My husband and I got married in Sheenfalls last May. I have been meaning to write this review for some time but better late than never as Sheenfalls deserves the recognition. Our whole weekend was outstanding from start to finish. We both wanted something very special for our wedding and when we booked Sheenfalls we both knew it was perfect.... More

It is said that the murderer returns to the scene as well as we would like to go to places where we were years ago felt very good. When will evaluate our current stay, I'm glad we went to this place, even though you can not step twice into the same river. We were again beautifully even though we were... More

We travelled from Dublin to stay for two nights midweek with our newborn baby. I had heard so many positive comments about this hotel, and was really looking forward to our stay. There are many positives about this hotel - the staff were just lovely, and so accommodating. The breakfast and dinner we had were delicious, and we hired a... More

Sheen Falls is guaranteed to give you an experience that is truly out of this world. The location is spectacular and the lodge does everything to help guests discover it for themselves whether it be having drinks on the terrace right in front of the falls, afternoon tea overlooking the bay and falls, maximising the number of bedrooms that overlook...

The hotel is in a beautiful setting and we were delighted with our room which was extremely spacious with lovely view. The food was of excellent quality and my Arnold Bennett omelette was one of the best I have had in a hotel with spinach smoked haddock and gruyere cheese. The fine dining restaurant meal was very enjoyable also and... More

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.
