Best We've Experienced!!
We stay at many VRBO and AIRBNB homes. Lilly's far exceeded the others. The comfort and cleanliness of the home was superb. It is well stocked with everything you need. The artwork in the home is an added bonus. A beautiful, peaceful setting. I wish all the homes we rented were this spectacular. Thanks for a wonderful get away!
Perfect house with amazing views
The house itself is set up on a hill overlooking the bay, and the views are stunning.
Inside the house is so well set up for a family holiday. All the bedrooms are en-suite and the owners provide amazingly soft towels. The beds & pillows are also really comfy.
The kitchen is so well equipped its so easy to cook meals in the house. They even provided some basics for our arrival such as bread, butter and some snacks which was a really lovely touch.
The house is beautifully decorated and clearly a lot of thought has gone into this house by the owners.
Before we even arrived Lilly and Eugene helped us by providing contact details for some local activities we could book, and then they came in person to say hello on the Sunday.
The garden is huge and there are some lovely trails that are well maintained that you can go and explore.
Would love to come back to this house again as enjoyed going out and about as much as sitting in the conservatory in the evening watching the views.
Fabulous house in a spectacular setting!
We've rented many houses/apartments in various parts of the world over the years, and this place is by far our all time favorite. The house on its own is really beautiful, tastefully decorated, and incredibly well equipped, so that alone is reason to recommend it. But the setting is above and beyond wonderful, even in December! We arrived in the dark, so the morning view out the windows was such a wonderful surprise -- mountains, water, mist, sun -- and the grounds around the house provide even more amazing vistas. We particularly enjoyed our morning walks to Oysterbed Pier. Lily and Eugene met us when we arrived and were so pleasant and helpful giving us advice about exploring the area. We really hated to leave and will do our utmost to return again soon.
Beautiful home with breathtaking views!
Words cannot express how beautiful the views are from this home. Every window has something special to offer. Whether it be the beautiful flowers, the glistening water or brilliant stars in the sky. You will not be disappointed!
Secluded yet convenient location. Beautiful house. Highly recommended.
I stayed in Sneem Secret Harbor from 9/17-9/23 2018 and loved each day living there. The house has been maintained very clean with high quality linens, bedding, appliances and furniture. It is also well decorated which makes it inviting and pleasant. What I love the most is the conservatory which has five sides with windows with beautiful views. All the windows makes it feel like you are outside in the nature yet being protected. It is a great place to relax and being absorbed by the peace and tranquility. It is also a great place to gather with family and friends as it is quite large.
The house is in a very secluded location yet it is quite convenient. Within 10-minute of walking is the pier and within 5-minute driving it is the village of Sneem which has gift stores, pubs/restaurants and small grocery stores, or, in the opposite direction, is the Parknasilla Resort who maintains some beautiful hiking trails around it. Sneem is less than one hour of driving to the wondrous Killarney National Park. For anyone who is interested in hiking in the nature Killarney NP is a great place to go. Sneem is also about 20-minute drive to Kenmare where there are several large supermarkets if you need to buy lots of groceries for cooking.
Lilly and Eugene are warm, friendly, considerate and wonderful people. Lots of thought have been put into the house to provide maximum convenience for the renters. For example there are rubber boots (they call them "Wellingtons") of different sizes in the utility room for those who wish to climb up the rocky path in front of the house or walk in wet condition; the kitchen was stocked with all the basics needed for cooking (oils, vinegar, salt, pepper ... I was impressed to find soy sauce and sesame oil!). On the day of arrival a bottle of wine was waiting for me on the table and the refrigerator was filled with freshly provided basic food such as milk, orange juice, crackers, cookies, ham, cheese .. just to name a few. They made the arrival day so much easier. On my arrival day Lilly and Eugene drove 1.5 hours to the house to greet me and provided lots of useful information about the area and where to visit. I can not ask for a better host and hostess.
I highly recommend Sneem Secrect Harbor.
Great Scenery, Even Better Comfort & Cleanliness
View from the rooms is wonderful, there is a huge secret garden to explore right outside the home (with narrow paths prepared for the explorers). A small letdown is the missing access to the sea - there is now public road down to the shore. All rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated, the furniture is well kept. Beds are extremely comfy. Lilly and Eugene (the owners) are really putting that extra effort in.
Sneem Secret Harbour is a particularly beautiful and tranquil holiday retreat, sitting on an elevated site with the most spectacular sea and mountain views, in the exclusive area of Oysterbed, just 3km from Sneem village.
The house is in pristine condition with top of the range furniture and appliances. An eco-friendly geothermal heating system provides under floor heating throughout the house to add to the calm and comfortable ambiance. The contemporary interior is bright and spacious, designed to provide maximum pleasure and comfort to enjoy the ever changing views of nature at its best...changing weather fronts, ebbing tides, glorious sunsets, clear starry skies, sea, mountains and natural countryside.
The south-facing kitchen, dining, living room and conservatory areas are flooded with sunlight that streams through large floor-to-ceiling windows and doors. These open onto a paved sun patio with dining furniture for you to enjoy long, relaxed breakfasts on beautiful sunny mornings and al fresco dining on warm summer evenings.

-Parknasilla Golf Club (14-hole) is the nearest course (only 2km). It is a challenging parkland course with stunning scenery.
-Ring of Kerry Golf & Country Club is 17km away. It has one of the most spectacular settings in Europe and offers panoramic views across Kenmare Bay.
-Kenmare Golf Club is located in Kenmare town - 25km from the house. This is a beautiful parkland course that runs alongside the Roughty River and offers some great golf.
-Waterville Golf Club is ranked in World Top 20 and is just 38km from the house. This is a stunning course and if you enjoy golf, you simply must find the time to play here ...."golf at Waterville is a mystical experience".
-Killarney Golf Courses (18-hole x 4 and 9-hole x 3). Killarney is 45km from the house and offers a fantastic choice of courses for golfers. The Killarney Golf & Fishing Club hosted the 2011 Irish Open and is world-class.
We are ideally located and within daily driving distance from some of the other world renowned courses in the south west e.g. Adare, Tralee, Ballybunnion, Doonbeg, Dromoland, Old Head of Kinsale, Fota.
