“We stayed in Eamonn and Orlas home in Easkey for around 3 weeks at Christmas time. Eamonn and Orla met with us prior to the swap (we did a non simultaneous exchange) and explained all about the house and town. They are a great couple and we enjoyed their company. Their home is roomy and comfortable. It is well set up with everything we needed. It was cold and windy when we were there and the house is well insulated. It was lovely to light the fire and cosy up in the lounge room listening to their record collection. Easkey is a fantastic little town. The locals were friendly and welcoming. Easkey is on the coast and the rural surrounds are really pretty. I can thoroughly recommend their home for a great stay.”

Where is it?
Easkey is a small village on the North West coast of Ireland in the County of Sligo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easky. Our house is a ten minute walk from the village. The village has local shops, butchers, hairdressers, Post Office and traditional Irish pubs with plenty of good Guinness. Easkey is famous for its surfing, and salmon fishing in the River Easkey. There are also many walks through beautiful scenery and the rugged coastline provides spectacular views.
Our house would be an ideal base for exploring the west coast of Ireland including the counties of Sligo, Donegal, Mayo and Galway http://www.sligotourism.ie/ , http://www.discover-donegal.com/ , http://www.mayo-ireland.ie/Mayo/Tourism/Tourism.htm , http://www.galwaytourism.ie/. There are many golf courses within an hours drive of our house including the famous links courses of Enniscrone, Rosses Point, Carne and Strandhill https://maps.google.ie/maps?ie=UTF-8&q=sligo+golf+courses+ireland&fb=1&gl=ie&hq=golf+courses+ireland&hnear=0x485ee9b5677caee9:0xa00c7a997317380,Sligo,+Co.+Sligo&ei=YzqZUKTjHsyGhQeIuYG4Cw&ved=0CLcBEMgT
Our house is a twenty minute drive to the town of Ballina http://www.ballinalive.com/ and thirty minutes to Sligo Town http://www.sligotourism.ie/. Both towns have good shopping outlets, many fine restaurants, cinemas, museums and pubs. Loch Easkey, which is situated in the Ox Mountains, is about a twenty minute drive from our house through the most stunning scenery and country side. There are many walks and hikes around Loch Easkey and its surrounds.
