Traveling throughout the southern half of Ireland, and our fifth stop took us to Sheen's Falls Lodge. What an absolute find! We were met by Sienad, and she became our best friend for the entire two night stay! The room was incredible -- a newly renovated suite overlooking the falls. The breakfasts were excellent, and tea was delightful. A bottle... More

What a wonderful place Sheen Falls is. The staff were very welcoming, warm and friendly. When my parents arrived (it was their 50th Wedding Anniversary present from their children) they were greeted by staff, taken up to their room and were made to feel very special. 2 glasses of champagne and chocolates arrived as a little gift from the hotel....

When a good friend and I decided to trek off to Ireland, the one thing she was hellbent on doing was falconry. She didn't care about kissing the Blarney Stone or drinking Guinness—she wanted a falcon on her arm. So she researched carefully and it was between Sheen Falls and some castle. She picked Sheen Falls and booked us into... More

The place has the wow factor as you come down the drive I never expected for it to be so grand! The service when checking in felt a bit pushy she really wanted us to eat on site! She was so pushy we did end up booking then cancelling once in the room! The room was lovely we had a... More

We just checked out of this hotel. We stayed with our 2 and a half year old and our 11 month old sons. I was quite nervous of how they would behave while in the hotel and the possible reaction of the staff if they were a bit boisterous. I couldn't have been more wrong on both counts. My children...

We went in September, weather was beautiful, no rain. We stopped at this hotel having made reservations several months before. The room was not refurbished, carpet stained, room right over entrance. We could hear everyone coming and going. We were supposed to stay two days, checked out in one. If you ask for a refurbished room I am sure it... More

My family just returned from a vacation in Ireland for my husband's 70th birthday. Part of our stay (5 nights) was at the wonderful Sheen Falls Lodge properties. We rented one of the charming villas (Villa Rosa) and could not have been more pleased. It was just as gorgeous, roomy and comfortable as the photos and website promised. Stunning views,... More

First, the hotel is gorgeous and our room was wonderful. It had one of the largest king beds I'd ever seen. Our view was over the water. There are several dining choices and a beautiful afternoon tea. Our dinner was tasty and it's a pleasure to have a good dining choice without having to drive somewhere else. The grounds are... More
