Sneem is situated on the famous "Ring of Kerry" a route that encapsulates some of the best nature has to offer. The town is set at the head of the Sneem estuary between Kenmare and Waterville, with a little sheltered harbour at Oysterbed Pier, just opposite the Lodge.

Situated between the towns of Waterville and Kenmare on the Ring of Kerry, the picturesque village of Sneem with its colourful houses offers a variety of shops, pubs, restaurants and tea-rooms. The relaxed atmosphere and the variety of activities - from angling to golfing and walking - makes this a popular holiday destination. Killarney National Park with its unspoilt scenery, the stunning coast line all around the peninsula, the nearby towns of Waterville as well as Kenmare with easy access to the other sights of the Irish south west will give you plenty of opportunities of things to do in this beautiful part of Ireland!

Visitors can enjoy unspoilt nature, and a variety of activities from walking and cycling to fishing and golfing.

Unique features of Sneem are the old stone bridge, gaily painted houses and shops surrounding beautiful greens, a sculpture park, the "garden of the senses" park with a riverside wildlife area and a barbecue area, and the natural woodlands abound in the Parknasilla area.

Sneem is a favourite stop for motorists taking the Ring of Kerry Scenic Drive. Local facilities include grocery shops, art galleries, craft shops, pubs, restaurants, take-aways, taxi & bus services and coffee shops.

South Kerry is a unique region in Europe in terms of its geological, historical and cultural landscape. The Kerry Geopark seeks to preserve and promote the region's natural resources through geo-tourism. Visit their office on the south square in Sneem and find out about the diverse range of activities, attractions, festivals and events throughout the year - all of which highlight the unique geological, historical and cultural traditions of the region.

Perfect house and welcome

"Very welcoming and clean. The kind of property it was easy to relax in with a book on a wet day. Only 5 mins walk to the centre of Sneem where there are plenty of good eating places. Several good pub grub places. For more upmarket eating, also tried a restaurant called Sacre Coeur as well as the Sneem Hotel and Parknasilla. Maureen our host was lovely, could not do enough - because we were car-less this time she recommended a local taxi firm run by the Christian family who ferried us from Kerry airport, then to Dingle as well as locally at very reasonable rates. Definitely to be recommended."
