wedding on Fri, 14th of December, 2018
We got married in Sheen Falls Lodge on Friday 14th December. Right from the start Clodagh listened to our every idea, worry or whim and was able to reassure and offer advice where needed, her experience and knowledge was so evident. On the day, she was always in the background and everywhere that

was needed. We truly felt that she made our wedding experience so personal. It was so lovely being greeted by Clodagh as we arrived at the hotel as a married couple as she had shared every step of this journey with us.
We'd also like to extend a special thank you to Ciaran - he was the first face we met when we started our venue search a year ago and every time we stopped into the hotel over the last year he was so welcoming and always stopped for a chat. We really valued the little snippets of advice on everything from the sauce on the fish to when to sneak off to the room for a break - always spot on. Ciaran was so attentive in the restaurant on the day and we really enjoyed his energy and charisma.
We were also so grateful to Cormac and the rest of the kitchen staff. The food was a real gourmet experience and we heard nothing but wonderful reports about the food on both days as we had a barbecue/buffet in the hotel on the 2nd day,
Finally, we really want to highlight how exemplary the staff were all weekend - if there was one resounding comment from all our guests it was how attentive and courteous every member of staff was. The waiting staff, the bar staff, the receptionists, the porters all made each one of our guests feel so special. We can't thank everyone by name, but Roland deserves a special mention for his unwavering patience behind the bar all weekend - he always had a wonderful smile on his face even at 5 in the morning!
Thanks again Clodagh, Ciaran and the rest of the amazing staff at Sheen Falls Lodge.

We had our wedding reception at Sheen Falls Lodge in April 2018 and could not recommend it highly enough as the most incredible wedding venue. The location of Sheen Falls Lodge is idyllic and picturesque and the beautiful setting meant that we could take all our wedding photographs on the grounds of

the hotel so had more time to enjoy our wedding reception. From The moment we set foot in Sheen Falls Lodge we immediately knew that Sheen Falls Lodge was the perfect wedding venue for us. We got further reassurance that we had made the right choice following our initial meeting with the hotel’s wedding coordinators, Ciaran and Clodagh who both have meticulous attention to detail and think of absolutely everything. They were both on hand throughout the weekend of our wedding to make sure everything ran perfectly! Ciaran and Clodagh took such an interest in our wedding, always offering helpful advice and suggestions when we needed it and were so quick at coming back to us whenever we had any queries. They were both a pleasure to deal with and made our wedding planning so effortless and stress free. We had a wedding of 188 guests and were also lucky enough to have our “Wedding Day 2” at Sheen Falls Lodge which meant that all of our guests decided to stay at Sheen Falls Lodge for 2 nights and made a weekend break out of it. The rooms at Sheen Falls Lodge are luxurious and spacious . From the canapes / wedding meal /late night food / BBQ on “Day 2”- the food which was exquisite and all of our guests were highly complementary. The talented Jim Kiely kept us entertained on the piano with a “sing-song” until the early hours of the morning. The service was top class and all the staff are so professional, attentive and yet very warm and friendly. In terms of choosing a wedding venue, Sheen Falls Lodge ticks all the boxes- We were so happy and felt very fortunate that we got to celebrate our wedding at Sheen Falls Lodge and look forward to returning for our anniversary.

We held our wedding reception in Sheen Falls Lodge in September 2018 and it was the experience of a lifetime. From our initial meetings with Ciaran and Clodagh right through to the wedding day itself we couldn't have asked for a more attentive, professional and helpful service. A special mention has

to go to the reception staff and concierge who so seamlessly checked in all of our guests and park dozens of cars without any fuss whatsoever.
Our drinks reception was a magical experience which was complimented by both Jim and Andre on the piano and saxophone. The food at dinner was the best meal either of us have ever eaten and we received compliments from several of our guests about the quality of the food as well as the first class service from all of the waiting staff. The scenery of the river and water fall in the background was a perfect accompaniment to the atmosphere at the dinner.
The entire layout of the hotel lends itself perfectly to the kind of intimate wedding that we were aiming to have, from the smaller library and drawing rooms to the cosy fires to the main dance floor and adjoining bar we really couldn't have asked for anything more. The bar staff also couldn't have been more helpful and friendly to both everyone. A special word of thanks here to Dmitar, John, Robbie, Artur and Roland (just to name a few!) at the bar.
We are both so appreciative for everything that Clodagh, Ciaran and all of the staff did for us and our family by creating the perfect day and would not hesitate to recommend Sheen Falls as an ideal wedding venue for anybody looking to experience five star service and luxury at its best.
We look forward to many more visits to Sheen Falls in the future!

wedding on Fri, 23rd of March, 2018
From the minute we saw the hotel we knew it would be perfect. Ciaran and Clodagh could not have done enough for us, it was great to have their help and advice as we weren’t sure about a few things. We did not have to worry about one thing at the reception, everything was done perfectly and there

was nothing that was too much trouble. I was delighted the hear back from the guests on how fabulous the hotel and especially the staff were. I felt as though all the staff really went out of their way to make sure everyone had a fantastic day. The scenery is beautiful and even though it rained on the day it was still absolutely amazing. The dinner in the evening was amazing as well as the food later on in the night. It was actually difficult to decide what to have on the menu as everything was so good. I am delighted we chose the Sheen Falls and I would highly recommend it as a wedding venue, the beautiful scenery and amazing staff really made it a wonderful day for us!
