The panoramic sea and mountain views are simply spectacular and the maze of tracks winding through the 7 acres surrounding the house offer wonderful walks and hours of exploration for everyone. Whatever your interests, the area offers a fantastic choice of exhilarating and fun activities to suit all ages and levels of experience: kayaking, snorkelling, diving, coasteering, hiking...Sneem Secret Harbour is a superb luxury hideaway overlooking the sea in the exclusive area of Oysterbed & Parknasilla, close to Sneem village in the 'kingdom' of Kerry on the magical Wild Atlantic Way.

Whatever your interests, the area offers a fantastic choice of exhilarating and fun activities to suit all ages and levels of experience: kayaking, snorkelling, diving, coasteering, hiking, hill walking, cycling, horse riding, angling, golfing, painting, bird watching, whale & dolphin watching, photography, nature and wildlife....or simply relaxing. There are few other places where you can enjoy the outdoors in such visually stunning and dramatic scenery, from dazzling lakes with dramatic mountain backdrops to hidden valleys and panoramic ocean views. The house is in pristine condition with all high quality furniture and appliances. The interior is fresh and contemporary with a palette of colours, plants, pictures and furnishings that is rich, warm, welcoming and wonderfully relaxing. The amazing views wrap around the house and can be enjoyed from every window.....sea, ebbing tides, changing weather fronts, panoramic mountains, glorious sunsets, starry skies, moonlit waters, extensive gardens and native woodland which is home to lots of wildlife. The south-facing kitchen, dining, living room and conservatory are flooded with sunlight that streams through large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors. These exit onto a paved patio with dining furniture and a gas BBQ to enjoy relaxed dining outside. A highly efficient geothermal system provides comfortable and cosy under floor heating throughout and the stylish wood burning stove adds that bit of extra magic on chilly nights. WiFi is freely available in the house. More

About the neighbourhood
Sneem, meaning 'knot' in Irish, is known as 'The Knot in the Ring'. It is a totally relaxed and friendly village and the ideal location for guests looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Sneem has all the usual services of any small town or village, with lots of interesting souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, 4 Star hotel and a wonderful selection of traditional Irish pubs (6) that serve terrific food, regular live music sessions and lots of friendly craic! Try D. O'Sheas pub in the North Square where Mary and Gearbhan are always on hand to serve a very warm welcome, a great pint of Guinness and really good food at reasonable prices, served all day long and which you can enjoy sitting beside a roasting turf fire if the weather is cold or on the deck overlooking Sn...
