We got married in this hotel a week ago. The staff made dreams we did not know we had come through, the day was faultless. Hotel as usual was spotless, rooms are huge and warm, Views amazing. Food again as usual was top class, We were so proud to have the ones we love the most with us in the Sneem hotel to celebrate a perfect day. Thank you to Nicola, Louis and Staff

We enjoyed a magnificent weekend stay here. Absolutely faultless. Staff friendly, hardworking and helpful. Location just wonderful - comfortable walking distance to the beautiful village of Sneem and amazing views from the back of the hotel. Room very spacious, comfortable and clean. Food at breakfast and dinner excellent. Lovely walks around hotel and beyond. Spacious well stocked bar. Cosy fire in lobby with plenty of seating areas in which to relax. Bathrooms spotlessly clean. Resident dogs adorable and so well behaved. Thanks to all in the Sneem Hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back facing the water and mountains most enjoyable - especially those with a walk out b...

We stayed here at the weekend for a family wedding. As regards the wedding meal the food was lovely and plentiful and the staff amazing - they were especially good to my little girl and there was plenty of staff on hand if you needed anything. The function room is beautiful and the little room on the way into the function room with big comfy couches is a lovely touch.
We stayed in an apartment - 6 adults and 1 child and even thought there was so many of us we found we still had plenty of space and we were very comfortable. There were 2 ensuite rooms and the other room had a bathroom right next to it. Apartment was very clean and warm and we had a beautiful view from our balcony. The fridge was broken but on this occasion we ate out every day so it didn't bother us, I'm sure had we brought it to the lovely staff's attention they would have sorted it asap anyway. I would have liked if they had included shampoo and conditioner and shower gel in the bathrooms however as although it was self catering people tend to forget this stuff when away. I forgot conditioner and another family member in another apartment forgot shampoo. I find normally when we go self catering this stuff is included.
The location is absolutely out of this world! There are some lovely walks around the hotel and the village of sneem itself is gorgeous. This is a really peaceful place and perfect for a family break or a romantic getaway - for some rest and relaxation. There is a real laid back and cozy atmosphere in this hotel which we loved!
One negetive I'm afraid is the price of breakfast at €15 per head! My family and I found this quite shocking but overall we found the hotel to be very good value, the price we paid for the accommodation was so reasonable.
Thank you very much Sneem Hotel, we will def be back.

Myself and my fiance stayed here just last weekend for one nite as a treat as we were engaged a year so we wanted some place relaxing. It's a very relaxed atmosphere in the hotel and the village itself. We had booked a deluxe room wit seaview which looked fantastic on website but when we got there the room was freezing cold and it was huge so it took ages to heat the place. We did however have a very comfy bed to be fair but a small table and 2 chairs and one small couch at bottom of bed did not make the room look very much like a deluxe 4* room. The decor wasn't anything wow either. The bathroom was tiny too. The room was so big and empty lookin it made me think why they didn't just make the bathroom bigger. The carpet was lifting in some areas near walls. I was goin to use the bath mat the following morning and there was small hairs on it which I found not so pleasant. Also in most hotels u get 2 free small bottles of water left in room for u so i was surprised when i found there was none in ours. Only thing I found worth the price of the room was the view out our window. Stunning location and lovely staff but was disappointed.

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.

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.
