A Summer of Adventure

Sheen Falls Lodge Horseback Riding

The 300-acre estate of Sheen Falls Lodge transforms into a playground of adventure during the summer months. Traditional estate activities such as falconry, horseback riding, fishing, archery, clay pigeon shooting, and golfing continue to enchant visitors. This year, however, guests can also test their mettle with the new axe-throwing offering. For golf enthusiasts, the Ring of Kerry Golf Club provides a challenging course set against a backdrop of breathtaking views. The Lodge’s Tee Time Package makes it easy for guests to enjoy a round of golf, with a two-night stay, transfers to and from the golf course, a full Irish breakfast, and dinner in the Stables Brasserie included.

Culinary Delights

A stay at Sheen Falls Lodge is as much about savoring the flavors of Ireland as it is about enjoying its stunning landscapes. This summer, the culinary team has outdone itself with a brand-new Afternoon Tea menu. Guests can indulge in a three-tiered selection of sandwiches crafted from locally sourced ingredients, such as smoked salmon with red onion, capers, and horseradish on homemade Guinness brown bread. Freshly baked scones and an assortment of homemade pastries round out this delightful experience.
