We were there for Christmas and, unlike the previous reviewer, thought it was an extraordinary experience. We went all over Ireland on this trip and stayed in 4 other hotels, 3 of which were also luxury/5 star and none of which measured up to the Sheen Falls Lodge experience. Contrary to the other reviewer, the staff at Sheen Falls Lodge...

The hotel was understaffed over the Christmas period. Service was slow and hassled. Some staff seemed new and unfamiliar with the place. The dinner menu (5 main options approx) did not change for several days. The breakfast was very limited and not what you would expect from a supposedly luxurious Irish hotel. The rooms are nicely appointed but the water...

I was very unhappy with how the staff handled some key mistakes that were made during our visit. The most important being were our dog stayed. We specially had booked for our 13 yr old golden retriever to be in the heated kennel as described. We spoke with members of staff to confirm this twice before arrival. On the day...

The property is lovely, hovever grossly understaff and in great need of renovation and upgrades. No valet to meet you upon check in. The concierge, bellman and maintenance man are all one in the same. Martin was extremely hardworking and did his best but unfortunately the management was not worried about guest comforts. We could not take a bath the...

Simply five star......from the moment we arrived till we departed. We were there for four nights over Christmas. They know what service means. Christmas lunch was excellent and the Gala dinner on St Stephens night was a superb end to a wonderful break.

We stayed at the Sheen Falls Lodge in early October. What a lovely resort! The common areas are so beautiful and well kept, the scenery from every angle is spectacular, either the bay side or the falls. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. We arrived early because our flight from Boston landed around 7:00am. Although check-in...
