Observation Deck Landmark
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.

Where to stay in Dingle

Dingle Town represents a relaxed, artistic destination known for having plenty of affordable bed and breakfasts and other specialty accommodations. Many of these cluster right in the town's center, although the town also has a number of hotels, hostels, and other lodging for tourists. Here it's even normal to stumble upon a pub offering accommodation. A more luxurious (and often costly) option for travelers taking in the beauty of this peninsula is to stay in a scenic guesthouse overlooking Dingle Bay, which you can find in or right outside of town.

  • nice hike up through a field with sheep, great views at the top, steep buy more of a "walk" as opposed to a hike. Worth the effort.  more »
  • The climb through the sheep pasture up the steep headland was not easy but certainly worth it. Once to the top, we saw Dingle Bay, Ventry Bay, the Blasket Islands, Skirrig Michael, and the village of ...  more »

  • It was foggy when we went, but it was cool to see! Definitely worth the hike.
  • Our Family walked up to the tower last June. We were in awgh at the site we saw when we reached the top. Pure beauty. Such peace it brought to us all. This time around......yes we are coming back again....we are bringing a blanket and some beverages to sit back and take in this beautiful creation made by our Father in Heaven. We couldn't get enough. Advice would be to wear old comfortable shoes as you are dodging sheep poo. You won't regret taking the hike to the top.
  • View is just amazing! Climb is not too hard with a proper shoes.
  • 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,
