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.

  • Myself with 2 friends decided to stop there while travelling around Dingle Peninsula. It looked like great spot with not many tourists and with great view. It was not easy to find a way to this attact...  more »
  • On foot we walked along partially the Dingle way from Dingle from beginning Tower - in 2 h and a short stretch of the busy main road, otherwise side or on pastures. A rewarding hike you can do without a car of Dingle out.

  • This hike was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. This is a 50-60 minute round-trip, medium difficulty hike with plenty of places to stop, catch your breath and take in the incredible views....  more »

  • Beautiful view and easy hike. The view was completely worth it over the coastline. Can check out the picks or keep it as a suprise as it was for me.
  • Beautiful view all the way up the mountain and at the top, definitely worth the hike up the hill and only 2 euro entry. Definitely worth the hike,
  • Wondered what that thing in the distance was. Ní r little detour, easy climb through the sheep. Fantastic views over Dingle bay.
  • A former signal for the boats coming into Dingle Bay. An incredible point of view after a beautiful climb on the prairies.

  • A caminhada até o topo é íngreme, mas uma vez no topo percebe o quão vale a pena a subida. Uma vista maravilhosa perfeito para tirar muitas fotos. Bom levar um lanche, pois não existe nada por perto para comer. Ir de botas de trilhas também ajuda bastante, o local é bastante enlameado e escorregadio, portanto cuidado ao andar.
