I love Easkey! Go here for the surf and a good brisk walk but don't go if you are looking for nightclubs and a 'busy' town! I don't understand people who review the place saying that it is a bad thing that it is so quiet. That's the attraction; peace and quiet! You can walk the dogs on the coast... More

Small village with great waves but stony shore. Has everything that is needed for a simple holiday or visit, fishing, surfing horse riding simple dining. Lots of international surfers never know who you will meet.

The split rock of Easkey is an interesting site and like all things Irish has a interesting tale about it.

Quite town suffering from euro death but most small holiday towns are, great area for surfing, walking, cycling and just chilling in peace and quite.

easkey, gate way to the sea road and beyond, lying as it does on the sligo-ballina road. look to your right and see the mountains to your left the sea and tarry a while in the local pubs for a drink or a meal. it's there you'll soak up the atmosphere of Ireland of olden times.

If you are a surfer this is a good place to go. The waves are just the thing. There are many local hosteleries and Easky is located only a few miles of beautiful coast road from the seaside resort of Enniscrone

Go to Easkey! Cool place for surfing. Hang out at LJ's Bar, stay at the hostel or camp right on the seafront. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere, nice people. I loved it and will definitely be back.
