Visited this with a friend of mine while we were in Dingle. The tower is a sold structure that was built to show the way to fishermen returning to Dingle harbour. The harbour is hidden so a beam projecting from the tower pointed the way to the fishermen. The tower is on private land but access is easy. There is... More

Threasa and her husband couldn't be more helpful,armed full of knowledge and tips on getting to the tower. Its a nice walk,not too long but a challenge for those who wouldn't be super fit (like me! ) photographic opportunities depend on the weather,I think I got lucky,the day wasn't amazing but i was happy. This is defiantly a must when... More

Awesome views after a nice little hike through some pasture. Tom & Poge the dog were a real treat to see at the check-in hut by the roadside

Eask Tower is a hike straight up a hill through active pastures. Irish working dogs greeted us at the gate. Sheep ran away as we approached. The rain marched across the bay and rainbows appeared as we approached the top. It was as if the Irish Travel Commission planned the hike. But that wasn't all - once we got to... More

Just outside of Dingle off the start of the Slea Head drive, you park outside a farmer's hut, pay 2 euro for maintenance of the land, and you hike up to the old tower (history is inside the hut!) It offers great views of the coast and of Dingle and Dingle Bay. Highly recommend!

We trekked up to the tower early one morning...we weren't planning to, but we could see it from the room we were staying in, and it seemed something good to do early in the day before other things were open. We were the only people there, and the views were totally worth it. There are a LOT of sheep in... More

I think this photo says it all! the views from the tower, the lush fertile fields, and the sheep, which are everywhere

It's a bit of an uphill hike through the sheep pastures, but worth it for the views of Dingle. And the landowner was very friendly and talkative as she washed off our shoes with a hose and brush, because of all the sheep dung. We could have stayed and talked with her all day!

If you are in good shape, definitely try this one for an amazing view. If it has been raining, take your rubber boots (wellies). You will likely meet Mrs. O'Connor, because you'll walk through her pastures to get to the tower.

A very steep hike until the top, but the view is to forever be in my memories. It is better to bring boots or some hiking shoes. I went with my timberland boots and it was very useful. There are some mud paths and manure, which can be very slippery. But you can avoid them with care on where you... More
