When we drove into Dingle I spotted the Eask Tower immediately and it looked like such an awesome spot to hike. In a way, it is isolated but we were able to find it without knowing its name and just driving. When we arrived we were greeted by a little girl who gave us the history of the Eask Tower.... More

A short steep walk up the hillside is quickly rewarded by breathtaking views 360 degrees, from Carrantuathaill and Brandon around to the Blaskets and the Skelligs. Well worth the visit; maximum reward for minimum input.

We were met at the bottom of the trail by Teresa. She helped us park, let us wash off the sheep poop after our hike, and chatted to us about her farm and family. There are two gates on the trail but these open so you don't have to climb over them. At the top there are magnificent views of... More

Quick hike up the side of a hill, with the sheep wandering around with you, will take you to the top of the hill, and magnificent views of both Dingle, Dingle Harbor, Minard Castle, and the opposite direction, Dingle Bay and across to the Ring of Kerry! The tower itself is a feat, and the folks that that see you... More

Upon the advice of our hosts at Brownes B&B we decided to hike with the sheep up to this scenic tower. Even though we were soaked from the rain shower during the hike down, we wouldn't have missed this beautiful hike!

We walked up to Eask Tower on our first day to Dingle. This attraction isn't in the guidebooks but it is a great way to get oriented and to view Dingle Village, Dingle Harbor and Dingle Bay. Lots of sheep create great photo ops. Donation of 2 euros.

While a bit tricky to find, the trip is worth it. The views from the top where the tower is located are wonderful. It's also great to get a bit of movement while traveling. €2 per person which is a bargain for the view. Lots of sheep so be ready to get your shoes very dirty. This was one of... More
