To sum up the whole experience in just one word, it woild have to be AMAZING. From initial correspondence with Louise to departing following our wedding-it was AMAZING. The location, staff, ambience, food, views, setting, hotel dog, local amenities, local knowledge - all AMAZING. We would highly recommend.Thank you everyone-special thanks to Louise (our wedding coordinator), Lisa (receptionist and our photographer-no end to her talents) and Nicola.

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 though 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!

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!!

Best Wedding Venue ever! We got married at this hotel in March 2016, and from the early stages of planning our big day, every single detail was meticulously cared for. We were treated like royalty by all staff members and our wedding was the best day of our lives. Even Red, the friendliest and cutest hotel dog was among us (I am so fond of this dog!!.) We chose this hotel for its quiet and relaxing setting, the fantastic views of the bay, its spacious and fabulous rooms, its excellent food and the bespoke service provided. The wedding Coordinator, Louise, went beyond and above; her creativity and great expertise impressed us and all our family and friends. The timing was perfect, everybody was well looked after but it was little details and the personalized service that made our day truly special and memorable: the picture of my deceased father we used during the ceremony was beautifully placed right behind the main table in the function room, surrounded by candles and fairy lights; it was a big surprise and a very emotional moment for me and my family. Also, I was brought slippers during dinner so my sore feet could relax a bit, another unexpected and pleasant surprise!!!. The food was exquisite and the whole staff was amazing. We, our friends and family found it hard to leave this hotel, and we will not recommend it enough. A very warm thank you with tremendous gratitute to Louise, Nicola, and all the staff members at the Sneem hotel. We can't wait to go back, very soon! A & T Murphy ???? 26 Mar 16

We got married here in March 2016 and have therefore had several visits and experiences with the hotel in the lead up to and of course the wedding itself. From the minute we first looked round the hotel we knew it was the one for us - the setting is beautiful, the rooms spacious and the staff excellent. However, it is the friendly/family/relaxed feel that the Sneem Hotel manages so well that really attracted us. Everyone is so welcoming and relaxed and couldn't do enough for you. At this point, I must give specific praise to Louise O Flaherty the wedding coordinator who so effortlessly assists in making the wedding go as perfectly as planned. Sneem will always be very special to us and we will continue to recommend this hotel to all around.

The idyllic location of the Sneem Hotel in Golden's Cove was enough to sell this as a wedding venue! Couple this with what could only be described as 5* service from wedding planner Louise and her team made it the best decision we ever made. Decisive and efficient are 2 words I would use to describe Louise...2 traits which, in the midst of the long to-do list in the build up to the big day, were a breath of fresh air. From start to finish there was no job or request too big or small. The day itself went off without a hitch...all family and friends were made to feel so special and not a stone was left unturned. The little unexpected touches like the kiddies activity packs and the memory box in the bridal room were just some of the few things that made us feel so special and grateful. We woke up the morning after the big day in total disbelief that everything had gone so well. I couldn't recommend this venue more...and will be visiting for years to come!

We can't recommend The Sneem Hotel enough. From the moment we arrived in Sneem we were greeted with the warmest welcome. We live in the midlands so organising a wedding in Kerry posed its own difficulties howeverl the team at The Sneem Hotel went above and beyond to help us every step of the way. The location is second to none with beautiful views to enjoy. The village itself is one of Ireland hidden gems. Everybody in the village was so pleasant. We married in the local church which is picture perfect with an amazing parish priest. All of our guests had wonderful praise for the hotel, the food and wines served were fabulous. The staff at the hotel had a few little surprises for us that were greatly appreciated! We have the fondest memories from our visits to Sneem and we are looking forward to celebrating our wedding anniversary in The Sneem Hotel!

In December 2014, at Sneem Hotel, Co. Kerry, we enjoyed the most wonderful weekend of our lives with our close friends and family. Checking in on a cold Friday night, we were greeted with a roaring fire, fantastic staff and a warm, Christmas atmosphere. Initially, the plan was for us all to go out for a bite to eat in Sneem village, however, we just could not drag ourselves away from the comforts you can only get in a top class hotel. Instead, a group of thirty-strong sat in the hotel bar for our "last supper "!! The bar staff were great, rearranging tables and chairs so that we could all eat together. Needless to say the food was amazing and it was the perfect start to our weekend. On Saturday, we got married in the newly renovated Sneem church, which, along with the breathtaking scenery of the Kerry coastline, just happens to be one of the most beautiful churches we've ever seen, at home or abroad. Afterwards, as the bridal party traipsed around the waterfront for photos, our wedding guests headed back to the hotel where they were welcomed with canapés, scones, prosecco and mulled wine. By the time we arrived back to the reception, it was clear to see our guest were being well looked after, and having a fantastic day of drink, food, chat and craic. The banquet room in Sneem hotel was decked out exactly as we asked, with lots of Christmas decorations and even a small tree! The food was excellent, and it really did keep on coming!!!!!! We chose beef and sea bass, and many guests complimented the standard of the food over the course of the weekend. The whole day, and the weekend as a whole, was absolutely perfect from start to finish. The professionalism and attention to detail shown by the hotel staff was incredible, and there were so many unexpected little surprises for the bride and groom during the day and night, which I won't spoil by revealing here. Nicola and Louise, the wedding coordinators, were constantly at hand, checking on our guests and ensuring that Neil and I were enjoying our day. Finally, the hotel rooms were excellent, with views and balconies overlooking the bay. The highest compliment I can pay Sneem Hotel is that so many friends, most of whom had never heard of Sneem before, have already returned for weekend breaks, and even booked holidays in Sneem for summer 2015. Thanks to Nicola, Louise, Louis and all the staff at the Sneem Hotel, Sneem will forever hold a special place in our hearts and we cannot wait to return to celebrate our anniversary in December 2015. Danielle & Neil Heffernan.

After recently attending a friends wedding in 5 star hotel in Killarney, there was no comparison between our wedding in sneem hotel and this 5 star. Everything from the welcome to the staff to the extra intimate touches that Nicola, Louise and staff see to in Sneem are second to none. The flowers in reception were colour co-ordinated to our flowers (without request), the food was exceptional, we could not have asked for more, a fact which was repeated back to us by all our guests. Breakfast the following morning was so relaxed with everybody able to sit around chatting in no rush. I think that because it is away from a big town, you are treated as a celebrity as soon as you walk in the door until the last guest has left. If we were to do it all over again, we would go back without hesitation. I would rate it much higher than any other wedding venue.

Thinking of holding a wedding at the Sneem Hotel ? Book it !!! Do not delay or ponder anymore. You will not be disappointed. This hotel is ABSOLUTELY & UTTERLY AMAZING !!! Everything about it – the staff, the accommodation, the food, the setting, the warmness. It is OUTSTANDING. I could go on and on ! The Sneem Hotel know how to host a wedding and blow all your guests away with service, hospitality and support - not just on your wedding day but throughout your planning and build up. We held our wedding at the Sneem Hotel in September 2012. We had 165 guests at our civil ceremony and those 165 guests are STILL talking about the hotel to this day ! They reckon (and so do we of course ;0 ) that it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to !! Sneem hotel knocks the socks off on all categories when thinking about a wedding. Book it today – don’t miss that opportunity to impress and relax at the same time knowing you are in the safe hands of fantastic wedding organisers & staff there :)

Me and my husband had the most fantastic wedding day in sneem. From the moment we visited the Sneem hotel and saw the setting and how friendly the staff were we fell in love with the place and looked no further for a venue. For the months leading up to the wedding the staff were amazing and any questions we had were answered promptly. A lot of pressure was taken off us with the venue things we had not even realised when we booked it, the hotel typed up our table plan and set each table with flowers and decorations, even down to the menus, details that never crossed our minds but on the day we thought wow. The hotel left no detail out and all of our guests said after it was a fabulous venue and how accommodating the staff were. The kids at the wedding were fed first and given colouring sheets and crayons which kept them entertained. The food was amazing and the staff offered extra food on numerous occasions throughout the meal and the wine flowed. I would honestly recommend this venue to everyone, we are from cork and Kildare, so a lot of our guests had to travel they said they would do it all again for such a gem of a place and were happy to make a weekend out of it, a lot of them also said they would return for their own break away to the sneem hotel. So yes I cannot recommend the hotel highly enough, a big thank you to everyone there who made our day so special.

We had our wedding at the Sneem Hotel in July. This hotel is really fantastic! It is located in the heart of the Ring of Kerry. Well, can't imagine a much better location and found the staff on every level of service very helpful and friendly! All our guest were so impressed with the level of service and the food. They are still talking about the black pudding starter. The food is locally sourced so you get the best. The room we stayed in was the perfect very comfortable and cosy. The hotel was very clean and hygienic at all times. I'd most definitely would recommend it to anyone for a wedding or a nice weekend away.

We chose the Sneem Hotel for its beautiful location and great service. We had the most wonderful Wedding Day and the Sneem hotel made our day run seamlessly. The reception/food/wine was excellent and everyone had a fantastic time and made a weekend of it, as there were weekend package rates available for both hotel rooms and apartments... It was a relaxing stay and the Honeymoon suite was beautifully laid out for our special night, there were lots of special touches with personalised robes, petals & candles. Nothing was too much trouble for Nicola, Louise and their team who made our day an event to remember. We hope you have a wonderful wedding day with as many happy memories as ours and we hope you allow the Sneem Hotel to be part of achieving it.

We held our wedding reception in the beautiful Sneem Hotel. From our initial meeting, right up to our wedding day, we were extremely well looked after. Louise, our fantastic wedding coordinator, pulled out all the stops to ensure we had a fantastic day. The hotel itself is modern and beautifully decorated. The rooms are spacious and the scenery is stunning. The food is superb and the service is top class. The hotel is situated in the most magnificent setting which provides the perfect backdrop to capture some great photos. It was great to hear comments from our guests who had only good things to say about the hotel, and four months later we are still receiving compliments on what a great venue & location we chose to celebrate our special day. Louise, Nicola and all the staff were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thank you Sneem Hotel for giving us an amazing day and great memories that will last a lifetime!

Our wedding day in Sneem was a dream come through. Louise and Nicole were fantastic to deal with. There is a lovely friendly atmosphere in the Sneem hotel. All the staff were so friendly and made a huge effort to make our wedding day very personal and special. All our guest were hugely impressed with the hotel and the staff.The rooms and apartments are beautiful. The Bridal suite was so elegantly decorated. The food was out of this world. It is very hard to put into words just how great this hotel is. The personal touches Louise and Nicole did for our wedding day and their attention to detail went above and beyond our expectations. I could not find any fault with The Sneem Hotel and would recommend any couple to book this hotel for their wedding. We have wonderful memories of our wedding day in Sneem that we will cherish forever.

Myself and my wife got married in Sneem hotel in July 2011. From day one when we arrived looking for a prospective wedding venue, up until the day we were leaving after our wedding, we were given the highest level of attention. Sneem hotel itself is a fantastic wedding location with beautiful scenery and a lovely quaint village close by. There’s plenty of parking for guests, the rooms are spacious and have reasonable rates. They have the option of apartments adjacent to the hotel for families or those who wish to share. The village of Sneem itself is lovely with plenty to see and do, everywhere you go you always receive a warm welcome. Louise, Nicola and the hotel staff were extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. All hotel staff are happy to engage in friendly conversation and seem genuinely interested in chatting. All guests were well looked after on the wedding day and above all else, the food was outstanding!!, with the majority of our guests commenting on how “that was the nicest food they’ve ever had at a wedding”. We can’t wait to go back again.

You dream of your big day being the perfect wedding... Sneem hotel for us made it just that!! From the first day we went to visit the venue to going back there for our anniversary a year later we were treated like old friends. Louise & Nicola worked tirelessly to make the planning of our big day hassle free, the day itself flawless and the memories unforgettable. Add all of this to the stunning location and you really have the perfect wedding venue!

James and I met February 2007 in a night club in cork city, our eyes met across the dance floor and we just hit if off. Three years later in May just before my 28th birthday James dropped down onto one knee on Derrynane beach in south west kerry! There was no doubt in our mind where we would get married as I had spent the majorities of my summers holidaying in Waterville, and James loved it as much as i did! A Little piece of heaven. We had our church already picked! Loher Church, a beautiful white church on the ring of kerry road over looking the ocean! We didn't think twice about our hotel choice! We visited 6 hotels in the south west kerry region but there was no doubt in our mind when we met Nicola and all the staff the the sneem hotel! 11 months of planning began! the wedding weekend was planned for the may bank holiday 2011. For the rehearsal mass i wore my mothers wedding dress, this was a complete surprise to everyone including James! It started off the wedding weekend with a bit of fun and mischief. A Sunny wedding morning started early with Pat o Nell the hairdresser arriving at 7:30. We got ready in my parents summer house on Lough Currane. Fiona Higgins a local beautician did our makeup. Hair and make up done, wedding dress fitted, veil on, first of the days photo calls began. The morning went in blink of the eye, but it was full of laughs with family and friends. The Waterville triathlon was taking place that morning, along with the vintage truck drive of the ring of kerry so getting to the church was an exciting adventure. Father Ryan was a priest for our wedding service, it was everything we could of asked for, a few laughs, beautiful singing by local Ryan sisters and most importantly we were married and it was sealed with a kiss! We left the church and had photos taken on Derrynane beach. Onward then to Sneem hotel! Our red carpet entrance was topped off with rose petal confetti and champagne. All our guests were sitting out the back in sunshine with the stunning mountain views sipping on drinks and eating delicious canapes. Family photos and then fancy photos from the balcony and the bell was rung for dinner. When everyone was seated James and I made our grand entrance. The Amazing meal was served by a wonderfully professional and helpful staff. We had our speeches after the meal and a few tears were shed. The Aristocrats kicked off with our first dance, for once in my life by Stevie Wonder! We all danced the night away to the band and Dj till the early hours, in the residence bar a sing song began when a guest started playing the grand piano. When we arrived up to the bedroom there was candles lighting on the balcony, dressing gowns with our names on them on the bed and the hotel had started a memory box which was found on the dresser. This was the best day of our lives and one we will never forget. Natalie
