Sneem is the most colorful and picturesque village in Ireland with bright rainbow colored shops. The name means "knot or twist" and describes the shape of an hourglass with a single car bridge being the knot and with two greens at each end. Sneem is a multi-winner of the National Tidy Town contest held annually. To win demands the co-operation of the whole town. Houses have to be painted, derelict sites developed, flowers and trees planted in private gardens and public spaces, and litter has to be kept at bay. For those who are unable to do their bit the neighbors pitch in and do it for them.

Behind the church in the town center is a sculpture garden containing pyramid like structures which representative of beehive huts of former days.
