is we were mostly passing through and didn't Greta chance to avail ourselves of them.

Driving in the drive, you know you are someplace special. We were only here one night, but we were grateful it was part of our Ireland adventure. Such a peaceful setting, swans in the front bay, the waterfall along the side of the Inn and outside our window. Our meal was wonderful, the walk out from the lodge was just... More

Spent three nights in Sheen Falls last week celebrating my sister in laws big birthday. Eleven family in all visited for this special birthday. A wonderful time was had by all. Location is heavenly. Old world feel is part of its charm. Rooms spacious with beautiful views, probably the biggest double bed we ever slept in. Staff very professional but... More

Stayed here for two nights and loved the place. Impeccable service with great attention to detail. The staff is amazing. Food was delicious. Accommodations had very comfortable beds and oversized bathroom. Very tranquil setting with flowers everywhere. So great to have a fire going in the lobby fireplace. Would return tomorrow!!!
