Old square castle with significant history. Definitely not camper van friendly area with barriers and notices re parking. There is supposed to be camper van site here but we didn't see it.

Easkey is a dying village.If not for the world wide surfing crowd that comes to Easkey it would die.Not much here,not worth the visit unless you head to the water-line to watch surfers.

We stayed in the Swallows nest in Easky, Co. Sligo... though the village is quaint and quiet, the house we rented was everything we come have wished for. The owners are the most amazing people, as are their whole family... There are some absolutely breath-taking walks down by the river... The house is right across from the River Easky.. This... More

Not too much to do in the town but it is a great place to stop and walk around. The views are amazing.

If carlsberg done tranquil seaside destinations, then Easkey would have to be the best in the world. I spent every summer here growing up on our holidays and the place is just beautiful... If travelling along on the 'Wild Atlantic Way' make sure and stop off here. It's the best place in the WEST

We went to see the O'Dowd castle and fell in love with the town and seashore. The ruins of the castle were impressive. Our ancestral home!

Quiet little beach town. You can't beat the surrounding rolling hills and the gorgeous beach. Wish we had more time to explore.

A weekend to escape from reality...this is the place to go. I had great company and the craic was mighty. Set up the tent in the NEW camp/caravan site. Right in the middle of the village. Great for Apres surf :-) BTW all surfers...please support the Easkey community and use this site... Great shower block...laundry facilities etc. And the surf... More

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
