“best hotel in kerry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2009

Having recently returned from a two night stay at the Sneem Hotei I must say that this hotel is a hiden gem! We stayed in the apartments which are top class with all facilities catered for - washing machine, fridge, kitchen, cooker, dining table, lounge, balcony and hot water! The location, the view and parking facilities are excellent. 5min walk from Sneem village which is a lovely quaint village with lots of lovely bars & restaurants to choose from. The hotel offer a lovely breakfast - buffet service with a huge range to offer. The waiting staff were all local, efficient and friendly/. Bar food served all day and a top class dinner served in their fine dining restaurant each evening. The bar and restaurant over look the bay with a balcony and seating area running along outside both rooms. The Lobby is bright & spacious and offers board games, internet and reading material to all guests. All Staff were attentive, friendly and very pleasent. The Management team were hands on and very welcoming. I would highly reccommend this hotel to all types of travellers - family, holiday, weekend break or touring the cork/kerry area - the ring of kerry, Killarney, derrynane bay, Valencia Island and the Skellig Rock on the door step. We returned refreshed and relaxed from our break and we will definately be back again.

I can't say enough good things about Sneem Hotel. It is a very modern, yet warm, hotel in the middle of the prettiest setting in and around Kerry. The rooms are enormous even by American standards. Loved the modern bathrooms. Very spa like! Waking up to the view of the river, hills, etc. was wonderful. The food was first class and the service was fantastic. A lovely waitress named Maura made every mealtime with the kids as easy as possible. She was so accomodating. I can't wait to return to Sneem Hotel.

Stayed for just one night but was so impressed with this hotel. Rooms are large and airy, modern decor throughout, bath in ensuite etc. Dinner and breakfast delicious. Service was swift and friendly. Location perfect, overlooking lake so scenery was breathtaking. great value for money too.

WE were a group of friends <3 couples> having a short break in kerry.We were delighted with Sneem hotel which is quite new yet blends so well with its stunning surroundings. The bedrooms were quite large and very comfortable with excellent ensuties.
The entrance lobby had a great fireplace which was a lovely area to gather for drinks in the evening.The staff were very welcoming and good fun.The dinner menu was quite varied and we all enjoyed our meals.The one area that was disappointing was the gym and jacuzzi,the sauna was okay .This aside we would all look forward to a return visit .Well done Sneem Hotel and continued success.

We had a fantastic time. Excellent water-front views that stretch out to an incredible mountain formation from all rooms. Great hiking all around the grounds in a very natural setting. Also kayaking and boating available. Restaurant is gourmet, also with beautiful views. Within an easy 5 min walk to the center of Sneem village, so you don't have to drive. Right on the Ring of Kerry. First-class hotel.
