I had doubts about this hike, but after paying my two euros started my hike up the hill to Eask Tower. You'll spend a lot of time looking down on the way up and down to avoid lots of sheep droppings and mud (it had rained earlier that day), but the view at the top of Dingle and the cliffsides...

We walked all the way to the base of the hill on which the tower is situated only to find that you have to pay €2 per adult... We walked from our holiday cottage so didn't bring our wallets or bags and so unfortunately weren't able to walk up to the tower. It's a real shame there are no rambler's... More

Don't miss this - it is known as the Tower of Burnham or Eask Tower. If you are lucky you will get to meet the farmer who owns the land. He lives across the street and is delightful. He also has a hose and brush on the corner of his farm house so you can hose off your boots after... More

We hiked to the Eask Tower in the fog which was a bit eery, but was still fun. It would be even better with the views on a clear day.

What a hidden gem! A beautiful and short walk (although definitely uphill!) up a sheep farm outside of Dingle, which provided great views of the sea and Dingle and its surroundings. So worth the short climb, especially on a nice day -- gorgeous!

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
