The Art of Escapism During the Festive Season The Magic of Christmas at Sheen Falls Lodge

Christmas at the Lodge is like a magical blanket, that wraps itself around you. A warm familiar welcome, with roaring log fires, sumptuous sofas, and a sense of calm and occasion awaits you. Linger over a welcome drink while you soak up the atmosphere of the enchanting waterfalls and breathe in the aroma of pine and cinnamon. Watch the light fade over the snow-capped mountains and let the team take care of you and your family in the tranquillity that is the essence of the festive season.

Christmas Eve

Arrive on Christmas Eve, full of excitement and good cheer for the holiday season ahead, as you are greeted by the warmth of a blazing log fire and a warm welcome drink. Dine, at leisure in The Falls Restaurant or Sheen Lounge, which gives you time to spend with family and friends enjoying some of our festive menu choices and the soothing sounds of music in the background.

After dinner relax in the Sheen Bar where you can renew old acquaintances or make new friends, or perhaps unwind in the library and browse through their vast array of contemporary and classic literature in the glow of the warming log fire.

Christmas Day

Awake on Christmas morning to the inspiring views of Kenmare Bay or the Sheen waterfalls before savouring a special Christmas breakfast with a glass of Champagne as a seasonal indulgence. Traditional Christmas Day Lunch is a festive feast with classics such as Sheen Falls Smoked Salmon, Traditional Roast Turkey, and Roasted Sirloin of Hereford Irish Beef featuring on the menu.

A relaxed and informal buffet will be served in the evening with accompanying wine, tempting you to try some of the seasonal mouth-watering creations. After dinner enjoy the last few hours of Christmas, with a nightcap in the Sheen Bar, content and relaxed after a wonderful, stress-free Christmas Day.

St Stephen’s Day

If you choose to remain at the lodge for St Stephen’s Day, you will have the opportunity to get some fresh air and exercise after the indulgence of the previous day. Their St Stephen’s Day activities include a walk on the Old Kenmare Road, from Galway’s Bridge back to Sheen Falls Lodge passing through some breath-taking scenery. There is also the treasure hunt on the hotel grounds, and of course our immensely popular annual Clay Pigeon Shoot.

The festive fun continues that evening as they invite guests to dine at their leisure in either The Falls Restaurant or Sheen Lounge. After dinner enjoy music and song from Jim Kiely and friends.
