Sneem, Ireland



This evening, I am posting information on the village of Sneem in County Kerry, S.W. Ireland.

Key charectistics of Sneem are:

  • A very popular stop on the famous Ring of Kerry tour route around the Iveragh Peninsula.
  • Resident population about 260 persons.
  • Named after the River Sneem which flows through the village before emptying into the Kenmare River estuary and then the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Is home to a number of visitor attractions (including a farm and ancient hill fort) and a base for local tour companies.
  • Well resourced with shops, bars and restaurants catering for the high number of visitors.
