Allmusic.com gave Shepherd Moons a 4 1/2 star review:

Calling Shepherd Moons a near carbon copy of Watermark puts it quite mildly. Like Watermark, Shepherd Moons opens with the title track, a calm instrumental, has another brief instrumental titled after a Dora Saint book smack in the middle (“No Holly for Miss Quinn”), and concludes with a number incorporating a striking uilleann pipes solo, “Smaointe….” In general, Enya’s own musical style and work remains the same, again assisted on production by Nicky Ryan and with lyrics by Roma Ryan. Shepherd Moons does have one key factor that’s also carried over from Watermark — it’s quite good listening.
