We walked to the tower and had a picnic at its base on a day with glorious weather. The 350 degree view was amazing and the experience was one of the best of our holiday.

We enjoyed the views from the top of the hill and while there got a real treat of being able to watch a sheep dog round up a flock of sheep to move to another field.

After visiting Dingle a few times previously, I had always wanted to climb to the tower. This time I did it, and it was certainly worth the effort. Its quite strenuous climbing up and takes about 20 mins, I'm pretty fit (had run Dingle half marathon the previous day) and did it with ease. Theres a zig zag path up... More

A nice gentle hike, stunning views from the top. I had nice chat with the farmer whom I met on his quad bike.

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
