Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Sneem this year and enjoy all the festivities. Discover how little villages can be big when it comes to St. Patrick’s Day.
Turn Sneem Green’ for St. Patrick’s weekend is the catchphrase of the locals in the run-up to honouring our patron Saint, Patrick.
St. Patrick's Day in Sneem is a traditional Fair Day and the Parade is the highlight for the people of Sneem and the surrounding area.
The Sneem St. Patrick’s Day parade is well known in a wide area as well as the street market with both local products and stands from all over Ireland. And of course all 6 pubs in our ‘little’ village and our cosy Hotel Bar will give you a warm welcome.
Locals and visitors are invited to take part in a fun-filled schedule for the weekend in this great village on the Ring of Kerry.
The fun starts with the Turn Sneem Green opening ceremony on Friday night in the South Square where there will be live music.
On St. Patrick’s day itself, the parade starts at 12.15pm. There is a prize fund for the best motorised and walking floats. Also there is a prize for the best dressed spectator, so raid the wardrobe for that little green number! There is also a prize for the best St Patrick’s day window display.
The Annual Cow Dung Draw takes place in the afternoon, one lucky winner will go home with a great prize.
Sneem will be buzzing on St. Patrick’s Day with the usual market stalls, entertainment and good food in the pubs and restaurants. Also our local set dancers and musicians can be enjoyed on the Festival stage.
On Sunday there is a guided walk and later that evening, there is lots of live music provided by our local publicans…. so, the motto is TURN SNEEM GREEN, have a great weekend and enjoy the hospitality that Sneem has to offer!
So why not step inside for a traditional hot whiskey or pint?
