This was NOT an easy hike, notwithstanding what the guide books say! Yours truly was huffing and puffing up the very steep hill, but what a view once the top was reached! Definitely worth it.

The walk to the Eask Tower is fairly short and great to see the sheep, make sure to close each of the gates as you walk to the top. Each view is wonderful!

The hike up to Eask Tower was worth it for the great views! It was a bit cloudy, but we could still see quite a ways. Very nice farmer who owns the land & was very informative and friendly!! I’d recommend while in Dingle!

Eask Tower was easily atop our best memories while touring the Wild Atlantic Way. It was an off day with a bit of rain but we decided to follow the locals recommendations (always a good idea IMO). We arrived to find a small shed and...More

You would never believe the amazing view that awaits you at the top of the hill where eask tower is located. Not only do you get to walk through a field of sheep, but when you get to the top you can see everything. Gorgeous...More

It was so much fun to walk through the sheep to climb to the top to Eask Tower. A little challenging if you aren’t used to climbing, be sure to wear good shoes. I was in no way prepared for the view from the top....More

Its a couple miles from Dingle. Best to drive, its a good uphill climb once your there. If it has rained take good waterproof boots with good traction, your crossing a working farm.

I would go by and ask the land owner out of courtesy. There are farm sheep in fields, so the owner may want to know if you have a lead or that your dog is under good voice control. We did meet the lady of the property and... More

We will be returning to Dingle for 3 nights, and we hope to enjoy some coastal walks while there (we hope to hike Mt....More
