Eask Tower, Dingle
(4.6/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Eask Tower and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Dingle itinerary builder.

  • We had such a great time on the Dingle Peninsula, and the hike up to Eask Tower may have been the best couple of hours we experienced. If you look around while in Dingle and see the mound next to town...  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.
