The vista views from the top are totally worthwhile, and even better than we expected! The hike is long and not easy. We went on a sunny day and it was still quite muddy. You walk through steep hills, next to sheep. Do not stop halfway up -- go to the top! Views cannot be beat. Unique and perfect for... More

We had such a great time on the Dingle Peninsula, and the hike up to Eask Tower may have been the best couple of hours we experienced. If you look around while in Dingle and see the mound next to town with some sort of structure at the top, it's where Eask Tower is located. What you do is follow... More

Generally easy walk up hill. We stopped a few times to catch our breath since in our late 50's and enjoyed too much of the best Dingle has to offer. We were rewarded at the top with magnificent views of Dingle Bay and the Ocean. This was worth every step around sheep droppings and muddy footing at times. As others... More

Curiously the only sign to this really worthwhile place is at its carpark, and the GPS seemed to want to take me somewhere in the opposite direction. From Dingle, look across the water to the top of the highest hill. That's it. Now find a way to get there ( cross the bridge on route to Slea Head, and turn... More

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
