Sheen Falls Lodge

Luxurious hotel outside Kenmare, overlooking a river and waterfalls.

Unique and luxurious, the 300-acre Sheen Falls Estate is one of Ireland’s leading 5 star hotels. You are never more than a hop, skip and jump from a plethora of exciting outdoor activities. Do as little, or as much as you want. Enjoy the beauty of the surroundings, from heather-covered mountains to cascading waterfalls. 

If the Estate’s enchanting surroundings and the cascading waters of Sheen Falls haven’t worked their therapeutic magic, then a visit to Easanna Wellness & Spa certainly will. Guests may unwind with a range of spa treatments.

Home-smoked salmon caught on the estate, seafood from Castletownbere and organic vegetables from suppliers are just down the lane. Sheen Falls Lodge is home to one of the finest Kenmare restaurants; perhaps even the best restaurants in Ireland, awarded 2 AA rosettes, The Falls restaurant serves sumptuous cuisine, with panoramic views overlooking the bay and Sheen Waterfalls. Guest may also relax in the Sun lounge and cocktail bar. 

All of the rooms are elegant and spacious, with ensuite facilities, a TV and striking views of Kenmare Bay and the cascading Sheen waterfalls. Free Wi-Fi internet access is available in the hotel.

Sheen Falls Lodge estate boasts estate activities, including salmon fishing on the Sheen River, golf, tennis and nearby horse riding and walking.
