The Sheen Falls Lodge in Ken­mare, has re­cently fin­ished a two- year re­fur­bish­ment pro­gramme which in­cludes two new suites, the Os­cars and the Sig­na­ture Suite.

They were de­signed by Ital­ian in­te­rior de­signer and ho­tel spe­cial­ist Hugo da Silva along with Meitheal Ar­chi­tects ( in­te­grat­ing PLM ar­chi­tects). The suites now com­plete the re­fur­bish­ment of all 66 rooms.

Da Silva worked with lo­cal sup­pli­ers to cre­ate be­spoke fur­nish­ings. Tac­tile cot­tons and rich vel­vets are com­bined with tweeds and soft light­ing to cre­ate a time­less feel to the rooms. The larger Os­cars Suite fea­tures a king bed, pri­vate dress­ing space and en suite bath­room, with French doors in the sit­ting area lead­ing out to a pri­vate ter­race over­look­ing the spec­tac­u­lar Sheen Wa­ter­fall.

The suites cost ¤ 1,000 per night for the Os­cars suite and ¤ 675 for the Sig­na­ture Suite. The name comes from a Heron who comes ev­ery sum­mer and was named Os­car by the staff.
