well worth the drive on the one lane roads to get to the bottom of the hill where we paid our $2 euro per person admission to the farmers wife. this is as low tech as you are going to get. by the way, the farmers wife was lovely and we chatted for 20 minutes about life and the rough... More

This Tower can be seen from Dingle town but you need some directions to find it . Turn off at the college entrance on the slea head drive about two miles out of town and follow the narrow winding road for another mile. The climb is not difficult and takes 20 to 30 minutes On reaching the summit you will... More

rWe've climbed up there at the beginning of both of our trips to Dingle. It's a perfect get off jet lag hike. It is an uphill hike however. The tower is of interest but even more than that, take in the views of Dingle Bay and the Ring of Kerry across the bay. The wife of the farm family who... More

A walk that anyone with a medium level of fitness could complete, Well worth it with views to kill for. The tower itself was part of the famine relief program, and their is also a lookout tower from the forties apparently looking out for the German invaders. Interestingly the 40 concrete structure is ready to fall down, while the tower... More

Pay two euro to hike to the best views in Dingle Town (apart from Slea Head Drive). Ask your B&B owner how to get there. It is worth the walk!!

The walk is short but fairly steep. However the view from the top is stunning. Well worth the effort.

We walked from Dingle center. It's about a 4-plus mile trek each way, and the climb up Carhoo hill is not for those unaccustomed to sustained climb, some of it on grassy sections in which the ruts are invisible to the eye. Sheep all over the place, but a little skittish and won't let you close. As we were told... More

While finding Eask Tower can be challenging (it's a ways down an off the beaten path road) and when you pull up, you question what is going on... But, it was absolutely worth it. You hike up through sheep pastures, which provided a lot of entertainment and laughter within itself, but the amazing part are the views when you reach... More

Idyllic in it's trek up and just as majestic when you have reached it's peak, Eask towers situation is astounding,obtaining views thats left me speechless, I would go as far as to say that it's the most magical views i have seen in ireland, if I was to have one critique it would be "why is it not sign posted?",...

Our trip to Ireland would have been missing a huge piece if we hadn't done this hike. My husband and I had just completed the Slea Head drive and we weren't sure if we had the energy to do this hike - I'm SO glad we decided to do it!!! The owners of the sheep farm live across the street... More
