The River Eske (Irish At Iascaigh or Abhainn na hIascaí ), also Eask, is a short river in County Donegal in the northwest of the Republic of Ireland.

The river is only five kilometers long, however, known for its abundance of fish. The season runs from March 1 to September 30; especially salmon, trout and char are caught.

The Eske starts at Lough Eske ( hole Iascaigh ) in the southeast of the county and flows westward through the Blue Stack Mountains and the Donegal town to open southwest of Donegal on the Donegal Bay in the Atlantic. In Donegal is based inter alia Donegal Castle, the former seat of the O'Donnell clan, along its course; near the mouth of the Eske in Donegal Bay can be found with the remains of a Franciscan monastery from the 15th century, another historical reminiscence.
