Walk down alongside St Michaels church towards the river and you'll come across this strange assortment of pyramidical looking buildings. In fact they are pyramids donated along with the slab holding "Isis" by the Egyptians. Designed by James Scanlon and effected by local men they also represent the beehive huts found around the Ring of Kerry.more

Not surprisingly, nightlife in a tiny Irish town revolves around the pubs. This is Dan Murphy's in the centre of the village (pretty much everything in Sneem is in the centre of the village).
Let's just hope two buses don't try to cross the bridge at the same time. You won't find any big, fancy motorways in Sneem.
Possibly not the safest place to go swimming...
I had never seen the river looking so wild - at least since my last trip to Sneem.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: No need for your fancy baseball caps over here, thank you very much - when it comes to fashionable caps, Sneem is the place to shop.
Five kms from Sneem is Staigue Fort, probably built in the 1st century AD but possibly up to 400AD.Used by a clan chieftan, it only has two small chambers entrenched within the thick walls although there were certainly either huts or tents in the centre. Astonishing construction this, as there is no visible mortar or cement used for the 4 metre...more
When we first visited Sneem a couple of years ago I remember we went for lunch in a pub called the Blue Bear (or something similar - I've forgotten the name). Anyway the food was very nice but what I remember most are these two old guys sitting at the counter drinking Guinness. They looked (and dressed) like they two characters who had stepped out of 1920's Ireland. Their conversation was pretty lively but it was impossible to make out what they were saying as I think they had about six teeth between the pair of them.
On our next trip to Kerry in 2001, we again visited Sneem and had lunch in the same pub. And who was there only the same two fellows. Dressed the same, sitting in the same seats, and drinking their Guinness. I have a feeling they'll be there when I next return.....
