This is definitely not a 4 star hotel,bar like a canteen,breakfast just chaotic,had to fight for a table 2 mornings in a row,rooms are lacking character and no shelves in the bathroom,had to put everything on the floor,tea,coffee making facilities were dirty and shabby,more like a 2 star hotel at its best!!!

First class service throughout. Stayed in an apartment with other family members. Spacious and very well equipped. Staff always helpful and courteous and although hotel was very busy, especially at breakfast, they served with great efficiency and cconsideration. Family christening party, purpose of stay, was conduvcted in same exemplary fashion.

Room Tip: Appartment very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Excellent views over mountains.

Stayed in this hotel about 4 years ago or so and still remember it till this day. Beautiful hotel. Gorgeous location. Our room was fabulous and staff were lovely and friendly. Ate in the restaurant in the hotel both nights during our stay and the food was gorgeous. Had the steak and was really good. Sneem village is a really lovely place with a air of old world irish charm. Nice walks around the back of hotel which my elderly granny really enjoyed. Great place!!!

Everything is fantastic in this hotel. First of all the staff is kind, professional, cooperative and absolutely excellent.
Location is a "dream location". Rooms are spacious, clean, confortable. Rooms with sea view are perfect and lovely.
Breakfast is excellent, as well as the ratio quality / price.
Our dream is to spent here a full week next time !

Room Tip: Rooms with sea view: absolutely lovely !

Red, the resident Irish Setter, welcomed me, and I also met a year old Beagle and had a great romp. It was good to have space to roam, and the water at hand for a swim. I have never stayed in a hotel before, and was a bit worried about being left on my own, when my owners went out to eat, but the carpets were soft to lie on and they gave me a chew stick. They raved about the dinner, She said she had the best sirloin steak she had ever eaten, and melon with lemon sorbet and tarte au citron, and pronounced them delicious, but she didn't think to bring me any back. They also said the bed was very comfortable, and firm (I am not allowed up) and the staff friendly, and it was clean. They said they would have liked a fridge or minibar in the room, otherwise it was well equipped, with a hairdryer, iron, and tea/coffee making facilities. She is not too keen on UHT milk, though. Her only other quibble was that the bin in the bathroom had no lid. I don't mind that. They said the breakfast was pretty good. Lots of fruit, and croissants and different kinds of bread. They made her porridge when she asked, and it came with cream and syrup. He had the full Irish twice, but he did not bring me back any bacon or sausages. We all liked the Ring of Kerry, and I especially liked the beaches and the Glanbeam garden on Valentia Island where the lady said it was ok for me to be off the lead.

Room Tip: If you have a dog they put you on the ground floor on the left so you can use the side entrance.

Sneem Hotel is lovely and really well priced for the standard. The room was fabulous and we were lucky enough to get a lake view room as well. Location is great, very close to Sneem town. Breakfast was nice too with plenty of options.

Myself, my partner and our 3 small children (aged 4, 2 and 1) stayed in a 2 bed apartment for 5 nights in July. It was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. We ate in the hotel a few times and the food and service were fantastic. We loved it so much we went back for a further 5 nights later in July (which again was wonderful) and we can't wait to return! Other reviews have described the Sneem Hotel as a hidden gem - I agree wholeheartedly!
