Eisingrug (meaning: a place where corn was winnowed after husking[1]) is a rural hamlet near Harlech, Gwynedd, Wales. It is located to the southeast of Porthmadog. On December 10, 1845, Eisingrug was visited by a Methodist missionary.[2]

The Cambrian Line railway passes close to the village. The nearest railway station is to the north at Talsarnau.

In the northeast is the 14th century manor house, Maes-y-Neuadd Hotel.[3] To the southwest is The Glyn and Brogyntyn Estate and to the northwest is Black Wood, a conifer plantation on a steep east-facing hillside with alternating rows of 2 separate conifer species.

The area affords good views over northern parts of Cardigan Bay.
