The Nest

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

The Nest is a hostel, but it’s known by locals as a “Poshtel”, which gives you a clue as to the stylish decor and witty and artistic style that keith xxx has gifted to this fine old house, out in Salthill, close to the sea. The aesthetic value of the Nest is exceptionally chic, being modern, classic, simplistic and clean. The lobby is the epicentre of the house, where guests enjoy a very sophisticated breakfast, with local fresh breads, scones and little pots of muesli to be enjoyed with yogurt. The coffee is great. Keith’s childlike sense of humour and bright personality as he floats around making sure that everything is shipshape is one of the joys of staying here: the host is warm, chatty and more than happy to give advice on what bus gets into Eyre Square the fastest, or which pubs around the block to try. The Nest is childlike sense of humour and bright personality whilst floating around making sure that everything is shipshape is one of the joys of staying here. The Nest is recipe for cosiness and intimacy, a gift for the traveller who loves creature comforts, and a taste of home.
