Sheen Falls Lodge was one of the highlights of our trip. They try very hard to make things as pleasant as possible. They were generous to upgrade our room after a mistake and then credited us with generous incidentals. They strive to make things right and are quick to make you feel special. Cordial and very respectful people.

Stayed in this hotel for one night so my experience is limited. The bedroom was excellent with nice beds and large bathroom. Of course the views and walks around the grounds are spectacular. I presume that a hotel of this quality has to take groups such as weddings to pay for the very high standards. This has a downside for... More

3 girlfriends escaped for a Pampering 5 Star Spa and Dining Experience Including an indulgent Facial and a Rejuvenating Indian Head Massage at the Easanna Spa at Sheen Falls Lodge, Kenmare, Co. Kerry. It was Fabulous. The therapists were lovely and the epitome of professionalism was shown by all the staff. So relaxing. Wonderful views.

It has a full kitchen, a large living room, dining room, and sunroom. Upstairs are two bedrooms and en suite bathrooms. Views over the Kenmare River. Guests receive a welcome... More

I was a guest at Sheen Falls Lodge in mid-August, and to be honest, I was somewhat disappointed. The accommodation was lovely, and the views from the windows were gorgeous. At check-in we were treated with great care, and I thought that it bode well for the whole experience. The dinner experience was what marred the stay for me. We... More

Absolutely beautiful location..! Beautiful, large and well appointed rooms with magnificent views. Very quite with luxurious en suite. Staff extremely helpful, knowledgable and kind! Only criticism was the restaurant noise level. The restaurant is beautiful with great staff and views of the falls but noisy crying and screaming young children took away from our enjoyment. Think they should consider an... More
