Things to do in Sneem...
Walking & Hiking
Walkers are in paradise with a number of peaceful and scenic walks, as well as the Kerry Way, which is passing in the back of the house. But even if you do not take the long distance walk you can get a touch of the Kerry Way experience through taking any or both of the two new well marked Loop Walks which have been established recently in the Sneem area as part of the Kerry Way net:
The Lomanagh Loop Walk, a 10.75 km walk (~3hrs) through sheep farms and forestries with spectacular views onto the Kerry Mountains and over Kenmare Bay to Beara Peninsula. (you'll find a GPS track and more pictures here.)
The Fermoyle Loop Walk, a 4-5 hrs walk along Abha na Snadhma River to Coomassig Waterfall and on Fermoyle Mountain, also providing spectacular views on mountains and the sea.
If you like it shorter you'll find plenty more opportunities in and around Sneem. The riverside walkway along Sneem's pier road will thrill nature lovers!
Coomassig View B&B welcomes hikers and provides well for their special needs.
The 216 km Ring of Kerry Cycle Route which passes the house leads through some of the most beautiful countryside to be found in all of Ireland. And the many scenic and quiet back country roads offer many more cycling possibilities, cycles can be hired locally. Commassig View B&B provides for drying facilities as well as safe storage for your bicycles!
Sneem Harbour and Kenmare Bay provide perfect sailing waters. There is an excellent slipway for launching at Oyterbed Pier, which is also ideal for sailboarding and waterskiing. Safe swimming havens can be found at White, Silver and Glenbeg beaches.
Excellent shore fishing exists for wrasse, pollock, dog-fish, conger and sea trout! Escorted sea fishing trips are available locally if you're looking to catch skate, ray, ling, pollock, mackerel and dog-fish.
