We stayed in the River Lodge after walking from Caherdaniel and were politely received into a wonderful house. The hosts were very nice, the service excellent, the room a dream! A very comfortable, giant bed for relaxing. The River lodge is a little outside of the city center, which makes it calm, but at the same time you can reach... More

My friend and I left Killarney on route to Sneem and got absolutely lashed on. We were greeted with a friendly smile at the door of the river lodge where all our wet gear was dried out for us for the next day. Lovely spacious room and a fantastic breakfast. It's why b&bs are unique to stay in. Only a... More

We only stayed for two nights, but Sneem River Lodge surely was the best B&B on our trip. Rooms were beautiful, breakfast delicious and the owners extremely friendly and helpful. It's the perfect place for trips on the Ring of Kerry! Cheers to the owners lovely son, who gave us great recommendation for our ferry-ride… Thumbs up! Lisa and Hanno... More

We spent 2 weeks driving the west coast of Ireland. Wonderful trip. We stayed at the Sneem River Lodge for 1 night. We arrived in the late afternoon and as it was not peak travel season, the place seemed empty. We were given a room in the back - overlooking the backyard (chicken coop). Didn't think anything of it. Walked... More

House is in very good shape, rooms are very well equipped and clean, beds are nice. We had a good sleep and a very nice breakfast. The location is great, it is actually only 300 mtrs from... More
