So we went to Sneem at the end of April for a 2 night mini moon getaway after the excitement of our big day. First of, the location. We were beginning to think we got lost its so far past Killarney but the drive is amazing!
The hotel itself is spotless, we got upgraded to s superior room for the occasion which was fabulous! Great views from our room over looking the bay. The bed was super comfy, bathroom spotless and very spacious.
We had breakfast both mornings, buffet style, food was lovely and fresh! Only problem I had was they only had white bread!!
Dinner was AMAZING!! Fabulously presented and great portion size. Dessert was just YUM!
Staff were very friendly, welcoming and eager to help out with directions etc.
Places to go and see;
Daniel O Connells House, Caherdaniel beach, Sneem village itself is about a 5 minute walk with beautiful little cafes, a fab bakery and lots of lovely walks!

Would definitely go back

Room Tip: Room with a bay view!

The hotel has very picturesque setting and its only short walk from the village centre. Rooms are spacious and clean but you have to pay extra for the view. Staff was polite and helpful. There was life music in the hotel bar.

I brought a group of students here for 4 nights. It was delightful. It was a serene setting with a super friendly staff. Downtown was very pretty also. This is very conveniently placed on the Ring of Kerry, making it a good home base if you want to visit many places. I don't hesitate to recommend.

We were looking forward for our stay at the Sneem Hotel, the only hotel (instead of B&Bs) during our trip through Kerry.
We were quite disappointed:
- the room could have been better (3 spider happily living their lives on the ceiling, no door for the safe)
- disappointing breakfast (overcooked eggs and bacon) (we didn't try the dinner)
- the bikes we wanted to use were inoperable (flat tires, non working breaks, loose handlebars)
For the price we paid, we were unhappy. The next time we will take a B&B.
At least, the "hoteldog" was cool.

the superior sea view room is worth the extra fee. you certainly want to wake up with a killer view 1st thing in the morning. though the hotel may need to update their website as there are little things like robes and slippers one may expect as it was specially mentioned as one of those little touches that make them special but were in fact not provided and was told that they do not supply those anymore. i could have packed my own slippers then. meal was good and filling especially after a long trek. the hotel was near the village so one has the option to have their meals outside and get additional supplements as well like water, toiletries, etc. the directions though in some of the walks brochure are unclear. we got lost a few times. better to go there when there is sun as during rainy/foggy season, the view may not be fully appreciated. the staff are quite accommodating especially those from the bar and restaurant. a piece of advice though. better tell the housekeeping staff to knock on the door and wait for response before opening the doors. one staff did knock but didn't wait for a response. the other one didn't bother knocking and just went in. and 6 soft pillows for 2 people is certainly a big plus. and yes, i have to mention red, the hotel's resident redhead. such a sweet mutt.
