“What a wonderful Easter Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2011

We stayed at the Sneem Hotel for the Easter weekend and really had a ball from start to finish. For a family of 5 the 2 bed-room apartment was a great option - loads of space, bright, fresh, and the comfiest bedding I've ever had in a hotel ! The kids never stopped running around at 100 miles an hour for the whole weekend and were so well looked after (and tolerated) by the staff in the hotel. That is probably the genius of the place - the hotel is really well run and immaculately maintained but retains the charm of Kerry by providing a really relaxed atmosphere. The Easter Egg hunt threw the woods was a real adventure for small kids and my only regret is being pipped at the post in the Dad's sack race!

We visited the Sneem hotel on Friday 20th May. We were in Kerry for the JFK challenge. It is a 50 mile/80 km walk organised by geopark in Sneem. It is based on a walk designed for the US marines by JFK. My husband is the hardy one I was after a bit of luxury myself.
We had dinner in the restaurant the first night. I had roast lamb ,it was okay. The potatoes and veg were nice. The breakfast was good with lots of fresh fruit, pastries and the full irish with good strong tea. My husband started the walk at 5am and finished at 9pm. We had a pint in town and it was 10pm by the time we were ready for dinner. The kitchen was supposed to close at 9 or 9.30 but they cooked him a delicious steak with chips and a lovely fresh salad. We sat and looked over the fabulous view from the big picture windows in the bar.
The rooms in the Sneem hotel are excellent. Big 6foot bed, very good quality mattress and linens. The shower is american standard, very powerful. Tea and coffee facilities, flat screen TV. The room is pleasantly decorated with proper black-out curtains for those of us who like a lie in but lovely and bright when the curtains are open. I cannot rate the room highly enough.
They have the dog frindly rooms on the ground floor and our very well behaved pooch appreciated not having to go in the lift as I am sure did the other guests in the hotel.

Myself & my partner booked a one-night stay on Saturday (May 7) as we wanted a quick break away from home (Cork) that offered value for money & a peaceful location. The Sneem Hotel turned out to fit the bill perfectly. I paid 80 euro for a mountain view room - we deliberated before checking in about asking to be changed to a sea-view but decided that was a little cheeky & didn't bother. We were delighted when we got to our room (214) to disover that we had been given a beautiful bright spacious room overlooking the water - the view was stunning. The hotel was particularly quiet this weekend partly due to the weather being horrendous & partly because the previous two weekends had been bank holidays , and I thought it was a lovely touch that we were automatically upgraded because better rooms were available.
We had hoped to avail of the the free bike hire but this wasn't possible given the heavy rain. Instead we spent the day relaxing in the hotel & opted to have dinner in the restaurant that evening. We found the staff to be friendly & helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We did find the restaurant to be very pricey (set menu) & would opt to eat in the bar next time.
This is a great place to go for peace, tranquility & comfort in beautiful surroundings without having to spend a fortune. We will definitely be back.

We have just returned from a second trip to this relatively new hotel and it just gets better and better. It has become another favourite for us in the south of Ireland and we cannot wait to return. So what made our visit so special? Well...........we were due to arrive late so rang ahead to see if they would keep two salads for us to eat in the bar. No problem! The minute we arrived they were served up with aplomb and were so appreciated! Our room faced the sea and the view is SUPERB; the restaurant has fabulous food and we were lucky with the weather so were able to have lunch out on the fabulous deck overlooking the sea. We practically had it to ourselves! The staff is very pleasant and friendly and nothing is a problem. The owner is low-key which I appreciate and he chats away easily to the guests BUT is not intrusive; the resident red setter, Red, is a welcome addition and adds to the fact that this 4-star hotel does not take itself too seriously. The rooms are very well-appointed and are very, very comfortable. The village of Sneem is dotey and within easy walking distance. Check out the pharmacy.......a blast from the distant past so hope it never changes! This hotel is a real find. It looks like a typical celtic tiger era new build but really is so much more. We love it and would highly recommend it to anyone. There are great walks in the area too, some from the front door! The staff will help you with these. Enough said! Enjoy!

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very comfy and well-appointed. The staff is just excellent.....friendly & helpful!! Had a very nice walk along their nature trail and enjoyed the bar / lounge restaurant for lunch. All in all, will recommend this hotel to others who may be staying in the Sneem area....

Just back from 3 days at this hotel over Easter in one of the apartments. We ( parents and 3 kids - 2,5 and 6) all had a fantastic weekend.The hotel catered for all of us with plenty of space and amenities for the kids ( games room, trails, green areas etc) and staff that didn't mind kids tearing around so mum and dad could relax.

The service and food were very good, the apartment bright and clean and weather brilliant. All in all an excellent weekend - we will most definitely go back!

Just returned from my few days in sneem hotel.If you ever want to have a nice few days away then this is the place to go. Never have i met such nice people than the staff i met at the Sneem Hotel. The rooms were enormous. The views spectacular.But its the staff that really impressed me. they could not have been nicer. From the girls on reception to the bar staff and waitresses to Nicola the manageress and even the owner himself. I'M GOING TO GO BACK THERE AS SOON AS I CAN. DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND GO THERE . YOU WONT BE SORRY
