“Super Apartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

We stayed here at Sneem apartments with our 10, 6 and 2 yr old boys. The apartment was super, really big size, nice spacious rooms and living space. Towels were changed and rubbish taken away twice in our 7 day stay. Dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge, iron and ironing board, clothes horse.....everything you could need. Only 4 sets of cutlery and plates etc though so had to buy some paper plates for the stay as we've 3 kids. We ate in the resteraunt twice and we found it really nice, lovely friendly staff. Boys made friends and played soccer till 10pm most nights on the green area which had a goalpost. Lots to do during the days as it's nicely located on the Ring of Kerry. Really peaceful place. Will definitely return.

Stayed July 2014

We booked the superior suite with a balcony. It was huge. The view was amazing and having our own balcony to sit out in the evening to look out over the sea and mountains was great. Plenty of toiletries and bathrobes too. I really didnt want to leave the room to go home. Its the perfect place to drive around the ring of kerry. The only thing i would say is that the bar staff could be a little friendlier but otherwise its an amazing hotel.

Room Tip: upgrade to a superior suite with a balcony. Its well worth the extra!

My only complaint about this place is the flakey air conditioning we had while staying there this week, phew it was hot, hot, hot! not only in our bedroom but breakfast, you could burn off the calories from the breakfast by just sitting there, not to mention the poor staff who were sweating their way through the service.

Having said that, there were no other complaints, the room was clean, the staff were helpful and tended to all our needs and requests. We had a massive family room (room 201) and a fridge, I know these are not available in all rooms. The setting is stunning, amazing - out of this world. We kayaked just yards down from the hotel, note although it says it is free, it costs 12.50 per hour, but worth it. I would come back to this hotel again.

Room Tip: 201 for a big family room

Pulled in to Sneem Hotel with my parents both 82 & 83yrs old respectively and in fine health my I add..Thank God! So we arrived on a Thursday sunny afternoon and asked the receptionist for a free upgrade just for the sake of it but to no avail. Both receptionists were European and very friendly as is now often the case with alot of Irish hotels; it isn't an issue with me but some people do tend to moan about it on some reviews expecting a few coleens and a cead mile failte etc. The room was a large family one...huge double bed and a single one. Room itself was very tidy...safe, ironing board, iron, small flat screen and bathroom with both shower and bath. Card works electricity and our room overlooked the car park on level one. Room was very quiet which suited my parents.Two large lifts to service the levels. Restaurant and bar were pleasing to the eye and opened out to a beautiful seated area overlooking the lake. This is definitely a family oriented hotel with lots of happy kids rolling down the green slopes in front of outdoor area. We were able to order ham and chicken sandwiches even though it was not on the evening menu since my parents had eaten earlier and were not hungary for a main. The barman was more than helpful in securing the sandwiches as we thought it may not be possible. Kudos! I had a wonderful Seafood Chowder creamy and packed with fish with homemade brown bread. The hotel orange setter was freely moving about and is a friendly dog only looking for a rub not to rob your food. They are holiday apartments to the left of the restaurant and there is a steady flow of people back and forth. Sleep was terrific and the breakfast was normal...self service and staff to get you teas and coffees. Try the Sneem black pudding..delicious. I would defo come back with my wife and kids so its a thumbs up from me if only I could be guaranteed the beautiful weather we got on our short stay..worth the risk though. About 1hr:45mins from Cork.

This was or first family break with or two children age 2 and under 1. To start Dinah and Esther on reception were particularly helpful as were all the dining room staff. Our room was very spacious, comfortable and clean even with 2 travel cots and lots of baby gear. Breakfast was satisfactory and evening meal tasty. The location is perfect for the beautiful Kerry beaches, Derrynane and beautiful scenic drives. I'm certain we will return.

Room Tip: ask for waterfront room and ask for a bed that is not zipp locked together for extra comfort.

What a beautiful place, with plenty of parking and walks around the rear of the lake. Our room overlooked the mountain view, I cannot say how beautiful our room (314) was. We asked for a twin and were given an enormous family room with a large double and a single bed. Great bathroom with large soft towels, plenty of shampoo, body lotion, bath gel. The best Hotel of our stay. The only negatives were the thin walls, we could hear lots of doors banging late at night, and a child running about on the floor above at midnight. Also the teeny tiny flat screen TV, it should have been much larger, for the size of the room. 'Fresh fruit' breakfast however was average, grapefruit and prunes were tinned and very sweet, and we had to make our own toast, the poached eggs and baked beans were fine - we have found this is the same with most hotels in Ireland.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking scenic view at rear. Car park as at front. Ask for a twin, you may get...
