We had the most amazing wedding weekend at Sneem Hotel. Louise was fantastic to work with from start to finish. The hotel itself is in the most beautiful location and all the guests commented on the stunning views from the hotel. My bridesmaids and I stayed in the Boathouse the night before and it

was a perfect way to really feel special and relaxed before the big day.
The bridal suite was lovely with some personal touches added which we really appreciated.
Louise was always on hand with any queries during the planning stages and was so helpful in advising and helping us organise the day. The day itself was absolutely amazing. The staff at the hotel were exceptional. The reception room is a great size and was decorated so beautifully. Everyone commented on how lovely the food was and a lot of people came up to us after to tell us it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
I highly recommend Sneem Hotel as a wedding venue as we had a great experience from start to finish and the best day of our life.

We had the most amazing day in Sneem Hotel in September. From the moment we met Louise, the wedding coordinator, to start planning our day, we knew we had made the right decision. She was extremely helpful in the run up to the wedding. When we arrived the day before we were immediately treated like

royalty. The staff were fantastic. The hotel organised music in the bar for the night before which was a lovely way to start the celebrations. My sisters and I stayed in the boathouse the night before and it was so beautiful waking up to the fabulous vista, it put me at ease and gave a sense of calm to what can be a hectic morning. I cannot put into words how amazing the staff were on the day of our wedding. There is not one thing I would fault. The function room was decorated nicely. Our bedroom on the night was lovely and there were some extremely special touches that were appreciated and will be cherished. I know it is cliche but it was the best day of our lives. All our guests raved about the food at the reception but also the breakfast and the hotel in general. Most guests stayed for 2 nights as we had our Day 2 in the village. Neither of us are from Sneem but we found an absolute gem in booking our wedding in Sneem Hotel. I cannot recommend Sneem Hotel highly enough. You will not be disappointed! It is now an extremely special place to us both. Thank you Sneem!

I got married at Sneem Hotel 12 Aug 23. Can I just say a huge special thanks to the wedding coordinator, Louise who went above and beyond to ensure our day was magical from straightening my dress, giving me slippers in case my feet got sore to table plans, wedding menus and so much more. From

forgetting the flower girls shoes to her coming with a pair last minute to save the day. The staff were so so helpful. The hotel stunning, the food out of this world. Dinner was on time, canopes beautiful! Just cannot fault it one bit. So glad I chose here because it's so important to pick the right hotel so your day is magical. Spent so long planning and this hotel was perfect. We had the appartments to get ready in the morning of and breakfast delivered to us. Sneem Hotel will always be special to me. Can't wait to return on our wedding anniversary and see the staff again. Thank you so much to you all.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Sneem Hotel and it was beyond amazing. Louise and everyone at the Sneem went above and beyond for us and our guests. We planned our wedding from America and it was so easy and seamless, thanks to the Sneem Hotel team. Many of our family and friends travelled

from American for the wedding and it was so convenient to be able to have them all stay on site. Everyone was so impressed too! The food was wonderful. The scenery was gorgeous. Even though we had a rainy day, they truly made the best of it, complete with a heart-shaped umbrella for photos. I highly recommend using the Sneem Hotel for your wedding.

We had the most amazing wedding weekend in Sneem. Louise and the team couldn’t have been more helpful. Every little detail was taken care of and nothing was a problem. We were even able to get some practice steps in on the dance floor a few days beforehand!

Louise herself was on her hands and

The food was sensational- everyone commented on it. Our honeymoon suite was decorated beautifully when we got back to the room after the best day of our lives. I’ll always remember it!

Thank you to all the staff in Sneem Hotel- you made our guests feel so welcome and gave us our dream wedding!
