Nestled between its own cascading waterfalls and Kenmare Bay, this original 18th century fishing lodge boasts 72 well-appointed rooms and suites carefully designed and newly refurbished. Our main restaurant The Falls overlooks the floodlit waterfalls while casual dining is offered in either our Sheen Lounge or Sheen Bar.

Also located on the 300-acre estate are 5 cottages and villas. Accommodating from 4 to 8 guests each, all cottages have a stunning view over Kenmare Bay and beautiful landscaped private gardens. Located a short walk from the main hotel, the cottages and villas offer a home away from home experience with access to all the hotel facilities. Bedrooms in all cottages are ensuite. All cottages have full kitchens (with the exception of Garden Cottage which has a kitchenette), dining and sitting areas. A welcome hamper is provided on arrival for guests, each cottage is serviced every second day (should daily housekeeping be required a supplement of €100 applies) and Virtuoso amenities are extended to guests staying in the cottages.

Best of the Best

Sheen Falls Lodge, in verdant southwest Ireland, is a privately owned country house retreat. Guests are treated to a magnificent natural holiday and are encouraged to explore the surrounding woodlands, Sheen River, and cascading waterfalls while enjoying hiking, biking, horseback riding, salmon fishing, falconry, and kayaking. There are numerous championship and parkland golf courses nearby, some with breathtaking views of the sea. If the spa lifestyle is more your cup of tea, head to the Easanna Wellness & Spa for treatments using Elemis and Voya organic products, or take a dip in the indoor swimming pool.

Hotel Tip

The dining room is set right above the falls, and every table offers a beautiful view.

We have long looked forward to the day that the hotel will reopen and that we can welcome guests to Sheen Falls Lodge and have them experience the peace and tranquillity of our country resort. We will continue to provide a warm welcome, but in a slightly different way.

At Sheen Falls Lodge the safety, health and well-being of our guests and employees are very important to us.

Extensive protocols, upgraded training and enhanced cleaning procedures have been added to our existing housekeeping practices in all areas of the hotel. We will be taking the greatest of care to ensure your stay with us is safe and comfortable.

Below is an outline of the procedures that we will have in place to ensure you have a safe and comfortable stay with us.

  • Online check in & check out will be available to guests.
  • We have introduced temperature checks for all our staff upon arrival to the Hotel. Standard protocols will be followed for anyone with a temperature above 38C.
  • PPE is being used by our staff and is also available to our guests during your stay, including face masks, disinfectant sanitiser & disposable gloves.
  • Hand sanitiser stations have been set up throughout the hotel in both guests and staff locations.
  • Every member of the team has and will continue to be provided with training on safety, sanitation and physical distancing protocols. We have retrained all of our team in Covid-19 Prevention and Control Measures and will constantly monitor government guidelines to ensure the strictest of controls are in place throughout.

  • Bars and Restaurants have been rearranged to adhere to social distancing measures and our team have implemented new reservation procedures. We request that guests reserve all their meal times in advance to avoid unnecessary waiting times. Buffet stations will no longer be available.
  • Our leisure facilities including pool and gym areas have been revised to ensure social distancing. Reservations will now be required to limit guest numbers at any one time. For the moment, no access is permitted to the steam room, sauna or jacuzzi. We recommend that guests change in their rooms prior to using the leisure facilities.

Frequently touched areas will be thoroughly disinfected regularly during your stay. In room crockery will be machine washed at high temperatures.

Our guidelines have been developed in line with the Government Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business and the Return to Work Safety Protocol. The latest health guidance provided by the Department of Health, the HSE, WHO and HSA is adhered to for the implementation of our plans to reopen the hotel. All cleaning solutions are provided by Ecolab and used in accordance with their guidelines and recommendations. Zoono products including hand sanitiser will be given to each guest during their stay.

We will continue to monitor the evolving situation and we will keep our policies under review with the latest recommendations and requirements set out by the Irish Government.

We had stopped briefly at Sheen Falls years ago and resolved to return. Spending 4 nights there was a great relaxing experience. Our suite with terrace opposite the falls was delightful. Wonderful views, sounds and very good service. Area around Kenmare is very scenic-well worth the trip for relaxation in delightful surroundings.

Great value; excellent hotel near the Ring of Kerry

Sheen Falls Lodge was excellent. Great room near the falls, wonderful restaurant. Location allowed for us to easily dine at 2 of the very good restaurants in Kenmare and to take some great hikes. With new ownership we suspect it will keep getting better and better. PS They smoke their own salmon. Not to be missed!

Wonderful hotel in a pretty setting. Hotel could improve staff communications, new air conducting/ heating system was not working way it should & fresh berries need to be offered on breakfast buffet. Would definitely stay at hotel again.
