Easkey Discovery Point provides scenic views over the Atlantic and on to the Slieve League and Benbulbin mountain. Accessible via a local road 0.5km from the R297.
The shores here are bold and rocky, and abound with curiosities. Roslee castle, built in 1207, is a dominant landmark at Easkey Pier and together with views to the adjacent pier contributes to forms an attractive setting around the Discovery Point.
The castle was home to the O'Dowd chieftains of the barony of Tireragh, having been originally built for Oliver McDonnell. Although much of the original structure has been lost over time, the main body of the castle remains. Situated adjacent to Easkey pier, the 63 feet high castle is a dominant landmark and the highest part is known as the Sailor's Bed.
Coastal walking opportunities from Discovery Point around rugged coastline and along Easkey River.
