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.

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

Weekend stay 12th October 2013
Peace, calm and serenity. Excellent food from Darren in the Beach Bar.
The sound of the ocean waves at night - Romantic and spiritual.
Had a lovely relaxing stay. Warm fires, long walks, surfing and a great welcome.
Great food and welcome at The Beach Bar
Sad to be leaving
Aside from the above mentioned beauty there are other benefits.
Considered a perfect way to steam shellfish, these clambakes not only prove themselves culinary wise but also in practicality. Instead of cards, I received a bunch of Little Golden Books that had well wishes written inside and even to this day, eight years later, my daughters and I can enjoy the stories as well as remember the people who gave us the gifts.
My family and I stayed at this gorgeous holiday home for a week in July. When we arrived in the beautiful wee fishing village of Easkey and opened the door to the Swallows Nest we were blown away by how super clean and modern this home is. Helen and her family have done a fantastic job of making this a super comfortable home from home and it has every luxury and gadget you could ever need. We were fortunate enough to have *** weather that week with temperatures in the high 20's, we took full advantage of the fantastic outside space and gas BBQ provided.
A big thank you Helen for being so lovely and answering any questions we had, we will definitely be back next year if not before then.
Thank you Helen for a wonderful stay at the waters edge in Augiris, I have to say that myself and my young family have been renting self catering accommodation all around the country for a number of years now and the quality, cleanliness and finish of the above mentioned house is the best we have experienced to date. We also really enjoyed the Thursday night seisiun in McGowans and the hospitality you and your family showed to us during our stay. See you all in August next year
all the best
We had a wonderful time in Easky, a lovely village with great people, brilliant pubs, wonderful walks along the river and coast, fantastic surf, and Enniscrone just a short drive away. The house is brilliant, right in the heart of the village, huge and well kitted out. I'd highly recommend to friends and family, and will probably be staying here again.
