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.
Sneem Hotel in County Kerry holds a license as a civil ceremony venue and has the capacity to seat from 30 to 320 of your friends for the wedding ceremony. There is a number of areas of the hotel where the ceremony can take place, one of them is a house down by the Waterfront within the grounds of the hotel, it caters for 30 people, it is quite the romantic spot. Our experienced Wedding Team will assist you with careful planning of all aspects of your wedding from the civil ceremony through to the wedding reception afterwards.

We could not have been more impressed
My husband and I couldn't have been more impressed by the amazing service that the Sneem Hotel provided for our wedding last year. There was absolutely nothing that Louise hadn't thought of, and she went above and beyond in her dedication to the job. My husband was ill in hospital on the run up to the big day, but again, Louise came to the rescue, and despite the fact that we were unable to pop in and finalise details in the final days, she had looked after every single detail, so we didn't need to worry. The food was exceptional, and our only difficulty was choosing what to put on the menu, as each of the options we tasted were divine! The service, staff and location were everything we hoped for and more, and we would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to any other couples looking for their perfect reception venue!Sent on 19/07/2019

We were really impressed
From our initial correspondence with the hotel, we were really impressed. Louise was highly professional, supportive and friendly and most of all a fantastic listener. She was always willing to take on board all of our ideas and make them happen! Our visit to the hotel in November confirmed our admiration for the place, the hotel and the staff. Everyone was all so welcoming. Louise was always only an email or phone call away. She was a fountain of knowledge & resources, & always recommending local people & services( Marie-makeup artist, Michelle-hairdresser, Fiona-flowers, Lisa-photographer; 5 star’s- all fantastic ladies whom I would highly recommend for any special occasion). Lisa, our photographer, also a member of staff at the hotel, was always at the end of an email. She is fun, professional and passionate about her photographic, which is evident in her work! Unfortunately, Louise was unavailable for our wedding day but her colleague Nicola filled in for her perfectly. Ladies, we cannot thank you enough. No personal touches went unnoticed by us, our guests or our children (our beautifully decorated bridal suite, personalised memory box, congratulations from an introduction to the hotel owner, restaurant decorations for our meal, waitresses finding toys for children (to name but a few). From the bottom of our hearts, Go raibh míle buíochais, Áine & Rob xx” See you for our 1st AnniversarySent on 19/07/2019

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!Sent on 09/11/2018
