Sheen Falls Lodge Accomodation Guide
Sheen Falls Lodge is a magical, timeless haven of peace, situated just outside the charming town of Kenmare in beautiful County Kerry.
The hotel nestles serenely at the foot of heather-covered hills and overlooks the cascading Sheen River Waterfalls. Gracious living is a tradition here. You can relax in spacious lounges, where log fires blaze and the professional, friendly staff, are more than ready to please.
Fresh local produce, home grown herbs and innovation are combined with flair to bring you the very best of Irish and International cuisine. One can select a vintage from the Hotel's cellar and should you catch a salmon along the 15 miles stretch of private fishing grounds, the Chef will even smoke it for you.
Now a little history - back in the 17th century, the Earl of Kerry chose as his seat the high ground overlooking the falls of the Sheen River, where it tumbles dramatically into the tidal estuary. The house he built on this site now forms the core of the present day Sheen Falls Lodge.
Today, from the hotel, the visitor observes the views of woodland, water and mountains, much as they were in the Earl's day, but do so in the comfort that is Sheen Falls Lodge.
