About Sneem: Nestling between the mountains and South Kerry's wild and rugged coast, Sneem has long been associated with a remote and relaxed way of living. Sneem is perfectly situated on each of The Wild Atlantic Way, and The Ring of Kerry as well as The Kerry Way which is one of Ireland's longest and most popular signposted walking trails. The village itself is famed for its colourful houses and characters and has won many Tidy Towns Awards. In 2000 a time capsule was buried in the centre of the town, to be opened in 2100. So if you start your family here they may witness the historic unveiling of what life was like at the turn of the millennium! Sneem Sculpture Trail is one of many features which that makes the village stand out. It has a collection of statues and monuments scattered throughout the village - including memorials to the late President of Ireland, Cearbhaill Dalaigh (who lived & was buried in Sneem) and Charles de Gaulle (who visited for a haven of peace and tranquillity) and Sneem's own Pyramids (aka "The Way The Fairies Went"). "Sneem" derives from its Irish name "An tSnaidhm", meaning "the knot". Some say that this refers to Sneem being the knot in the glorious Ring of Kerry. Others think it refers to the bridge between the village's North & South squares being a knot tying them together while more again say it refers to the knot-like swirling where the River Sneem meets the currents of Kenmare Bay in the estuary just below the village. The village has a great array of top class restaurants and pubs as well as shops, a pharmacy, post office, crche and primary school. If you have a sweet tooth you will love the great choice of locally-produced ice-cream! If you wish to trade Sneem's peace and tranquility for a bit more of a buzz, the world renowned towns of Killarney and Kenmare are each a short yet scenic, drive away.
