  • "A wonderful location."

    Swallow's Nest is minutes from some of Ireland's most beautiful, if not that well known, coastline. If you happen to be a birdwatcher, it is like heaven! Lovely, cosy accommodation.

  • "Too Small For Two People , TV Tiny ."

    No washing machine or Dishwasher. Had to leave windows open just to get the room cool (Fan might be a good idea ) Brian very helpful . Internet really bad ,half the stay was no internet so we had to travel outside the area to make a phone call to our daughter to wish her a happy birthday . If the weather had been bad we might have left early just because of the tiny space we were staying in . Wife would not have stayed if she had known we had an adjoining door which could have been occupied any strange. On the plus side we loved the location and would stay again if the room was slightly bigger.

About the location


Wexford 9 miles.

The small village of Tacumshane in County Wexford has a pub and restaurant, The Millhouse, and is home to the Republic of Ireland's only surviving windmill. Built in 1846, the timber used is thought to be beach driftwood or wood from the shipwrecks that were all too common in this coastal region. The windmill is now designated a national monument. This part of County Wexford has plenty on offer - Tacumshane Lake is a favourite with anglers and birdwatchers, there are many golf courses, and the coastal walking path is easily reached. Kilmore Quay fishing village is a few miles down the road, and there are some lovely beaches, ideal for relaxing and playing on the sand. The county town of Wexford is under 10 miles away, and offers plenty of amenities including shops, bars and good restaurants.
