Climb 182 m (600 ft) above sea level to Eask Tower for breathtaking views of Dingle Harbour and the surrounding Dingle peninsula. The 10.6 m (35 ft) high stone tower was built in 1847 and provided work during the Great Famine. It features a wooden finger post that signals to sailors to let their sails down as they make their way into the blind harbor. The tower originally reached a height of 8.2 m (27 ft), however additional stone was added during renovations.

  • Steepish climb up to the tower rewards with breathtaking views across Dingle harbour and the surrounding area. Well worth the couple of Euro entry fee

  • The hike up is a bit daunting if you aren't used to climbing, but well worth the effort. We enjoyed every minute of our hike up & even made a few friends with the sheep!!

  • This is awesome. Drive to get their is short but very tight for non-Irish. It’s an adventure but we’ll worth it. The climb on s very steep and among the sheep but my lord the views! Take ur time to explore.
  • A quick and easy walk with a bit of elevation gain. Absolutely stunning 360-degree views at the top. Highly recommend!
  • Lovely little hike to the top. Great views all around from the summit. And a lovely local man in the hut was full of information.
  • Great view of the surrounding area, interesting story behind it. Way up is on private property, access is 2 Euros. Can be quite muddy after rain.
  • The tower isn't spectacular or even special. But.. the view is! Entrance fee is €2,- to be left in the honesty box at the entrance.
