Visit Eask Tower

A tower, built on Carhoo Hill

Originally, the Dingle Eask Tower was built to guide ships and boats wishing to enter Dingle Harbour.

Considered to be a practical indicator for the latter, it indicated to them by mere presence, to reduce the sail area, and to reduce their speed to better approach the coast.

The Eak Tower requires a bit of walking to get there. Built on Carhoo Hill, the slope is steep, but the access path is rather short.

Built in stone, the tower has lost some of its original height, but is rather easy to spot. Slightly domed at its base, it gradually narrows towards the top.

It offers an exceptional view of the surroundings. You can enjoy an exceptional panoramic view of Blasket Island, Slea Head, Dingle Bay, the Iveragh Peninsula, or Ventry… To top it all off, you can also admire Carrauntoohill and Brandon Mountain, Kerry’s 2 largest mountains.

A nice walk then, for a tower that promises to reward your efforts with a rather nice view in clear weather!
