The hotel was fantastic, however, €9.50 for a very small glass of wine in the bar was way over the top. Appreciate they have to make a profit but this was extortion! Reasonable mark-up on beers but they would definitely need to re-visit their wine prices.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sheen Falls and were glad to see the change in ownership hasn't been detrimental to the quality of the service (which is often the case, sadly). Our room was beautiful, with a balcony looking out over the river. La Cascade, one of the restaurants there, is particularly impressive and well worth trying. I found... More

We stayed 4 nights in the Lansdowne Suite and were blown away by the space, luxury, superb food and excellent staff. We really enjoyed our time in a very relaxing environment. We can't recommend it enough and will definitely be back. If you're bringing kids, be warned though that there is a charge for the horse riding (we didn't realise... More

We have travelled around Europe for six weeks and with Ireland included n our itinerary, we did the customary check on 'trip advisor' and selected to stay at Sheens Falls Lodge for 2 nights whilst we visited this beautiful part of Ireland. Now, we have stayed at some fantastic 5 hotels throughout Europe so we're well placed to make an... More

Stayed only one night wish I'd stayed longer. One of the nicest and best luxury hotels I've ever stayed at. I believe all the rooms either overlook the falls or the bay. We had a really nice room on the first floor with the falls at our windows. Rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with an amazing bathroom with a... More

If you're in the Kerry (Kenmare) area, Sheen Falls Lodge is the place to stay. With Kenmare Bay at its front door and the Sheen River in its backyard, there's no shortage of picturesque views here. The hotel itself is classy and luxurious. From the clean, spacious rooms to the friendly, helpful staff, first-class amenities and incredible food options, everything... More

With a picturesque location along the Sheen river right by the falls, you could forgive the hotel if it rested on those "laurels", but it does not. Everything about the hotel is perfect; from the warm friendly professional staff for whom nothing is too much trouble, through the impeccable cleanliness and presentation throughout, to the superb junior suite we had...

I stayed here purely by chance, as I had nothing pre-booked and after 3 hours on the phone, this was the only place in all of southwest Ireland that seemed to have a room available. I'm not sure why -- it was quite reasonably priced, and was one of the best places I have stayed. Wonderful location right on the... More

It has been 16 years since I have visited Sheen Falls Lodge and it is every bit as inviting, gorgeous, luxurious and picturesque as I recall. The hotel itself is not formally-grand or ostentatious; rather, it is well-appointed, classic, authentic, and comfortable. Our room is enormous, with two comfortable "wall beds" for the kids. Our king sized bed feels vast,... More

This was the most amazing place we stayed in Ireland, not only was the hotel itself spectacular, the staff were amazing. My husband and I got married there on May 29, 2014 in the drawing room. There were only four of us, but the staff made me feel so special and we were their priority. The staff greeted us as... More
