Dingle Eask Tower
Short Summary created by aidand,  14 Aug 2017
This is a modest climb, but with wonderful views. Take the road out of Dingle towards Ventry. After about a mile turn left at a sign marked 'Hanlon's handbags'. There is a parking area with a hut and a sign for Eask Tower. There is an entry charge of €2 per adult. It's a short steep climb up through farmland. The top has a large tower, presumably a marker to help boats find the entry to Dingle Harbour. There is also a coast guard hut dating from World War 2 and a pillar erected to mark the Holy Year of 1950. The views are excellent in all directions. A great place to bring kids, but beware of the steep drop on the seaward side. You might even see Fungie! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1042/comment/5801/
