The Square Hole has comfortable and spacious accommodation which suited us very well for our week's stay. We were welcomed on arrival by the owners who had left basic food supplies and they were informative about the local area and took trouble to let us know about where we might find pubs with tradititional Irish music.. The lounge was cosy...

Not happy with how they kept over 70% of my deposit when nothing was damaged in the flat and it was left as it was found. There were wasp's getting in through the walls and I would of let that go but then when I only got £17 of the £50 I gave. We even left the place 3 days...

Management response:

The couple arrived at about 5.0pm on Monday. They went out at about 8.0pm. We were awakened at 1.0am,door was slammed with such ferocity that it shook the whole house and was repeated again within ten minutes. It then seemed to calm down. I woke my husband at about 2.30am as there was a lot of noise coming from downstairs....
