We had a two night stay. We found that 3 other couples were also saying, 8 people in total. We checked in and found a warm welcome. We did get offered an upgrade but at a premium. Room was clean and well presented. View was stunning.

Dinner on the first night was extremely disappointing. It was bland at best and did not show case this kitchen, none of the dishes worked. Might of been an off night, but we did expect so much more from a 4 star hotel. Breakfast, again typical Irish hotel cutting back trying to gain margin before clients satisfaction serving mass produced catering product. One of the best butchers in Kerry operates in Sneem, why not go with 4 Star quality?

Leisure facility are located in a dark, uninviting place, not sure but it's in the situated in the basement???? The Jacuzzi is tucked away in a very confined space, unventilated room and next to the stem room. Not good.

Sneem is a fantastic village, good lively bars and a couple of top notch restaurants. The Sneem Hotel, 4 out of 10. I could not recommend this hotel to a friend.

Stayed: September 2012, traveled as a couple

We had a flying visit to the hotel last weekend and we are already looking forward to going back. staff were genuinely friendly and engaging and the bar is comfortable and inviting. most rooms in the hotel share the same spectacular view of the "river" and mountains beyond and it is beautiful whatever time of day. Short walk to the village with its character filled bars and great food.

This is by far our favourite dog friendly hotel in Ireland. Unlike some other hotels where the dog friendly rooms are not as nice as the rest of the hotel, in Sneem Hotel they are the same as other guests' rooms. Fantastic staff, great food and Sneem is a lovely little place, the locals are so lovely and helpful, real Ireland. A perfect getaway spot. We will be back again soon. Being dog friendly is a massive bonus and must draw a lot of guests for that reason. Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: Look for one with a view of the lake!

Stayed here as part of a bank holiday week in October. 7 nights for the price of 5 which worked our at €355 for the week. The apartments are also dog friendly ideal for those of you who want to include your pet in your holidays. Apartments were lovely; warm, soundproof, very clean and spacious with comfortable matresses and lots of storage space. Fully equipped kitchen and bright living area with great view of sea and surrounding mountains. Great walks all directions and Kerry Way passes through Sneem too. Electricity, heating and cleaning costs included in price.

Room Tip: If you have a dog with you ask for ground floor apartment.

Stayed at the Golden Cove appartments connected to the Sneem Hotel, and they really are fantastic value for money. All necessary mod-cons provided, and two nights for four people was only €160. Fantastic, highly recommend!!

We selected this hotel for a weekend break with friends. The hotel and room was very comfortable, spacious and clean. The dining room has a lovely view and the breakfast was excellent. The hotel is ideally located on the ring of Kerry for sightseeing and walks. Kenmare is close by for lunch and a brouse around the shops. For us, the location of the hotel which was within walking distance of Sneem allowed us to eat in the local restaurants and enjoy the ambience of the local pubs.Eventhough there is no Leisure Centre, I think that not having at least an outdoor hot tub is a missed opportunity.
