We spent 7 days at Aughris and 9 days at easky this 2015 summer.
Wether it was the Swallow's nest or the Water's edge, we've found all what we needed . Both houses are very confortable and spacefull.
The location is perfect to go fishing (Ballina, Easky river ,the numerous lakes all around ) and also biking along the coast road or in the OX mountains.
Helen and her family are so welcoming, we felt as if we were at home and now we're just waiting to come back there again.
We had a fantastic welcome and stay at The Swallow's Nest in Easkey. A lovely treat of chocolates and wine awaited for us. Our boys enjoyed the fishing - only had to cross the road!! Helen, Joe & Family really make you feel welcome and as for Helen - well she is unreal and is always on the go to make sure everything is perfect for her guests. I highly recommend the Swallow's Nest for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.
Beautiful House, Clean,Comfortable, and equipped, with everything you could need, definetly a home from home.On arrival helen greeted us with wine for the adults, and chocolates for the children, lovely fresh flowers everywhere,and her warm welcome made us feel, right at home. Helen and Joseph, always had time for a chat, and even a lesson on the tin whistle.Loved our stay, and will be back next year.Thank you so much.
Just returned from a weeks stay in the Swallows Nest. I think I have found my home away from home... On arrival, Helen introduced herself and straight away , you feel like you knew her all your life... She, along with her family made us all feel so welcome... The house is *** and had absolutely everything you could possibly need... The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in... the shower was great... the kitchen is better than my own, fabulous. living rooms.. yes, you have a choice.... turf fire, nice glass of wine... what more do you need.... Helen goes beyond the call of duty.... hoping to go back 'home' later this year....
Perfect Easkey left at just a 10-minute walk from the front door. And spots for all levels in the nearby area.
Helen and Joseph are the warmest hosts you could wish for, making you feel instantly welcome and at ease.
The house is extremely light and spacious, but also has the cosiest fireplace.
TIP for MAINLAND EUROPEANS:
Flights from Bruxelles to Dublin are just 40 euros (on a regular basis), making Ireland and Easkey a very accessible but unspoilt surfing paradise.
Just spent a week in the house.coming from the city we try to get away from it all once a year to recharge our batteries .we had 2 teenagers and 2 younger children and n*** and granda stayed in the b&b.it was such a lovely place to be.on arriving to see flowers and chocolates and wine gets you off to a good start.Helen the land lady is lovely and warm ,will leave you to enjoy your holiday but is only a phone call away if needed.everything you could need and more is in the house.we lit the beautiful fire while having a family meal looking out onto the sea..wat more could you ask for even the teenagers enjoyed it.the beds are comfortable the house is spotless and everything works like washing machine etc.we have stayed in houses all round Ireland and this house would be way at the top.great place to go if you want to chill and relax with family by the sea ,I had the best sleep ever .thank you Helen your doing a great job.
We all had a lovely relaxing stay, very friendly greeting and the house at swallow's nest is very clean and spacious.
We all cannot wait to come again to Easkey and will be recommending you to family and friends.
We look forward to our next stay.

we spent a fantastic weekend in the waters edge. The cottage itself is cosy. V well equipped and stunning location. The owner Helen is v helpful and welcoming and left wine and biscuits on arrival. I woul definitely recommend yhe waters edge for a family or group of friends who are looking for great views, peaceful setting and a pub next door, what more could you ask for?
Myself and four friends stayed at the Swallows Nest for 6 nights in October 2015. We surfed *** waves in and around Easky but everyones highlight was the hospitality and kindness of our hosts Helen and Joseph and the comfort and homeliness of their guest house - the Swallows Nest. On moving in we were greeted with home grown vegetables, freshly cut flowers, and enough turf for a fire every evening. The house is very comfortable, peaceful, and exceptionally well equipped for cooking, relaxing with a DVD or WiFi and the separate shower and drying room was really handy for our wetsuits. Whenever we had a problem such as locking our keys in the car Helen helped to fix it. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend this holiday home.
had another lovely time in Easkey - perfect location to catch some *** waves. Excellent, well equipped house, fantastic turf fires, and Irish hospitality.
Will definitely be back!
Thank you Helen!
We are 3 surfers from France and found the Swallow's Nest by accident, but we could not have been more lucky.
The house is really big, clean, confortable and my mother's kitchen is *** compared to the accommodation's.
And last but not least, it has been specially designed for surfers : a large room is accessible directly from outside, so that you can shower directly after the surf, hang your wetsuits to let them dry, and store your boards.
Helen and Joseph are very kind, and Helen was really attentive to our needs. She gave us apples and tomatoes from their garden. We made excellent apples and blackberries pie with Helen's apples.
(Excuse my English
We loved "The Waters Edge".
Lovely house, sea in front of the door, watched seals babies, the kinds had really fun.
everything was there that you need in the household, including good dry peat for a romantic fire! and last but not least, helen is a really good hostess..

One night when Heaven was asleep
And Angels slumbered in their bed
A piece of Paradise slipped down
And fell to earth at Aughris Head!

THE WATER'S EDGE
Sunlight on mountain sides,
Mare's tails atop Atlantic Waves,
Benbulben in sight and out again.
The promise of wild days and nights,
The lullabye of waves safely behind the wall.
Gently drifting into a relaxed slumber.
Tide in. Tide out. Fully refreshed.
Time to tramp the strand, the cliff path,
Step back in time to the abandoned village.
Always the pint or “the hot one” to look forward to:-
Then the haven of the cosy warmth
That is “The Call of The Waters Edge”
Thank you Helen
