Sneem Hotel, were beyond amazing. We had to plan our wedding from abroad in a year and Louise and the team at Sneem couldn't have made that process easier. They accommodated to all our needs and even went much further than we imagined. We would highly recommend Sneem Hotel not only for the staff,

Just book your wedding here...

I’d always known I wanted to get married in South Kerry. Liam proposed on the Ring if Kerry at Christmas, we are located in Sydney so we decided this was our only opportunity to look at venues together so quickly went into planning mode.

Saw a few venues was

about to give up when we popped into Sneem Hotel. Liam mentioned in reception we were looking at wedding venues and Louise O’Flaherty mentioned she was the wedding coordinator. She was the first person we shared our news with and had a celebration with. She gave us a tour of the room, the grounds and hotel. She has the most relaxed vibe about her, we instantly felt at ease. We had the wedding date booked, venue locked in, and the church organised within an hour of meeting Louise!

She does not over complicate wedding planning, and is such a support when at times you can get side tracked and lose the run of your budget. She gives great advice and is so honest in her opinions, where to invest money and what won’t get noticed. We planned from Sydney so she was fantastic in recommending suppliers. We had people travelling from all over, so the view at the grounds of hotel and village itself was perfect for people travelling.

We had a three day event. D’OSheas in the village kindly put music on Thursday afternoon after our rehearsals. It was a great gathering location, stunning views and great traditional musicians.

Wedding Friday was undoubtedly the best day of our lives. The church at Sneem is recently renovated so the grounds and interior are stunning and it’s a really intimate setting. The staff at Sneem think of literally everything. They even made us sandwiches for after the church so we wouldn’t get hungry taking pictures (big hit). Louise and Nicola make it the most seamless day. They had surprise touches throughout the day, that you aren’t expecting. There were things I really wanted to do but forgot in the buzz of the day. When we woke up the next day Louise had it all done. Still don’t know how she managed it, as I didn’t tell her. People still talk about the food, for a large crowd food and quality is definitely not compromised! They just create so a relaxed atmosphere everyone feels at ease.

The day after the wedding. We had breakfast with everyone in the hotel and headed to Rineys for a Hog Roast and buffet, danced to the early hours and danced some more in the residents bar in Sneem after.

Our family and guests still comment on how great it was having everything in the one location. It kept everyone together, meaning we got to spend time with all our family and friends who had travelled.

We got married at Sneem Hotel on 31st August 2019 and what an incredible weekend it was!

We planned our wedding from Australia and had originally booked another venue close to home (Limerick) but 5 months before our wedding we were advised that the venue had closed down. We started the search

again and we were lucky enough to find Sneem Hotel!

I got to see the venue in real life 5 days before the wedding and I was blown away by how beautiful it was. I got to spend time with Louise the worlds BEST wedding coordinator and go through a check list for the day (she actually stayed back after her shift to meet me as I couldn’t get there any earlier).

From the initial point of contact with Louise we felt at ease. I wouldn’t say I was the most organised bride, maybe a bit too relaxed at times and I found myself trying to get things done at the last minute but any questions I had Louise was there to help. She was great in the lead up to the wedding and I swear on the day itself she could read my mind! She was always 10 steps ahead and nothing was too much trouble. She was so fast and efficient but in a very calm and relaxed manner. She had met most of the bridal party, family members ect before I had even had a chance to introduce them!

All of the staff were amazing, they couldn’t do enough for you. So many of our guests complimented the staff on their service not only for the wedding day but for the whole weekend.

We had family and friends travel from Australia, Canada and all around Ireland so we made a weekend of it and had our day after at the hotel aswell. It was so nice to have everyone in one spot and get to spend quality time together.

From the minute we checked in on Friday to check out on Monday we were totally spoiled. The extra touches were just amazing, they thought of everything.

We were lucky enough to get the weather for an outdoor ceremony/drinks reception and the setting was absolutely breathtaking. I believe everything happens for a reason and I’m so grateful we got to spend our special day at this amazing venue!

Thank you Louise and all of the staff at Sneem Hotel for the best weekend!

(Ps. Brides - rent the boathouse for you. for the night before with the bridesmaids and morning preparations, you won’t be disappointed!).
