A lovely pub with excellent food. Ate there several times and whilst all the food was very good the burgers were so good that I may return to Sneem just to have one!

Lady behind the counter was most helpful in finding us a place to stay for the night. Called half the town. And the food was great too! We came in hungry and the traditional fish and chips were perfect.

We had dinner at the Blue Bull while we where travelling around Ireland. I guess it's the place you would go if you really wanted to immerse yourself in an Irish atmosphere. The food was lovely and the woman that served us saved our lives: me and my friends really needed a place to sleep for the night and she... More

We had dinner here with our boys and visiting friends as came recommended on local reviews and we were staying at Parknasilla so it was close. This would be what most would look for in a traditional pub/restaurant and the menu has some great choices. Food was excellent and service attentive.

It is not cheap though for pub food , average meal is between 10-13 Euros . Great atmosphere... More

The menu was large and catered to all tastes - fish, mussels, hamburgers etc, or a light lunch such as a sandwich. I chose vegetable soup and soda bread with a glass of beer (7.10€). Their restroom was spotless.

We had a drink and a meal at the blue bull. The staff behind the bar were very friendly and welcoming. A nice varied menu with a good selection. If you're ever in sneem its well worth popping in for a bite to eat and a drink.(so to some the blue bull up) Good food good drink good price.
