“Good for an afternoon stroll.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Eaten a little too much at lunchtime in Dingle town? Then work some of it off with a stroll up Carhoo Hill to Eask Tower. The route itself is across farmland so one is able to experience the menacing / bemused / nonplussed expressions of the various sheep! There is also an honesty box at the bottom of the hill but the request is only for 2 euros each. The views up the top are fantastic, back across Dingle bay in one direction, across to Ventry and Mount Eagle in another. Be warned though. Dont make the mistake we did. Halfway up the bay was clear and bright so we elected to climb to the top and take some photos. The mist had drifted in by this point, shrouding the bay and making it invisible. By the time we were halfway back to the bottom, the mist had cleared again!

“stunning views and challenging hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Brilliant views from the top, overlooking Dingle harbour and Bay. On a really clear day you can see the Ring of Kerry and the Skelligs. The route is well marked and the farmer is really friendly. The sheep are very fun to watch too. If you get the chance to walk this, please do...I promise it is well worth it!

“A trek through the sheep pastures”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

A little difficult to find the road to get to the site. For the cost of 2 euros and a 600 foot climb though the sheep pastures, one is rewarded with views across Dingle harbor as well as sweeping views across Dingle Bay.

“We hiked to the top!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

This was a great little hike to the tower you see across the bay at Dingle Harbor. There is an honor box and a little parking area and the base of the hill on the north side. It is an active farm so make sure you close the gates behind you.

“My old stomping grounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2012

Used to live just below the tower and one of my favorite walks was up the hill to the tower. The views are SPECTACULAR.
