Taking place in the 5-star hotel over the course of three weekends, the Wine Academy series is a journey of learning and discovery.
Led by the hotel’s expert food and beverage team, including Sommelier Jerome Torque, the Wine Academy is a chance for budding connoisseurs to explore the fascinating world of wines and to discover their own individual tastes and interests.
The Wine Cellar at Sheen Falls Lodge is a haven for wine enthusiasts, boasting over 10,000 bottles with 800 wine varieties from 18 countries around the world.
Each of the weekend Wine Academy events will cover a different topic offering a unique experience to guests each time:

Begin each day with a delicious breakfast served in the picturesque The Falls Restaurant before embarking on course itinerary throughout the afternoon. A private group dinner with accompanying wines will then be served from 7.30pm on Saturday evening, before departure on Sunday.
The unique Wine Academy events are each priced at €599 in total based on 2 people sharing a Classic Room overlooking Kenmare Bay or €435 in total for single occupancy.
