Climb 182 m (600 ft) above sea level to Eask Tower for breathtaking views of Dingle Harbour and the surrounding Dingle peninsula. The 10.6 m (35 ft) high stone tower was built in 1847 and provided work during the Great Famine. It features a wooden finger post that signals to sailors to let their sails down as they make their way into the blind harbor. The tower originally reached a height of 8.2 m (27 ft), however additional stone was added during renovations.

  • Extraordinary view! To do without hesitation even in bad weather we were delighted with this beautiful ride. The farmer, very friendly, (who asks 2 euros per adult) gave us very interesting explanations about the tower and its origins.
