  Sneem Village - Eating & Drinking

Although Sneem is a small village there are plenty of great places to eat and drink.

You can choose from the two big hotels, The Sneem Hotel and Parknasilla or stroll through the village enjoying the Irish pub atmosphere in one of the many "locals".

As well as the Hotels and pubs there is also a choice of tea rooms and cafes. There are also a few places out side of the village that are of note so I have mentioned these as well.

If you are looking for takeaway food then there are several choices, some of the pubs (like D O'Sheas) will accept take away orders for any meal on the menu, also some of the cafes and tea rooms will do the same, don't be afraid to ask.

(D O'Shea's Bar - My personal favorite Pub in Sneem)

D O'Shea's Bar
The pub is located in the North square and unmissable as it is presently painted bright pink, its often used as a landmark. O'Sheas offers a relaxed traditional Irish pub experience, on a cold day get there early and sit in front of the open peat fire.

Food is servered from 12:00 through to 21:00 and there is a specials menu (blackboard) as well as the standard menu.

Free Wi-fi is available at O'Shea's

Although this web site is mainly intended to be about my house and the nature arround it I feel I have to share the news that there is no where nicer to visit than Sneem. Note I am in no way connected to any of the businesses mentioned on this site.
