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.

  • We hiked up to Eask Tower on an overcast day so didn’t get much of a view, but still enjoyed it very much. There’s parking on the right when you arrive, and a little hut with an honesty box where you ...  more »
  • Unbelievable views of lovely Dingle Bay and sheep to accompany you along the 30-minute climb! Wear washable shoes as you’ll need to clean them with a hose (provided by gate keeper Mary) after walking ...  more »

  • Worth the short hike for great views!
  • Fantastic views from the tower. Best €2 we spent on our Ireland trip!
  • Worth it! Review of Eask Tower Pending review A nice little workout with great views! It costs 2 euro per person to walk up to the Eask Tower, which sits on a someone's property! We were greeted by a very friendly woman, who told us to walk straight up and watch out for the sheep muck! She also offered for us to use her hose & brush if we needed to clean our shoes after. We did have to hurdle some sheep poop, but our shoes were fine. A lovely walk through the sheep fields with an exceptional view of Dingle town & cliffs from the top.
  • This was the highlight of visiting Dingle. We paid 2 Euros per person to the lovely owner of the property and walked up a large field/hill with breath taking views. I would highly recommend this!!
  • Really nice view over Dingle harbor and the surrounding mountains. Also you can see the Skelligs and Blasket island when the weather is good. You have to pay an entrance fee of 2€, because you are going over private property. It's a nice hike of 20 to 30 minutes up the hill and well worth the fee!
