Sheen Falls Lodge Kerry Hotel Review

The magnificence of this bright-yellow, slate-roof stone manor is matched only by its setting: 300 secluded acres of lawns, gardens, and forest between Kenmare Bay and the falls of the River Sheen. The public salons are painted in warm, terracotta tones, and the mahogany-panel library has more than 1,000 books, mainly on Ireland. Guest rooms—all modern-traditional, in bright yellows and tranquil beiges—have bay or river views. Fishing and clay-pigeon shooting are available on the grounds, and would-be falconers can take a hawk walk. The Cascade Restaurant is renowned for fine dining. There are also six luxurious cottages and villas on the grounds.
