We stayed here for three nights, I do not know where to start. The setting is nothing short of breathtaking, the staff are as if they have been bred since birth to go out of their way and be lovely, the food is uncompromisingly tasty, I had a burger and chips on the first night and for a man who...

We were greeted warmly on arrival and that set the tone for the whole stay. The room was spacious, luxurious and spotlessly clean. Bathroom was also clean and luxurious. We ate in the hotel that evening and the food was wonderful. The choice was slightly limited in the main dining room, I think I might try the bar the next... More

Quiet, Idyllic hotel with spacious lounge areas and very comfortable large bedrooms. Opening a window could be a bit of a chore as some sash cord was missing and windows are very heavy. Beautiful bar area but at this level I expected a wine by the glass list of at least 5/6 white and red wines. I am prepared to... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. It is a fantastic location. The staff are superb. The room was very luxurious. The food was simply gorgeous. And we had the finest view of the falls from our balcony. Not to mention the soothing roar of the waters.

We stayed here last summer after making our way down from Achill and Galway. We also brought out dog with us who stayed in the doggie stables just around the corner from the main area of the hotel. Our dog was in the lap of luxury with a doggie bed, heated lamp and his name on his door. Our room... More

From the moment we checked in, the staff were so welcoming. The hotel itself is beautiful, offering every thing a five star property can. But the staff here truly are unique! We had a babysitter also on both nights, Claire, dear lord, mary Poppins! The kids loved her and we enjoyed a rare romantic few hours. I just can't say... More

This was our second visit to Sheen Falls Lodge and like the previous visit it excellent from the moment we arrived. We were made to feel welcome and nothing was too much much trouble for the staff. The facilities of the hotel are what you would expect but it is the peace and tranquillity of the lodges ambiance and grounds... More

Stayed here with family in April 2015 in a Superior Junior Suite with a view of the falls. Absolutely beautiful! Room was amazing and huge. Extremely comfortable king size bed and staff added 2 little beds for 2 children age 2 and 5. Huge living room area overlooking Sheen Falls. Biggest bathroom I have ever seen with separate bathtub and... More

Yes the hotel was great. Yes the location was great. Yes the staff were great. Absolutely amazing staff actually. But where else does one have the opportunity to participate in the ancient sport of kings, falconry? What fun! I cannot wait to return, for many reasons but falconry is high among the reasons. Our room was wonderful. Great view of... More
