This is a hike up the mountain to see Eask Tower and the surrounding views. It is like you are at the top of the world.

Unpleasant
Jul 2021 • Family
Do not do this walk. The farmer/owner is rude and obnoxious. He Confronted our family as we finished the walk to accuse us of not paying the 4 euros (incorrect - so I left him another fiver to appease him). We missed the ‘no dogs’ sign as we entered but held our dog on a tight lead but yet he accused me of letting the dog off. A very un nice man who I am sure declares all of his ‘honor box’ money to the revenue commissioner. The pathway to the top is unkept and full of Pooh, the view at the top is lovely but ruined by our experience of this really unpleasant person waiting for us at end of the walk, pointing fingers at me a d my family, who would not accept my apology for taking the dog and in front of my family insisted on calling me a liar. This leaves a sour taste of our experience in Kerry.

What a view!
Jun 2021
We had a lovely chat with the lady who collects a small sum for access to this walk. The first part is full of sheep poo but shoes can be cleaned at the farm afterwards - all good organic stuff as was pointed out to us! The view from the tower was amazing and the foxgloves and other wild flowers were beautiful. We sat and read our books at the top as it was a lovely day.

The place has gorgeous views. Payment required. The private land holders on the walk here has permiter not well secured and looks almost abandoned. Very scary!

Always outstanding at Eask Tower - and on return journey after long ( essential) work days to hang out beside roaring fire in evening with the knowledge that I wake up to a stunning view and terrific brekkie by Anne. Next time I come will hopefully be for fun only. Hats off every time for terrific service and hospitality by Anne, Michael, Tom and Colm. 100% recommend.

Muddy walk but worth it

Prepare for mud or borrow wellies from the very kind and helpful local, either way worth short hike for view.

Fantastic

Climbed up to the Eask tower today. Amazing. There was no one at the entrance so we just put our money in the little box. Loved the walk up the hill amongst the sheep. The view once you are up is incredible. Not an easy walk but so worth it.

Great View of The Atlantic and Dingle
Oct 2019
GPS couldn't figure out where it was but a quick look online and talk with the staff at the B & B and we were on our way. The road to the tower is only about 1.5 cars wide so you should approach with caution and be ready to move to the left when cars approach.
There is a little structure at the base across the street from a home but no one was there when we came. They generally ask for a 2Euro access fee which is very fair and used to maintain the path up. You will pass through a sheep owners property so be courteous and close the gates behind you. Took us about 30 minutes to the top and it had just rained so the walk was slippery in the lush grass. Lots of scattered sheep poo as we got closer but we had our hiking boots on for traction.
Great views once up top. Bring a bottle of wine or something to toast the view. Great shots at sunset.

Fun workout
Sep 2019
We hiked up to Eask Tower on an overcast day so didn’t get much of a view, but still enjoyed it very much. There’s parking on the right when you arrive, and a little hut with an honesty box where you can leave your 2 euros to pay for trail maintenance. After that you just go through the sheep gate and start climbing. It’s 2 kilometers out and back, 500 ft. of elevation, and there are sheep droppings everywhere- I tried to avoid stepping on them, but it isn’t easy! Looking back we could see Dingle across the harbor. It was windy at the top and hard to see anything, but on a clear day I would guess that the view is stunning. Coming back down we managed to lose the trail, which is really just a mowed path at times. I recommend trying to keep track of where the path is as you approach the tower, and don’t forget to close all of the sheep gates!
