About Sneem Hotel

Goldens Cove, Sneem, Ring of Kerry

We love to roll out the red carpet for special celebrations. The tranquil setting and beautiful scenery surrounding the Sneem Hotel offer the perfect backdrop for Kerry weddings. Music fills the lobby, candlelight dances … and with plenty of room for children to be comfortable too, Sneem Hotel creates a magical place to celebrate with friends and family.
Every detail – from tailoring your wedding menu to your individual party’s needs, to creating a luxurious honeymoon suite – will be taken care of to ensure the very best start to your happy ending.

You’ll relish our ballroom: high ceilings give a dramatic sense of space, seating up to 300 wedding guests for dinner and dancing. The function room opens onto a long terrace over the bay, perfect for a drinks reception or a breath of fresh air. The other side of the ballroom venue offers floor to ceiling windows with impressive views of the mountains. This wing of the Sneem Hotel features its own private entrance and bar.

From special activities to little touches, we’ll work with you for a dream wedding or celebration. For photos, try our gazebo on the cove, or our 22 acres of mature gardens. Surprise your wedding guests with a shoreline walk or a horseback ride the evening before your wedding. How about a champagne breakfast? Or inspire your wedding guests with a civil ceremony on the beach. Let’s create a celebration that reflects who you are. If you can dream it, we can do it. Your wedding day is our pleasure at Sneem Hotel.

My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams at Sneem Hotel. It was a very easy decision to hold our wedding at the Sneem Hotel, not only because of my strong family ties to Sneem but because of it's stunning location and spectacular views. From the moment we arrived, Louise and Nicola at the hotel were so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. When it was time to leave for the church, Louise was even there to give me some dutch courage for my nerves with a sneaky brandy and an umbrella! The food on the day of the wedding was out of this world. The residents bar was still hoping till the early hours after the reception meal with music and craic - the bar staff were very obliging in allowing a music and singing session run through to the early hours! When my husband and I returned to the Bridal Suite, we were overwhelmed by the unexpected little surprises that Louise at the hotel had done to the room. The whole day and weekend was absolutely perfect from start to finish and this was all down to Louise, Nicola and all the staff at the Sneem Hotel. Since the wedding, we have heard from our guests how amazing the Sneem Hotel was and how it was the best wedding people had been to and they will be returning. We thank Sneem Hotel for everything they did to make our day the best day EVER!! We totally recommend the Sneem Hotel as a wedding venue and can't rate it highly enough. We can't wait to return to Sneem next August for our 1st Year Anniversary. Sneem Hotel holds a very special place in our hearts!

Karen & Anthony My husband and I choose Sneem Hotel for our wedding reception in late December 2015 after considering a number of hotels in Limerick where we are from and in other areas of Kerry. The initial reason was the setting, the hotel is over looking the water with a mountain backdrop, in the picturesque village of Sneem with a beautiful church meaning endless photo opportunities. After a magical winter wedding we cannot recommend this venue highly enough, the hotel, the exceptional staff and food was all top notch. Louise, the wedding co-coordinator is a rock star. She went above and beyond for us and was so accommodating in every task from the planning and food tasting to the finer details and little surprises on the day. The food is what you expect of a 5 star restaurant and that came from everyone not just us, from our international guests to those who are involved in the industry itself. We received so many compliments, many guests had never been to Sneem or the hotel before and have since all vowed to return. We wanted a day that both of us & our guests would enjoy and some said it was the best wedding they had been to. Louise, Nicola, Louis & all the staff of Sneem Hotel - Thank you for making our whole experience perfect and a day we will truly remember forever.

Patrick & Josephine Lynam It’s hard to know where to start when reviewing this hotel..... There is so much I could say and it is all good things, but to keep this short and sweet I will only mention a few. My wife, Josephine, and I got married in Sneem and had our reception in Sneem Hotel on June 6th 2015. Nicola and her team were fantastic from the word go. They were very accommodating with any queries we had or alterations we wished to make along the way. Everything was arranged and set up perfectly when we arrived at the hotel the day before. There was absolutely nothing we had to worry about and after a brief meeting to finalise a few small bits with Louise all we had to do was sit back and relax. We both felt incredibly well looked after on our special day, everything went smoothly and the special touches along the way helped make the day even more perfect. We were delighted when so many of our guests remarked on the fantastic food and the beautiful setting of the hotel. For us it was truly a wonderful venue and we can only applaud for its excellence. Patrick & Josephine Lynam

Joanne O'Donovan We got married here on the 4th June 2016. The Sneem hotel was just amazing and made our day even more special. The location is stunning, we are both from West Cork and a lot of our guests had never been to Sneem before, they were just blown away by the place. On the run up to the wedding we were constantly in contact with Louise, who would always provide us with the best advice and nothing was ever too much bother. She's a real people person and would put you at ease straight away. The day off the wedding Louise and the staff really pulled it out of the bag. All the guests loved the food, the hotel looked amazing and the service was top class. It was the little touches and extras which I really loved and makes Sneem different from anywhere else. It was an epic day and I loved every minute of it!!
