This 20 min (uphill) hike to the tower is exhilarating. A young Irish Lass greeted us and collected our 2 euros and directed us to the poster with the history of the tower. The trek up was slightly strenuous but doable. Muddy with lots of evidence of the many sheep in the field - sheep pies. The reward is the... More

Followed the directions to Eask Tower and paid the two Euro entry (based on honor system, but uses sheep farmers land to get to the tower, so please pay). We went during lambing season so there were cute cuddly lambs everywhere. The trail up is pretty obvious most of the way up. Once you get near the top there are... More

Great fun with the family and a small dog. Views are superb on the way up. We were total amateurs to climbing but we managed fine. The kids ran up. Not too much to worry about with clothing and provisions. You're only 15 minutes away from the bottom at the most, where there are houses if you run into difficulty.... More

We walked from our hotel in the centre of Dingle and back. On the way the tower doesn't seem to be getting any closer!! You take the first left, which is a little hidden, a couple of miles from the bridge. Keep walking till you see the sign for the Tower. Tom explains why there is a fee and the... More

We stay in Dingle every year, look up at Eask Tower and promise to walk up to it. This year we finally got around to it. The granddaughter of the farmer who owns the land came out and explained that the tower was on private land, that we would have to pay 2 Euro for the privilege of walking up... More

This is a moderately easy hike that pays off with a great view of Dingle on one side and the Atlantic on the other. Don't wear your best shoes on this trip. The friendly farmer who owns the land (and whom you must pay a modest fee) will invite you to wash your shoes with his hose & brush after... More

We took a walk from town using our guidebook that brought us around the beach area and up to this old tower. It was an extremely cloudy and foggy morning so I'm sure the views would have been great if it were clear. Nice walk, good views, and a fun way to escape the hustle and bustle of the town... More

This was an amazing trip! It was about 2-3 km away from oceanworld. The whole thing with the farmer coming out and the sheep on his hill. A real experience! It was beautiful at the top. Totally worth it! Bring coins to give to the farmer. It is 2 euro per person.

The Eask Tower is on private property, so you need to pay a small fee to access it, and there is fairly limited parking (about 5 spaces), but it doesn't seem to get too many visitors. You get to drive through some very nice farmland (on narrow roads), and if you have a chance to meet the owners, they are... More

You will dodge between rocks and sheep feces but the view is worth every jump and dodge to get up there!! It does cost money but like I said the view is truly spectacular even in the hazy rain!! The man who owns the land is wonderful and charming!! You get to see sheep and lambs up close! But the... More
