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.

  • Awesome views! Worth the short hike. Woman across the street (owner of the land) very friendly.
  • Really nice climb with spectacular views as a reward. The tower can be see from the town and beckons the onlooker. Only a short 12min drive from the town centre.. Not too steep a climb so accessible to all levels of fitness. The views from the top out across the Atlantic towards the Iveragh peninsula are unreal.As well as the views looking back down on Dingle town.
