Sneem is perhaps the best lunch spot for tour bus and tourist alike when taking the Ring of Kerry from Killarney. I've done this a couple of times now, and Sneem seems to be the spot that can handle large quantities of tourists all at once. This was my first time at Breems Riverside Café, and, even though jammed with... More

This family fun bistro serves regular food. My family and I had fish and chips which was very good and good value. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Their lemon meringue is homemade and exceptional, I am told. We will definitely return.

We got there on a Sunday afternoon, around 2.30. They had been very busy with the hordes of coaches and we had to wait for a table. So perhaps they should be forgiven for not having time to cook the chips properly, tasteless fish and generally being below par. However I assume the Seafood chowder was a standard recipe and...

We were on our scenic drive around the Ring of Kerry. Sneem is a quaint little town where a lot of the tour buses stop to let out their patrons for a little food and shopping. With that said the restaurants in Sneem get a lot of waves of customers. Riverside is a small little bistro right on the river.... More

This is a decent pitstop to refuel when travelling around the ring if you're stopping to explore the picturesque village of Sneem. We had a 10-month old with us and the staff were very accommodating; they brought him a nice high-chair and a bowl of vegetable soup and mash, which he wolfed down. Thanks folks!

On our return route we decided we would return to the cafe for lunch. I had the open topped prawn sandwich which was very tasty, th rest... More

Our tour bus only stopped for 45mins in Seem . We both enjoyed a great prawn salad with soda bread. Friendly service. We wished we could have stayed longer for dessert as the cakes and lemon meringue tart look soo good.
