Since its inception Pudding Row has developed an outstanding reputation for its produce. Its cosy café and bakery in Easkey, West Sligo 13km North along the Wild Atlantic Way from Enniscrone delivers a taste sensation that has become a highlight in the area.
In 2020, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the café was closed, and Pudding Row, the Grocer was born.
Owner Dervla delivers freshly baked artisan breads and pastries made with, and accompanied by local, seasonal, organic ingredients. What makes this store really unique are the daily suprises created by the team using seasonal vegetables and fruits. These are combined wonderfully with homemade spices and mixes to give a truly unique taste of West Sligo.

Things to do in Easkey – Surf’s Up!
Easkey has two reef breaks. This makes the waves more attractive to surfers because they are hollower and faster than beach breaks. However, the breaks in Easkey are suitable for experienced surfers only, although surfing lessons are available at local beaches for the less experienced. In 1979, the village hosted the Pro/Am Surfing World Championships. The location was also listed as “one of the places a travelling surfer has to visit” in Surfer Magazine, the biggest surfing publication in the world.
In 1995 the Irish Surfing Association established its headquarters in the newly built Easkey Surf and Information Centre, where they now employ one full time development officer and one part time administrator. Surfing equipment can be purchased from the surf centre and daily surf reports are available also.
