Local Tourist Attractions

If you’re up for an adventure, try one of the many outdoor activities available in Sneem. Surf, water ski, wind surf or scuba dive. Paddle a canoe, or fish in the sheltered harbour. Take a short drive along the spectacular coastline and visit white sand beaches for swimming and horse riding, such as Derrynane, Caherdaniel and Dromquinna.

Nearby, Ireland’s tallest mountain, Carrauntuohill towers above the rugged mountain range of the MacGillycuddy Reeks, offering challenges for walkers of any fitness level.

For a more leisurely day, stroll through the lively town of Sneem – only a short walk from the hotel. The village is composed of two squares, North and South, joined by a bridge over Sneem River. The town is full of places to eat, drink, and shop. Pick up the makings of a picnic lunch in town, and head out for a day of walking or hiking. Sneem’s location between the mountains and sea mean there are plenty of forest, river, seaside, and estuary walks to enjoy.

If you happen to visit us on a Tuesday, don’t miss the craft fair in Sneem. On Sundays, you might catch our festive barbecue here at Sneem Hotel, where locals and visitors gather for an afternoon of live music and savoury food.

Or maybe you’d rather just read a book and relax, or completely unwind in the hot tub or sauna. At Sneem's 4 Star Hotel, you’re never far from the inspiring, challenging, relaxing, or peaceful.
