Écs is a village in Győr-Moson-Sopron county, Hungary.

Écs was first mentioned in 1172 as Esu, Echu. In the middle age it was the property of little nobles, later of the Pannonhalma Abbey. During the Ottoman invasion, the Cseszneky, Oross and Siey families were the most important landlords in Écs.
