Irish art and artisans at the lodge
At Sheen Falls Lodge we’ve a long-standing tradition of collaborations with local crafts people. You’ll find the lodge filled with beautiful bespoke pieces, hanging on our walls, and gracing our public areas, bedrooms and suites. We hope you’ll enjoy finding all these wonderful Irish pieces that that have crafted with love in Kerry.
You’ll meet Christine Bowen’s art as soon as you check-in. Her mural adorns our reception wall as well as a fabulous botanical mural in The Falls restaurant. Drawing on Kenmare for inspiration, you’ll find this local artist sprinting’s hanging throughout the hotel. Learn more about Christine here christinebowenart.com
Master cabinetmaker Joop Duyn and his son, Adrian have worked closely with Sheen Falls Lodge since we first opened our doors. Their bespoke work is visible all around the lodge – from the gorgeous mahogany bookcase in our recently refurbished study to the presentation cases for our house smoked salmon – but it’s our mysterious petit-four chocolate box in The Falls Restaurant that seems most beloved of all by our guests!
With a master chocolatier working close by, it made sense to share his delectable treats with our guests. The beautiful welcome chocolates you’ll find in your rooms are handcrafted by Frenchman, Benoit Lorge, who calls Kenmare home.
The wonderful Muckross Pottery in Killarney National Park created all the pretty coffee cups in our bedrooms, as well as the rustic breakfast buffet crockery. These specially commissioned pieces are blue, inspired by the water surrounding the lodge.
Sheen Falls Lodge gin
Collaborating with the local Beara Distillery, we’re proud to offer guests our signature Sheen Falls Lodge gin. Crafted with distinctive botanicals from the estate, it’s a firm favourite with our guests.
All of our beautiful leather menu folders and bedroom directories have been fashioned by hand at Muckross Binding, using traditional methods practised at the bindery in Killarney National Park.
