“Stop off!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Travelling round the Ring of Kerry or just visiting Kenmare. We have had coffee or tea and shortbread or scones in luxurious surroundings. I always have a little doze to myself here before starting off again.
The grounds are lovely to take photos and it would be a superb place for a wedding.

“Average meal, terrible service.”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at Sheen Falls Lodge three nights: took breakfast in La Cascade every morning, had lunch in the Sun Room one day, and dinner at Oscar's one night. Each of these meals was just average in quality and thus quite overpriced, but the real shame was the disorganized and extremely slow service. We learned to order the moment we were seated, or else it could be a while before any wait staff showed up again, and then a long time until the food actually is served. Dishes would arrive at wildly different times so that some would have the main course in front of them and then be forced to wait uncomfortably since others had nothing. Several staff told us they were new and had just been brought on for the summer. A few barely spoke English. For a so-called 5-star facility, the dining was a huge disappointment.

“Top Class Food”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Ate 2 dinners here and everything was great. Way better than one would normally expect of a hotel. Especially loved the seafood linguini, the beef medallions, the scallops and pork belly starters and the creme brulee and chocolate deserts. Ambience is relaxing. Service is superior provided by the helful and professional Anna, Ciaran and Youhan. May be a little on the pricey side in comparison to some places but it is good value and worth it.

“By far my most favorite stay in Kenmare”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

From the Garden Cottage to the ground to the staff, Sheen Falls was by far my favorite place to bunk down for the night. Absolutely first rate in every way. Be sure to wander the grounds and explore every inch.
