we booked a christening in september 2015. the grounds and hotel are lovely. however they cannot cater for parties of any size. there was little or no service. The head manager was notified on several occasions but he did not have the staff to deal with us. There were numerous apologies etc but unfortunately the whole thing was a fiasco.... More

This is going to be short; it's fantastic. The room, view, food (oh the food), the staff; just super! We stayed for three nights in the New Year for a wedding. I particularly loved all their rooms where guests could sit down in and relax, so, the bar, the library and TV room. Lovely open fires and relaxing atmosphere. Staff... More

We went here for Christmas. Apart from the weather it was perfect. Really nice staff, they even chose decent gifts for our children that they really liked, so somebody who had experience of what children that age like had given it some consideration. Beautifully decorated with a warm and comfortable festive atmosphere. I was surprised at the quality of the... More

Had heard so much about this hotel I was looking forward to our stay. Stayed on a Sunday on a bank holiday weekend. The hotel was busy but the staff seemed to be run ragged and had no leadership. The room was nice, bed was comfortable. we used the leisure centre and the pool was freezing, the sea would have... More

My friend took me to Sheen Falls when I was expecting for a girls spa break. Our stay was very relaxing and we received a warm welcome. Our twin bedroom was huge with wonderful views over the river to the front, the beds and linen very comfortable. The en-suite bathroom was luxurious with fluffy robes provided. The spa was fine,...

This is a most spectacular property with a true five star service on offer. Before visiting we anticipated that it would be a wonderful place to spend a few winter days and were proved right. The hotel has numerous rooms to hide away and relax most of which have roaring open fires and soft comfortable seating. The Christmas decorations made... More

I stayed at the hotel last weekend for a friends wedding and as a couple we were delighted with the old world ambiance from the moment we arrived. The staff were all most courteous and pleasant and were most helpful. The room we had was overlooking the front of the hotel onto the river. It was an enormous room with... More

We spent two nights at Sheen Falls Lodge during our first anniversary trip to Ireland. This was our second stop on our adventure and the property certainly didn't disappoint. The resort is beautiful in a stunning location. We were in room 452 with a view of the falls. The room was lovely. We visited the bar each evening for a... More

Yet another wonderful stay at our favourite Irish hotel, this time on the occasion of my partners 65th birthday. The staff went all out to ensure that it was three days to remember, for ourselves and our guests. The rooms were perfect as always, with particular mention to the family room that one set of our guests enjoyed, and the... More

Spent 3 nights in Sheen Falls between Christmas and New Years and it is one of the best experiences we have had. The staff could not do enough for us, the atmosphere in the hotel was relaxing and perfect, the rooms were very large, comfortable and really clean, and the food was faultless to the last crumb. The location is... More
