The residents have formed a town improvement committee called LEAP (Livin' in Easkey and Proud) that has really spruced it up and has provided bulletin board explanations of local sights, flora and fauna, etc. Easkey is a...

Easkey is a beautiful small village, on the Atlantic Coast, in west County Sligo. It's well worth a visit. You'll get the best pint of Guinness going in McGowan's pub, pick up some amazing pottery in Rosie's Pottery Studio and explore the history of the Old Abbey and graveyard (wonderful information signs for the passer by or historian). Pudding Row... More

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

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.
