LOCATED ON NINE acres of private grounds in Easky, Co Sligo, Easky House is the kind of property you might dream of buying if you won the lottery.  

Dating back to the 1830s, the seven-bed residence boasts incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean and across to Sligo Bay.

Easky is renowned for being one of Ireland’s most popular surfing destinations, with huge ocean swells allowing for year-round surfing. The coast is a five-minute drive (or 20-minute stroll) from the property, meaning you can easily catch the waves for sunrise or sunset if you wish.

The property, which is built in the Regency style and extends to over 5,000 sq ft, boasts a beautifully restored interior, with features including ornate plasterwork to the ceilings, sash windows, marble fireplaces and decorative coving. 

The ground floor comprises four reception rooms, a bar, a kitchen and a utility room. Upstairs, there are six bedrooms – five of which benefit from en suite bathrooms – and the main bathroom.
