The Province of Munster region

A very beautiful area with mountains, lakes, large beaches and also rugged coastline.

Killarney National Park is very good for walking and also driving around. Muckross House and gardens are well worth a look. There are many places in the area you can take a ride on a horse drawn vehicle.

In some places like the Gap of Dunloe you can even hire a pony to see the sites.

There are also boat trips in the National Park or trips to see the seals in Kenmare bay.

On the Dingle peninsular there is beautiful scenery and Inch where Ryan's Daughter was filmed.

Dingle itself is an interesting town with many tourist shops. It is a fishing town and has harbour and marina.


Killarney has a Summer Festival each summer. The Rose of Tralee Festival is also a popular event. Killorglin's Puck Fair is in August and a popular attraction.

There are many eating places in the area especially Killarney where there is a good variety and some places have traditional music in the evenings.There is an aquadome in Tralee which is great fun for all the family.

Farranfore has two bars one of which serves food. There is also a take away.

The village post office is also a pharmacy and general store. There is also a small supermarket which also sells take away food. We have our own health care centre in the village.

"Rural, Rustic, Relaxing and Refreshing."

The Square Hole is idealy positioned as a touring base for south east Ireland and is highly recommended for those wanting a get-away-from-it-all break with friendly inobtrusive owners. We enjoyed sitting in the Orchard having a Happy Hour after a hard days sightseeing.

"Great Value For Money"

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.
