Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We walked the village loop walk, down by the river, to the clan castle and back. We got to see a friendly donkey and horse on the way out…watched the surfers negotiate big-ass wave at the pier and had a quick look at the history of the clan castle before we returned.

A nice quick, stop on the WAW.

I have visted this castle with my family. It is also called the O'Dowd castle as it was once owned by a Widow O'dowd and I am a widow O'Dowd. Easkey and Ennicrone in Co Sligo are on the Wild West Way well worth a visit when Covid19 is tamed

Great to find a place that is not over burden with tourist. Able to wander around and sit down for coffee afterwards. Well worth the visit

this quiet little village nestling on the edge of the Atlantic, is a must on the ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ for any traveler. There are little craft shops, a museum, pubs and shops to explore. Locals are friendly and in no rush. It’s like going back in time!!
Go and see for yourself..

We left our car for no more than half an hour in the car park by the castle to look at the castle and walk along the seafront. Came back to find window smashed and valuables gone, spent the afternoon cancelling cards and sorting out the smashed window. Lady Garda from Eniscrobe was lovely but really ruined the start of a weeks holidays. And really it wasn’t worth the stop anyway!

Back again ...I placed a review in 2014 and although I wasnt staying this time, we were travelling up from Co Clare and stopped for a visit, see what's changed. Easkey just makes us smile. An amazing new cafe, wow 'Pudding Row' please dont miss this...beautiful food. Wish i lived closer but Bushmills to Easkey is 5 hours Lol. Rosie's pottery shop was open this time and I was delighted to get a couple of beautiful pottery items she made. Drove on down to the sea front, i see the toilet block is open again but water flat and no surf but it was idyllic. I heard Easkey is having a 1 day festival in September..I must check this out.Great job people of Easkey....Amanda & John, Bushmills

2nd time here and we enjoyed it even more this time. The village is very small but you don't come here for shopping. There's a picturesque river walk which takes you to the shore. There you'll find an old castle, walk further along and you'll be amazed by the abundant fossils in the rocks. Further along the road you'll come to the Blue pool - a natural outdoor swimming pool. The scenery here is gorgeous and it's one of the best places for surfers (which we're not) but still interesting to watch them.

The cafe is the town won Cafe of the year in 2018, the food is fab and you have to get up early to get the fresh bread. Slightly out of the village if you drive towards Aughris you'll find the Beach Head pub which was voted one of the top 20 pubs in Ireland for its views, food and service - great seafood options and kids menu.

Enniscrone in the opposite direction has a gorgeous sandy beach, surf lessons (which myself and the kids did last time) and there's an indoor swimming pool with a slide for older kids.

We took day trips to Sligo and Ballina (both about 30 min drives) and visited Yeats Isle of Inishfree and Parkes Castle where we took a tour and watched a short film. There are lots of historical sites and monuments within the vicinity as well. Definitely recommend for a short visit and Easkey is a great base from where to explore.

All in all a great few days relaxing and enjoying our time together.

My son told us we were going to see the castle at Easkey. I thought 'ah, very good'!. We arrived and I thought yes. That's a castle. We followed the Grandchildren in to the echoes of Granny look at this fire place!! The castle looked like a quite boring square...but as the children found ...the fireplaces led to secret stairways that lead to what may have been the roof. The children's exhuberance and excitement was infectious and other visitors followed us as we explored. A great way to enjoy a beautiful day in Sligo. The views from the top were magnificent! being able to see the coastlines from Mayo right up to Donegal. Fabulous!! We'd recommend it for an active day out.

The people of Easkey are to be commended - they are trying to spruce up this little, godforsaken town any which way they can think of. There is a nice little shop, they have a nice little castle (a keep, really), lots of rocky beaches, and if you take the scenic route along the seafront, you will not regret the additional time it takes to get there. At the castle, there is a small, well maintained "park", with very clean public toilets - which have bookshelfs with real books. Quirky and lovely.
