A cheap, but fun little hike. Got our weary airplane and car seat cramped legs a good workout. Great views from the top, and you get to discuss the history of Ireland (if you bothered to read about it or know about it) as you climb up the hill.

Eask Tower provided one of many amazing hikes we took while in Dingle. It is not easy to find, but worth the effort. The trails to the top of the hill where the tower is located are moderately steep and wind among the sheep. The views at the top....you must see them for yourself!

Wear comfy shoes and plan on picking your way around sheep pies, but once there the views are gorgeous! To get there follow signs on narrow lanes to Holden Leather and take right fork at "final stretch" sign and watch for Eask Tower signs. It is a steep path through sheep fields but so beautiful, take it slow and enjoy!... More

Wonderful experience yesterday of walking up a steep grade through fields with all the sheep, a lovely interaction with the woman who allows visitors to pass through her fields and provides running water and a brush to clean your shoes after - the views are simply amazing 360 degrees around - we could see the Blasket islands and the Skellig...

From reading TA reviews I knew I had to visit this site (despite reviewer who fussed about receipt). The farm wife is charming but I didn't get to see the dog. The sheep are as promised and everywhere but if you watch your step you don't need the brush or bucket. The place is not easy to find and we... More

Getting tapped up by the old dear with the dog for 2euro per person and not a receipt in sight was typical Irish rip off

This short 30 min hike tourned out to be the highlight of our whole trip to Dingle. The very turn from the Slea Head drive towards the Eask Tower is easy to miss so make sure you know when to turn. After paying a small fee (2euro per person) we have began our lovely walk up the Carhoo Hill. The... More

Really neat trek on a good weather day. Fantastic views of Dingle and the coast line. The tower is an odd looking structure but interesting history. Worth a trip, especially with only a few people there. Farmer who owns the land was kind and offered some advice on the 1.3 mile round trip and 500 foot climb. They ask a... More

This is a fun, steep little hike up through sheep pastures to a neat little lookout tower. At the same time, there are so many sights and hike and amazing viewpoints on the Dingle peninsula, I'm not sure why anyone would choose this one in particular. Because it's close to town I guess?

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
