My husband and I LOVED this hotel. We stayed two nights in a huge, comfortable room on the ground floor with a view of the cove. The staff are so friendly and helpful and full of chat. The food is the best I have ever tasted and of course the service is excellent. The terrace is wonderful and you can totally relax there and watch the tide come in. Beware of the midges though late in the evening!! The staff will warn you but its worth the odd bite to sit there.
It is the most relaxing place I have ever been. The ring of Kerry is stunning. You can't help but take hundreds of photos. We spent the whole day driving around it. Don't miss the gap of Dunloe where you can take a jaunt with a pony and trap up through the mountains and past the lakes.
The Sneem hotel is the perfect place for a totally relaxing break. Well done to all the staff for making it so perfect. I can't wait to go back there.

We had a wonderful time at Sneem Hotel. We stayed for one night and had a great room with a view. We would have stayed longer but had already booked our next hotel so unfortunately couldn't enjoy the hotel longer. The food was great, the people were helpful and the rooms were outstanding. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed 15 nights in Ireland and stayed at all 4 star hotels and this was by far the best!!

Stayed for a weekend at the Sneem Hotel. Nice location overlooking part if the bay which is tidal. There is nice decking outside the bar area for sitting and enjoying a drink and the scenery; but aside from the small sloping grass area down to the waterside, there aren't much grounds to the hotel. I have to say that the staff were lovely. Always professional but in a more relaxing down to earth way which was refreshing. The hotel itself I would describe as functional i.e. clean and does what it says on the tin - nothing outlandish but if you can get a water view, it makes up for any extra's you might have been hoping for. No pool but there is a jacuzzi down on the basement floor and a tiny tiny gym area - would have been better designed to overlook the bay but they are located in a no-windowed room on the basement floor. The jacuzzi unfortunatley was out of order when we were there but I am sure this is just a temporary glitch. The hotel provides bikes free for guests which we availed of and its a great idea. They are good quality mountain bike too so made for a very enjoyable afternoon!

AMAZINGNESS !!!!!!

The owner and staff of SNEEM HOTEL were so amazing when we recently stayed in Co Kerry. Our son and his new bride were married there and had the most wonderful wedding anyone could ever have! It seemed like they adopted the bride & groom and their families for the entire occasion. They were just so welcoming, so professional. Each member of staff knew all of us by name and took on board our every request and was even a step ahead of us as to our needs and all with a smile and willingness to assist.

The attention to detail was completely above and beyond the call of duty. In all our years we have never experienced anything like this!

The hotel is immaculately clean, bright, cheerful and luxurious with scenery to take your breath away. It is set on a site looking out to the mountains and the sea. With trekking, walking, cycling, canoeing and other activities arranged. Some of our group played golf near by.

The food at the Sneem Hotel is of grade ‘A’ restaurant standard. Simply mouth watering. Fine dining for dinner, lunch and even breakfast. Even now I am salivating just thinking about it! Wonderful spacious rooms all looking out onto the gardens, the sea & the mountains. Ahhh.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away from a busy, noisy life. The area is so tranquil and yet only a walk away from the pubs and eating houses in the nearby picturesque village of Sneem.

We intended to keep it a big secret just for ourselves but that would be so selfish. The place is too beautiful! Our son Greg & our new daughter in law Jennifer are over the moon with delight to have had their wedding in the amazing Sneem Hotel on the 27th. May 2010.

Many, many thanks to Louis Moriarty and his fabulous team.


Very sincerely,

Tom and Mabel O’Keeffe.

This is a lovely hotel. It is modern so it does lack the character of an old hotel but it is very clean and the beds are so comfortable. We booked through booking .com and got a very good rate. We requested a sea view but we got a suite instead at no extra cost. The staff are all local ( I was told by the receptionist) and they are extremely friendly. It is so close to the village but dont expect any mad nightlife there. Sneem is very quite and peaceful.

You are sure to be amazed by everything at the Sneem Hotel. The people, the gorgeous hotel, the food and of course the beer. Everyone we came in contact with (front office manager and attendant, housekeeper, waiter and bartender) were professional and attentive. Each staff member seemed to take on many roles and did so without a hitch.

I will be sure to stay at the Sneem Hotel next time I visit Irleand. This was my first trip to Ireland and won't be the last.
