Towns of Kerry
Sneem —County Kerry
Sneem village is situated on the estuary of the Ardsheelaun River. Few villages are surrounded by the same rugged beauty as the picturesque village of Sneem. The village boasts beautifully manicured squares and gardens and is the winner of several National Tidy Towns Awards. Gaily painted houses and shops surround the beautiful landscaped greens.
The village derives its importance from the proximity to some fine mountain and river scenery. The islands in the Sneem River estuary are rich in sub-tropical vegetation, as a result of the Gulf Stream, which passes along its shore.
Sneem's relaxed atmosphere has attracted many famous people over the years, such as George Bernhard Shaw, Charles de Gaulle and a host of others. The peace and tranquillity of the area makes it an ideal location for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Sneem is a popular holiday destination for families and is an ideal holiday centre for touring the surrounding region.
