Just returned from a 6 night stay and Sheen Falls was worth every €. Situated just across the bay from the lovely town of Kenmare, the resort is picturesque and very relaxing. The staff is very attentive without being overbearing. It's the perfect Irish retreat if you need to relax and recharge. If you like a more active vacation then... More

I didn't stay in the hotel, so wouldn't be able to comment on that, but a friend highly recommended the riding stables there to me. I have horses of my own but always like to try different things so thought I would go down and see what it was like. Joyce was brilliant and gave me just the right horse... More

For me the Sheen Falls is all about the location and wonderful scenery. It is approximately 2 kilometres from Kenmare town, so its not for those who wish to be smack bang in the town centre. It is however for those who want to relax and use the facilities on hand. We use the spa and pool and both were... More

Wonderful setting, our room was very spacious overlooking the waterfall-so relaxing! But I feel there is room for improvement, the hotel itself is a little dated,the green carpet is awful... and needed to be hoovered! On checking in the receptionist informed us the wifi wasn't working which was not ideal! Breakfast was lovely, a special mention to 'Josef' who kindly... More

23 of us stayed at Sheen Falls Lodge, traveling to celebrate my parents' 50th anniversary. The location is great--Kenmare, Ring of Kerry, Killarney, all easily accessible. Activities were plentiful and well done, accommodations were fabulous. GM Ciaran Murphy is OUTSTANDING with customer service, assistance with pretty much everything and personality. The grounds are amazing-the raging falls, the lough, the lushness... More

The location is beautiful, convenient, charming, perfect. The people are wonderful, the best ever, helpful and attentional like nowhere, that is why we rate "very good" because without them it would be an "average". The building is uninteresting if not ugly, cheaply built, the rooms the same, no air conditioning (!), food is average and decor sometimes a bit depressing,... More

Our family of four stayed two nights in one of the family rooms and it really was wonderfully large! I loved the atmosphere and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We also used the pool, which was lovely, as was the spa. The kids went riding and fishing, and loved both, although they were quite pricey. All in all... More

My friend and I went horseback riding at Sheen Falls Lodge today. Joyce was very helpful and friendly. She made us feel comfortable right from the start. Brooklyn did a fantastic job on her second day!! We had a wonderful experience thanks to the staff and Chico and Ozzie too!

Just back from a mini break at this Hotel with my husband. From the time we entered the gates of this establishment I felt it was going to be special.
