The Southwest Hotels

Sneem Hotel


  • Large, modern rooms
  • Friendly service


  • Some new development detracts from the views
  • Large bar and restaurant can be a bit eerie when not busy

Fodor's Review

Meet the locals and enjoy spacious accommodations at this waterfront hotel and apartment complex on Goldens Cove, a rocky, sheltered spot with views of distant mountains. The large stone portico on the long, curving three-story building leads to an airy lobby, with original Irish art and cushy sofas. Beyond is a huge double-height bar and separate restaurant, both with large verandas overlooking the sea. It's worth paying a small premium for a sea-facing room with balcony to enjoy the setting sun. All rooms are decorated in tones of beige, brightened by touches of red, with light-wood furniture and black leather armchairs.
