Three weeks ago today, on Saturday 11th August 2018, 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 in the beautiful village of Sneem but because of its stunning location and spectacular views. From the moment we arrived on the Thursday before the wedding, the wedding coordinators Louise and Nicola and all the staff at the hotel were so friendly, welcoming and accommodating. All we had to do was unpack the car and they took care of everything that needed to be organised before the big day. Our guests started arriving on the Friday, and all were complimentary on the hotels warm, friendly staff and top quality food and drink. The weather was beautiful on the Friday before the wedding and all our guests enjoyed sitting outside relaxing taking in the beautiful views that the Sneem Hotel has to offer as well as enjoying the craic with friends and family. The morning of the wedding, the weather was not on our side however Louise and the staff were absolutely wonderful, they did everything in their power to ensure that it would be the most amazing day and it was. 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! Nicola and Louise helped me into the wedding car supplied by Bertie - who was so professional and helpful before and after the church ceremony ensuring that my dress did not get wet and helped protect the photographers camera in the rain after our little pit-stop in Riney's Bar. The church ( St. Michael's) was decorated beautifully by Fiona from the Windowbox in Sneem village. The church ceremony was wonderful, such a beautiful and happy ceremony by Father Liam O' Brien who was so calm, friendly and made the whole wedding memorable. When we returned from the church and photographs, we could see that our guests had been well looked after with a selection of canapes, scones, prosecco, and music. The food on the day of the wedding was out of this world, excellent fast and efficient service from all the staff and I must say a very talented chef! No glass was left empty. Louise and Nicola had decorated the function room and lobby for us with their own special personal touches going the extra mile. 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 and staff of the hotel had done to the room. The day after the wedding, we continued our celebrations in Riney's pub, which again we were all looked after with an amazing BBQ and music supplied by Don and Brid Riney. We returned back to the Sneem Hotel after Riney's and once again enjoyed the chat and craic at the residents bar till the early morning. 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.

Louise and the staff at the Sneem Hotel are so on top of every detail. From our first meeting, to the day of our wedding, for our outdoor ceremony, and reception, to the BBQ the day after, they were absolutely brilliant! They made us feel really special and we could not have wished for any more. Louise had great ideas and everything worked really well. The room was lovely and they had several really nice surprises for us on our wedding day. All our guests loved the hotel, and had many compliments on how they were treated by the very helpful and friendly staff. The food was super! The service was excellent! We cannot say enough good things on how we felt, and if you’re planning your wedding we highly recommend you spend a few nights here and book the Sneem Hotel for your festivities.

Booking the Sneem Hotel with it's absolutely stunning picture perfect scenery was the best decision my husband and I made about our wedding. From our first meeting with Louise we knew that we were onto a winner. A nicer more genuine Lady would be hard to find. We got married in December 2017 and words cannot describe how magical our day was. Nothing was ever an issue for Louise, no question or request was ever to big or to small and Louise was always on the other end of the phone if we needed anything.
Attention to detail on the day was second to none and the staff in the hotel went out of their way to make sure everything went so smoothly. The Manager Nicola, Owner Louis and all the staff at Sneem Hotel literally could not do enough for us. They were just so accommodating. To any bride or groom considering a venue for their big day, The Sneem Hotel is the place for you.
On a final note, from the bottom of our hearts we are so grateful to Louise and the amazing team for making our day so special.

The most perfect & picturesque venue for your wedding day!
On our first visit to Sneem we were blown away with its beauty & we couldn’t look past it even after viewing other hotels in Kerry, Limerick & Cork. After booking Sneem hotel, everything was made so easy by Louise, the wedding coordinator. As we live 3 hours away from Sneem, we were unable to visit often so anything we needed was made possible with ease by a simple phone call or email.
Our wedding day itself was spectacular & the attention to detail by all of the staff was second to none. They were incredibly attentive to both the wedding party & to the wedding guests. Our reception drinks was outdoors in the sun looking over the beautiful view of the cove & mountains. This was changed to outdoors at the last minute as we weren’t expecting such a beautiful day & it was changed with no hassle whatsoever. The reception room in the hotel is stunning, with chandeliers, changing lights, candelabras & beautiful chair covers. The food was delicious...everybody commented on how nice the rack of lamb was!
The guests also commented on how reasonable the room rates were & many availed of the apartments also at an excellent rate.
Louise & the team at Sneem Hotel provided many little surprises for my husband and I on the day that made our day all the more special! We would like to sincerely thank them for everything! The weekend could not have been better.

We got married in Sneem in mid November last year and it really was a super experience from start to finish. Louise O Flaherty, the wedding co-ordinator, was very efficient in all dealings we had with her, she was good to give advice on the different wedding packages and options available and we really could not fault her. The location of the hotel is simply stunning, we got some wonderful photographs taken on the pier in front of the hotel with the mountains and sea in the background. The food on the day I could not fault, we had a choice of Cod or a rack of lamb for the mains and they were both delicious. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and are definitely good value with the views and large beds. The only negative we can think of was on the day we went for the menu tasting there was quite a delay between the courses but we'd be willing to forgive this when the food was such good quality.Really we would both be more than happy to recommend the Sneem hotel to any couples considering it for their wedding. Friendly staff, great location, great food and a wonderful relaxed atmosphere to enjoy with Friends and Family. What more could you want!

On 18th June 2016, we had the wedding of our dreams in Sneem hotel. We decided to get married in the charming town of Sneem as we fell in love with this beautiful hotel surrounded by spectacular views. Our wedding day was better than we could have ever imagined and this was thanks to Louise and the staff at Sneem hotel. From the moment we met the wedding coordinator Louise, she was so welcoming, accommodating and helpful with any request or query. She was amazing from every step of planning our wedding reception to her little touches on our big day and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Sneem hotel gives a personal touch which makes it stand out from anywhere else. Our wedding day was truly amazing with exquisite food and superb, friendly service. I know Sneem Hotel has a wonderful reputation but it definitely exceeded our expectations. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the Sneem hotel complimenting on its top class food and helpful staff. Sneem has the full package as it is the most picturesque town with a stunning church and fabulous hotel in a remarkable setting which provides endless photo opportunities. We would highly recommend Sneem hotel as the perfect wedding venue. We had an absolutely fantastic day and I would like to say a warm, heartfelt thank you to Louise and the team at Sneem Hotel for making our wedding day so special. We have wonderful memories and look forward to returning to Sneem hotel for years to come
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!!

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.

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.
