At a Glance

This waterfront property is a more casual option in Kenmare than the Park Hotel, and is best for families traveling together.

  • The old Buick that takes guests around town
  • Rooms with a river view
  • The hotel’s four signature suites


For a small town, Kenmare has an extremely high number of Relais and Châteaux properties with both Sheen Falls and the Park Hotel Kenmare on the banks of Kenmare Bay. Sheen Falls is a quick three-minute drive from town and is a more appropriate spot for families traveling with young children. The hotel is comprised of 66 rooms (with four beautifully- appointed signature suites that are worth the splurge) and six cottages. Rooms either face Kenmare Bay or the falls, which run through the property and can be heard from rooms along the back. All have ample amounts of light and most are decorated in sunny yellows, light pinks, greens and taupes. The property has a newly renovated spa and their food program is on par with the best restaurants in town.

While the hotel offers fly-fishing, kayaking, shooting, riding and golf, guests should reserve one day for a drive to the Ring of Kerry or Berra Peninsula. Children will also love the vintage Buick that takes guests for a ride in town.

Who Should Stay

Families with young children who would feel uncomfortable in the more formal setting of the Park Hotel Kenmare.
