"The Swallow's Nest" – A unique and thoughtfully renovated stone shed which accommodates up to two people and offers a completely peaceful and relaxing break in the hills of Donegal. Private entrance and secluded location.


“The best place to sleep in Donegal." Eli Gothill

The Swallow's Nest

So named after the swallows which nested here year upon year until renovation work started in October 2014, this compact and tastefully renovated accommodation started life as a humble cow byre. It is approximately 200 years old, and stands apart from the main cottage with its own private driveway, entrance and deck. It overlooks a grassy meadow dotted with sheep.

The unit consists of one central living space with kitchen area, simple furniture and a bathroom. The king size bed is up on a sleeping mezzanine which affords spectacular views over the meadow and hills beyond.
Heating is from a wood-burning stove with small portable radiant heater for occasional use. The kitchen comprises a sink, gas hob, small electric oven and fridge.

The Swallow's Nest is essentially for couples and offers a truly romantic and peaceful retreat - somewhere where you can literally ‘shed your life' and relax.
It is unsuitable for children and infants because of several safety concerns, such as the height of the mezzanine.

It comes with all linen, towels, basic toiletries, freshly baked scones and some cooking essentials. The basket of scones, butter and jam are a welcome gift and are not supplied on a daily basis, unless requested and for a small extra charge. A towel refresh/drying service is offered for those guests staying longer than a few days.

Dostupno gostima

The shed has its own driveway and entrance. Parking is solely for guest's use. The meadow in front of the shed is also for guests, but the cottage garden is reserved for the owner. There is an outdoor wooden deck, folding table and two chairs with a barbecue which is also part of the accomodation.

I highly recommend Allaye and her beautiful and peaceful property. Her fresh baked scones and day trip suggestions were special touches to an already superb experience! We loved our time here and were very pleased!

Beautiful place to visit very secluded and off the beaten path. We dearly loved it.

Swallow's Nest was a great place to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. If you enjoy the simple things, this is the place to stay. The cottage is small with a lovely loft bed but still has the basic necessities. There is a gas stove and toaster oven along with a refrigerator. Plenty of dishes and cooking utensils. The cottage is clean and well keep. The loft bed was comfortable. We used the small wood burning fireplace to take the chill out of the house in the evening and morning. The fresh made scones Allaye left for us were very good. It was as if on cue that the sheep slowly made their way up the meadow towards the cottage in the gentle rain one morning. Allaye's directions to the place were easy to follow. I did put the GPS coordinates in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps before I left home. We followed several of Allaye's sightseeing and dinner suggestions. We only wish we had more time to go to all the places around Glentiles and Donegal County. If we come back to this part of Ireland again, we would chose to stay at the Swallow's Nest again.

The Swallow's Nest is the most quaint place I've ever stayed, and I would give it 6 stars if I could! (even better than in the pictures). Waking up to a meadow full of sheep, in the SUPER comfortable loft bed was amazing! The location was perfect...even though the house was nice and secluded, it was only a 5 minute drive to town (we called a taxi and it arrived within 5 minutes to the Nest). There were cute little touches everywhere within the shed, and just like all the reviews that I read before our stay mentioned, Allaye's homemade scones were delicious! We will definitely be back! PS...We recommend Roddy's Bar in town for an authentic local pub experience :)

I rate the swallow's nest more than 5 stars. It is a special experience-- warm, cozy, and peaceful. Allaye has done a fabulous job with the building and with the property. It is the perfect space to retreat for some solace and rest. Allaye made us feel welcome with her greeting, recommendations about the area, and fresh scones. I would make the trip from Maine to Ireland any day to stay at the Swallow's Nest!

The Sparrow's Nest was a perfect getaway for my husband and I. It was our first stop on our trip to Ireland, and helped us shut down after days of long drives. We enjoyed the view each morning and making coffee. Being in June, we didn't use the stove too much, but it was a fun experience to try it out. Lovely spot!

Allaye put so much love into making this shed a home. It's absolutely perfect and in the perfect location, secluded yet near all the hikes, waterfalls, and caves you could ask for. You must do the recommendation she has layed out in the welcome book!!
