We stayed in the self catering apartments attached to the hotel. They very clean and well appointed with all mod cons. All apartments have a stunning view over the cove and the beautiful mountains. All staff from booking,reception,bar were both friendly and very helpful. The hotel and apartments are in a most beautiful location. The only very minor fault is that there is no pool,but that didn't detract from our visit to Sneem and all the attractions the area has to offer. For families the apartments are perfect !

Recently Stayed as part of a Family Break for 5 Nights 2 Adults and 3 .Arrival/Check in was efficent. Unfortnately we didnt get a room with a view just got the car park instead would have preferred the view of the side of the hotel where there is a Bar and Restaurant with a terrace and and Amazing view of the cove but the room was very spacious and modern, Accomadation staff were superb throught the stay. Breakfast was very good throughout buffet style but good. We had Dinner on three nights and we were not dissapointed enjoyed by all. Service staff for both breakfast and dinner were good. The hotel is well well suitatded to use a a base for going to all of the tourist spots and near by beaches. Only dissapointments were that there was no kids club or swimming Pool, the gym is a bit small and the bycycles are a bit over used and dated. Overall the hotel is very good but some of the finer details need to be looked at as for sure it would attract more families and repeat buisness. But we had a good time but would have had an even better time if the facilities were up to the standard of most other 4 star hotels offer nowadays

Room Tip: Ask for one with a view of the Cove would have been great waking up to it each morning rather than b...

Modern hotel, fabulous setting, friendly welcoming atmosphere, helpful staff, good food .... and the sun shone! Just to sit in the bar, terrace or dining room is a treat not to be missed. We spent 5 nights here and were very impressed. Would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel. Lovely beaches not too far away, good value holiday golf at Parknasilla close by and a bit of history at Derrynane.

Room Tip: A view of the mountains is worth it- stunning.

We stayed here the June bank holiday weekend, in the apartments. From the moment we entered we were taken back by the spaciousness and cleanliness. We spent 3 days touring the area and had beautiful weather . Sneem Hotel Apartments was a welcome sight every evening after touring during the day. The surrounding views were beautiful and gave this accommodation facility an air of tranquility.

Just back from a 5 day stay in the Sneem Hotel Apartments. Very friendly staff. The apartments were spotless. Very tastefully furnished. Everything was there that you could need. The rooms and bathrooms were large. The setting of the hotel was perfect. You can kayak right up to the town of Sneem, which is right around the corner from the hotel. Seven minute walk to Sneem. Make sure you go out in the kayaks when the tide is fully in and not going out. Saw a family wading through the mud because they timed the tide badly. Amusing as long as it wasn't me. Although his wife was shouting some helpful advice from the shore (when she wasn't falling about laughing, that is). The scenery is amazing and head down to Carroll's Cove and Derrynane Beach. Clean sand and clean water, perfect for a dip on a hot sunny day. Highly recommended.

We spent four nights here and a busy tour round Ireland. It was just what we wanted...clean relaxed, great bed, good pillows, great veiw from our balcony watching the tide come in and out and the weather change the hills. We upgraded ourselves to a seaveiw balcony room whcih was well worth the extra as you could open the doors and get fresh air..we are not fond of hot hotel rooms. The food was generlly good and breakfast on the deck area is recommended... the staff are happy to relocate you. A hidden gem.
