The hike to Esk Tower is well worth the time. The previous reviewers directions were spot on. The woman that met us at the base of the trail was delightful. As other reviewers mentioned, she offered the use of her hose if needed which we did not need. The hike up to the tower is a good workout. Every step... More

This hike was fun and different from what we are used to (i.e., sheep & no trees). The tower itself was neat, but the views were fabulous. If you are in Dingle on a clear day, the views from this location are spectacular. There is a small fee to pay (2 euro I think), but it's worth it.

Previous reviewer gave accurate directions to the farm where you begin the hike. The lady who owns the farm met us. Delightful, with stories about the perils of raising sheep. Steep hike up mowed trails and through pastures and several gates. Close them tightly to prevent sheep from escaping. View on a clear day was worth the 25 minute climb.... More

It is extremely difficult to find Eask Tower, there are no signs for it anywhere, it has no address, and cannot be found on a GPS. The best way to find it is to follow the signs for Slea Head Drive out of Dingle. You will come to a straightaway with woods on the left and homes on the right... More

The hike to Eask Tower might be a little challenging - but the view is worth it. Be prepared for a little mud and you should be fine. Since you have to walk through sheep pastures, please be respectful and close the gates behind you.

Finding the tower proved to be a bit of a challange. Thats the bad news..The good news is that once you find it. Hand painted signs point the way. Its well worth the trip. Walk slow enjoy the veiw catch your breath. Knock the sheep poop off your boots. You must wear good hiking boots. The boarder collies meet you... More

Situated on the other side of dingle bay from Dingle town itself, you can see this on the top of the hill when in the town, the group of children with us refferred to it as the Dalek, as from a distance it really looked like one. Of course, being the focal point of a childs humour, we decided to... More

We drove to the start of the hike, and were unsure how to proceed, since it looked like a sheep farm with a gate. A lady came from the farm across the road and told us to just climb over the fence and follow the path. It started out beautiful but a storm came up. We hunkered down to wait... More

Our B&B host recommended this to us and we are so glad we visited. Our hostess happened to be at the gate when we arrived and she greeted us with a smile and good conversation as we got ready for the walk. She told us all about the tower and the hike and was very helpful. Her beautiful sheepdog enthusiastically... More

all the reviews say it all. Short semi strenuous hike - well worth it. Took lots of photos. Greeted by the farmers dogs at the bottom who were very friendly.
