“Superb Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

I Enjoyed a Excellent B&B service at the sneem hotel. The Staff were Friendly and Helpful. The rooms were very clean along with the rest of the hotel. I would recommend this Hotel highly and hope to vist there again. My Only Criticism is the Restraunt food was quite poor.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. My room was large and spacious and quite modern. The view from the window was stunning. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The food is good too. Absolutely no complaints. Very comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the hills.

Stayed at Sneem hotel for a family wedding. We had a family room that comfortably fitted a family of four. You could fit five with no challenges. The room was clean and tidy, if a little basic. Feedback from family was that the attached apartments were equally as good.

The menu in the restaurant was basic and the portions were on the large size. You wont starve here. The food itself is basic. It won't win awards, but is fine. Children have some good options and are well taken care of.

The staff are very friendly and service oriented. No request was a problem.

So while the hotel overall is basic, it is big, staffed by friendly people and a great base for wider trips around the ring of Kerry and beyond.

We had a weekend stay at the Sneem hotel. It was wonderful. The staff were very helpful and accommodating after there was a slight mix up in the booking, which was my own fault. The setting was tranquil and peaceful, there was lots to do. The facilities, though modern, are modest and unassuming, but the location and local staff make the place.
The dinner there was quite good, the starters were only ok, but the mains were excellent.
There was some good music in the bar afterwards. We really enjoyed it and it was very good value too especially for a bank holiday weekend.
Its also a dog friendly hotel, though they are restricted to certain areas, we were able to bring ours along which helped make the weekend even better.

Room Tip: The apartments are really for money and located right next to the hotel

I absolutely loved the Sneem Hotel. If you want to stay in a wonderful hotel with awesome service, I completely recommend it. The bartenders were awesome and very friendly. They definitely made this stay more enjoyable.

The sneem hotel did not live up to our expectations! We booked in advance and looked forward to our weekend at sneem hotel. The warm, welcoming photos on the website all looked great. At arrival the driveway and lobby have been quite impressive. Our room, however, has disappointed us very much. It was a big room but without any charm. A sofa without a pillow. A desk without a sheet of paper or pen. Empty shelfs. It had black stains in the bathtub etc. All in all not a 4 star demanding. "Little things make the difference" is not the hotel's slogan, unfortunately.
