Welcome to Sneem
The main village here is Sneem (An tSnaidhm). Its Irish name translates as 'the knot', which is thought to refer to the River Sneem that swirls, knot-like, into nearby Kenmare Bay. The river splits the village in two, with separate village squares on either side and a picturesque waterfall tumbling below the old stone bridge.
There are no real sights, but it's a popular place for Ring of Kerry tour buses to pause so passengers can stretch their legs before the road dives into the woods for the 27km stretch to Kenmare.
