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.
Thank you Helen.
It was our first time in the Northwest of Ireland and we had a lot of planswhat we have to do und to see. It was *** when we arrived. Helen was so warm welcoming us that we felt like friends after some minutes. Thank you Helen for that feeling.
The cottage is very cosy and we found all the amenities for a wonderful week at Aughris Head. Wonderful awaking by craching waves and we discovered this part of Ireland.
We are sure that we will be back not so far away. Again Thank you Helen and all the best for you
After 17 years we returned to Ireland to show this lovely island to our kids and found this wonderful place in the north. A very warm and friendly welcome, very courteous landlords, a spacious and cosy house, a grocery store around the corner, everything that you need for a week of recreation.
We surey will return.
1st Class accommodation, wonderful hospitality. Will return. Thank you.

Caroline & Keith.
Third time we have stayed here - Fantastic - Love the extension. See you all again soon.
Regards, Julie & all...
House is beautiful, comfortable and excellently equipped - even had a tea cosy. Hosts very welcoming and friendly and gave our son a tin whistle lesson.
Easkey is a lovely place to stay. We all hope to return!
We have been holidaying at this location for several years now. This accommodation ticks all the boxes! The cottage overlooks what must be one of the most stunning views in Ireland.This is the ideal base for those who want to enjoy all the West has to offer in outdoor pursuits, or those who simply seek a haven of peace and tranquility.The cottage is immaculately presented and well equipped, but it is the additional thoughtful touches provided by Helen that makes our stay a very special and memorable experience. If you are lucky you may be treated to a breathtaking display by dolphins in the bay! A JEWEL!!
Have been to California
Almalfi and the Med
But nothing beats the peace you'll find
At lovely Aughris Head
The holiday is over now
I gaze towards bold Benbulben
Its hard to say good bye to you
I can hardly keep from blubbin
Ill miss the ebbing of the tide
The sunset and the surf
A dawn that nudges dreamily
The craic and smell of turf
Ill miss the dolphins that leap and dive
The rising of the evening star
But most of all Ill miss the taste
of porter at the Beach Bar
So if you're tired and over stretched
Dont just sit there stressed and sulkin
Phone Easkey quick and ask to speak
To the lovely Helen Culkin
She will arrange a break for you
So come in from the ledge!
just pack your bag and point your car
Towards the special "Waters Edge"

We enjoyed our stay in Waters Edge, very much - especially the very warm welcome from Helen. The view to the ocean is stunning, the atmosphere in the Beach Bar is cosy.
Coming from Berlin, we'll miss your cows and sheep
We went to aughris for a lads weekend away and it was perfect in every sense. The house is idyllic, literally on the waters edge. The beach bar with its excellent food and lovely staff could not be faulted. The surfing, cliff walks and just the location full stop is one of the best I have ever been to.
Helen is very hospitable and welcoming and I wish her the very best in the future. I plan on coming back with my family some day so that says it all - this house and location fits everyone's needs
if you want to beat a hasty retreat from the stress of your busy life then head for aughris and helens beautiful cottage.This is going to be our 12th year coming back cant say i would rather be anywhere else! Every year there is something new! Helens attention to detail is first class. If you need a wee lift pop into the pub next door and hear the craic from the locals!
Thanks a million, again, Helen, for sharing your beautiful Water Edges.We've touch heaven for 2 weeks!!
Perfect location, perfect house and perfect waves.
It was the 4th time, can't wait untill the next!! :roll
My Partner and i stayed in August 2011. Without a doubt it was the best Rental we have stayed in. The house was very clean,comfortable and furnished with quality goods. We dived /swam up in the small harbour, cycled on the quite lanes-ways and walked along the clifftops. I would highly recommend the food and beer in the nearby Beach Bar. Watching the sun set over Benbulbin in the evening with a glass of wine at the Kitchen table takes beating. Thank again Helen and hope to return soon
Enjoyed a fabulous stay in this lovely house. Location is perfect - you couldn't ask for more. The house has everything you might need and Helen's welcoming bottle of wine and sweets is such a lovely touch. It truly is a "piece of heaven" in Aughris...no matter what the weather is like. Will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone who enjoys breathtaking coastal scenery, long walks and homely comfort.
