This month Kenmare’s award-winning five-star retreat, Sheen Falls Lodge, proudly unveils its new luxury Oscars Suites, marking the completion of the hotel’s two year refurbishment project.
The newest additions to the hotel, set in the breath-taking surroundings of the Kerry countryside, are two elegant and spacious suites – the Oscars Suite and Signature Suite – each boasting unrivalled views over the cascading Sheen Waterfalls from the suites’ private terraces.
Leading interior designer Mr Hugo da Silva, along with Meitheal Architects (integrating PLM architects), created a unique look and feel in each suite, delivering the warm, serene and luxurious finishes that are characteristic of Sheen Falls Lodge.
Soft cottons and rich velvets were combined with tweeds and soft lighting to create a timeless feel throughout the Suites, creating a synergy with the surrounding waterfall, woods, and parkland. Hugo and the design team once again worked with local suppliers to create bespoke furnishings for each of the suites, including curtains by Fabulous Fabrics in Ballyvourney (Co. Cork), basket recycling bins crafted by Eamon Tobin and original artwork from a local Kenmare artist, Christine Bowen.
The larger Oscars Suite features a king bed, private dressing space and ensuite bathroom, with French Doors in the sitting area leading out to a private terrace overlooking the spectacular Sheen Waterfall.
Commenting on the opening of the new luxury suites, interior designer, Hugo da Silva said: “The design team was determined to respect the existing architecture and maintain the connection with the magnificent natural surroundings of Sheen Falls Lodge. Softness, warmth and luxury took priority when choosing materials, fabrics and colours, all of which combine to create a timeless, elegant and comfortable feel.”
General Manager of Sheen Falls Lodge, Mr Seamus Crotty said, “The opening of the Oscars Suites marks the exciting conclusion of our extensive two-year refurbishment programme and we are confident that it further cements Sheen Falls Lodge’s reputation as more than just a five star property. We look forward to welcoming new and familiar guests to Sheen Falls Lodge to experience these beautiful new additions.”
The Oscars Suite is priced from €1,000 per night and the adjoining Signature Suite is priced from €640 per night.
