Parknasilla Resort Sneem Reviews
Reason Enough to Visit the Rugged West Coast Oct 04, 2010
Just spent a great weekend in the Parknasilla Resort in Sneem, Co. Kerry. Situated about 5mins outside the village of Sneem on the Kenmare road and overlooking the stunning Kenmare Bay this exclusive resort is a great hub from which to explore beautiful the Skellig Peninsula.
Firstly, the resort. A lovely old monastery type building with adjoining updated accommodation is the central building on this 500 acre location. We stayed in the nearby lodges which are ultra modern and well equipped inside and clean and comfortable also. 2 bedrooms will accomodate 2 couples for 55 euro pppn (which I thought was awesome value). Self catering of course.
The hotel has a spa, pool, outdoor jacuzzi's overlooking the bay, and all the usual posh trappings if thats your thing but the real gem of the resort is the well manicured and mapped out walks on the grounds. Ambling along the strand or taking on a little more challenging forest walks is a must and as invigorating as any spa. For the more adventurous, the Kerry Way walking routes are very close by Sneem and the highest mountain in Ireland is a short drive away and thoroughly do-able...
Sneem is a quaint village with a gorgeous river flowing through it and a great selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from. Sneem House is highly recommended as a peculiarly Kerry manifestation, the grocery shop that moonlights as a pub... great craic too.
If the time is available take the car around the Ring of Skellig route, not forgetting to get out for a stroll as often as possible. Also, the drive from Sneem to Killarney through the mountains is not to be missed; especially for those who relish the driving experience. It's a thrilling experience but take it handy, the surface is unpredictable at times. The scenery is a sensory feast so drink it in, like a slow pint of Guinness.
