Fantastic house and location... The Swallows Nest holiday home, located in Easkey village, next to Irelands best surf breaks was simply the best for our trip. Only a stones throw down the road you can find the award winning cafe/restaurant called 'Pudding Row', and the local pubs were so welcoming. The house itself had absolutely everyting we required - spacious, comfortably sleeping seven, large dining/sitting areas, and a superb wet/dry room for for all your equipment. Suited us so well as we are all into the outdoors. There were six of us but the price was more than reasonable. The owner Helen went above and beyond to make sure everything was ready for us and we couldn't ask for someone more accommodating. I woulds highly recommend staying in the Swallows Nest any time of year. We had a super trip but made all the more enjoyable by staying in this great holiday home.

Fantastic Stay to see in the New Year. Our family stayed at The Swallows Nest for one week at the end of December. We were very lucky to find such a "gem" on the West Coast of Ireland and at such short notice. You only have to read the reviews below to see this accommodation is the perfect choice for anyone. With The Swallows Nest you find perfect comfort and cleanliness. Helen takes great pride in her hosting and really makes the stay special. One in which you will return year after year. We would highly recommend this property. It has nice walks along the coast right by the door step and just a short hop into next village there is a beach with sand for as far as the eyes can see. If you surf or are a fisherman you will find ample storage for all your equipment. So dont delay! Book your relaxing get away today at the Swallows Nest.

The Swallows Nest is a beautiful cosy cottage. Helen is an amazing host who made us feel so welcome and instantly at home. The cottage was spotlessly clean with an open turf fire and beautiful pottery vases of fresh flowers. Helens delicious tea brack was amazing! Within a short distance of the cottage is a picturesque walk by the easkey river leading to the wild and windy atlantic sea. Pudding row is nearby for a hearty breakfast or lunch and Rosie’s pottery is the perfect place to buy beautiful gifts to take home. We loved visiting Knocknera, Strandhill, Aughris, Knock and Innishcrone. In fact Easkey/Sligo is so beautiful that we are returning in April to stay in the Waters Edge. Thank you Helen for your beautiful cottage and warm hospitality, I’m sure that once you stay here you will return again and again. Highly recommend this wonderful cottage.

Helen has been welcoming us to The Waters Edge at Aughris with her warmth of hospitality for many Years. We have just returned home, "rejuvenated" again, after our 15th consecutive year of visiting the cottage. There is nowhere quite like it. The cottage has charm, comfort and space to relax with friends, together with all amenities. The position is breath-taking. We are winter visitors. The weather at this time of the year gives the most wonderful and dramatic, ever changing view and colour palette over the tidal bay across to Knocknarea, Benbulben and beyond. After an exhilarating Cliff top walk with views to Donegal, or a stroll on the beach as far as Dunmoran Strand. The Beach Bar is close at hand for a well earned pint and a bite to eat in front of a warming fire with atmosphere to match. Visits to Sligo town and Ballina take in some beautiful scenery and endless possibilities. Not forgetting our annual stop at Enniscrone for our re-vitalising Seaweed Bath - This is a Must!!. When we first laid eyes on The Waters Edge, some 25 years ago, we said to each other - "Wouldn't that be a wonderful place to stay, sometime". We eventually did, and …… It "IS" the most wonderful place to stay - "Thank You Helen".

We stayed in the Swallows' nest over Christmas 2018 (our second stay!) and had a highly relaxing and enjoyable stay. Helen gave us a lovely welcome upon our arrival. There was a real sense of a home from home, thanks to Helen's deft touch with Christmas decorations - we particularly appreciated the beautiful natural holly! We found the house to be cosy and comfortable. Each room was perfectly clean and tidy. The Swallows's nest is right in the heart of the village of Easkey and only a few minutes walk from the sea, so ideal for coastal walks etc. We would happily return! Many thanks to Helen and Joseph.

Hard to believe that this little cottage sits so close to the sea and yet one feels so safe within it... Thank you Helen for providing us with such a stunning location and a house so well equipped with all the little things one forgets. We had an amazing time and hope to be back again in the Springtime.

Excellent holiday home. Wonderful welcome from Helen and her family.. Location of the Swallows Nest is ideal for day trips but also a brilliant place to kick back and relax and enjoy Easkey village and surrounding areas. Check out the hidden gem of the sea water pool near Easkey pier. We stayed for a week along with our two young boys and thier grandparents and we all throughly enjoyed our break We will definately be back!

We had a super time on our holidays. Helen was a dream hostess. The house was immaculate and extremely welcoming. This is an ideal location to see the Wild Atlantic Way or to enjoy the seaside. The beach bar atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. The food served was also lovely. We are planning to return in 2018.

Wonderful welcome from Helen and Joseph and family....the house has everything for a warm and comfortable holiday. Most spacious, clean and convenient to beautiful Easkey, Inniscrone and Ballina. Strongly recommend local shoppong in Rosie's pottery and The pudding bowl cafe n gift shop for very reasonable high quality craft and gifts. McGowan's bar across from the house is the place for a trad session on Thursday or jst chat n a bit if craic. Ireland at its best and the best host in the world. Not to mention the fishing, walks, beaches, surfing, and food at The Beach House Aughris is unreal. Thanks to Helen and Joseph for an *** holiday x

Thank you Helen for another wonderful stay at the waters edge in Aughris. This was our 2nd visit and Once again on our arrival we were greeted with a fabulous home baked cake and couple of bottles of wine. The location is absolutely wonderful, stone throw away from the sea and Aughris fabulous beeches with added bonus of being a few meters away from the beech bar. The house is spotless and kitchen and rooms are very well kitted out. The fire stove in the kitchen add plenty of atmosphere and warmth to the cottage. The location could not be any better if you want to chill out. Highly recommended.

I very much enjoyed staying at The Waters Edge during my fundraising week in Co. Sligo. Comfortable rooms with delightful bathrooms, and to top it off, and excellent location - close to the Atlantic Ocean, a good night's sleep guaranteed 🙂 (Something I value pretty much after a hectic day at work...). ” Can't wait to visit there again....

This was a perfect house and location whilst on a surf trip exploring the coast around Easky. The house has a wetsuit drying room and 1 min away from world class surf spot in Easky. We had a great trip welcomed so well by Helen the owner of Swallow Nest who quite frankly is a legend and an *** host. I can't recommend this house enough and after this being our first stay we will be definitely coming back. The locals are so friendly (including Helen) and the waves are awesome. Perfect house perfect trip. Thank you Helen

The Swallows Nest accommodation in Easkey is perfect for any family. This was our second stay and it was fantastic. ..The house itself is immaculate and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The wet room with laundry and showering facilities is a blessing when returning from a busy day at the problems washing towels or wetsuits and getting toys rinsed. Helen and her family are exceptional hosts and go above and beyond what any normal guest house owners would do. Traditional music and great beer can be found in Mc Gowans pub and you dont have far to walk to get home. A visit to Rosies pottery studio id a must as its treasure trove of creations. Longwalks along Easkey beach and around the castle are a must...Enniscrone beach and pier are only 10 minutes away... To anyone thinking of booking the Swallows a perfect location for a relaxing break with family...Thanks Helen and Joseph for a fantastic week. Xx see yous soon.
