Head 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 notifies sailors to let their sails down as they make their way into the blind harbor. The tower originally measured 8.2 m (27 ft) tall, however, additional stone was added during renovations.

  • Built in the 19th century as the way to Dingle Harbour he is still today a worthwhile destination. After a short ascent, you are rewarded with a breathtaking panorama. The farmer on the ground, the tower stands, requires €2 per adult except a responsible handling of the gates between the pastures.

  • 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.
