Lough Easkey

August 2010

Lough Easkey is in a lovely location in the heart of the Ox mountains. Surrounded by hills and the wild countryside the lake shimmers in the sunlight and is a really nice place to stop for a swim.

The water here is lovely and fresh but access is stony and a bit difficult. However, it's worth the effort and when we swam there in the sun it was tranquil and just a lovely place to be.

Access is off the N59 which runs between Ballina and Ballysadare. From the Ballysadare direction you go through Templeboy and then watch for a left turn signposted for the Ox mountains and Tubbercurry. This road will lead you to the lake where you will see a place to park plus a few seats.
