“Excellent - Great Value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We went for a week in Kerry and we stayed at the Square Hole. On arrival we were welcomed by the owners and showed around the apartment. The owners are very friendly and helpful but at the same time they are very respectful of your privacy. A welcome pack was provided on arrival with tea, milk, bread and juice - which was very welcome. The house itself has all the necessities and it is a cosy, clean and comfortable house. You instantly feel at home.

We have two teenage children and although they are never off their ipads and phones they really enjoyed the holiday and the house and loved playing card games and spending quality family time.

This was a lovely place to stay and a great base to explore all that Kerry has to offer. It is close to both Tralee town and Killarney Town. We found this to be a brilliant base to explore all of Kerry's wonders - whether your into hiking or exploring the Kerry Ring and/or the beautiful Dingle Peninsula.

We had a brilliant stay at the square hole, and are planning another trip very soon. We have recommended the apartment to our friends and to anyone looking for a lovely stay in Kerry this is with doubt a great place to stay.

“Great Value For Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

If you are looking to stay at a place full of hi-tec mod cons then this is not the place for you....if,however,you are looking for a simple place to stay with all the neccessities and beautiful surroundings then book! Upon arrival we are made to feel very welcome by the owners and this continued throughout the stay in a non-intrusive way.The cottage was clean and comfy and a great base for all that Kerry has to offer. The lake and geese made it seem very rural and peaceful. The Square Hole is a great find and we will return. - if taking teenagers be warned there is no wi-fi at the premises !

“We had a warm, lovely and welcome stay at the square hole”

We went for a short visit in Ireland, we stayed at the square Hole, some kilometers north of Killarney. We met the owners who made us feel welcome right at the beginning of our weekend. The place was still in builing progres and because of some major setbacks, the area around the house was stil a bit rough. The inside of the house was fine: with a good kitchen and place enough for the two of us, we had enough.

The owners were very helpful and thoughtful towards us. They didn't want to bother us and with that they were trustworthy.

We loved our stay at the square hole, we recommend everyone to rent this house if you want to pay a visit to the providence of Kerry.

Due to the terrible weather this past 12 months our external works programme has suffered somewhat.
Mainly painting and minor landscaping etc..
However this situation is improving quite quickly and this should improve our rating level.
