nice hike up through a field with sheep, great views at the top, steep buy more of a "walk" as opposed to a hike. Worth the effort.

The climb through the sheep pasture up the steep headland was not easy but certainly worth it. Once to the top, we saw Dingle Bay, Ventry Bay, the Blasket Islands, Skirrig Michael, and the village of Dingle. We could see birds flying far below. It...More

This hike was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland. This is a 50-60 minute round-trip, medium difficulty hike with plenty of places to stop, catch your breath and take in the incredible views. There is a small "trespass" fee to be able...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...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...More

Where do you park and how long does this venture take from beginning to end, leaving enough room to enjoy the view from the top? Thank you!

I think Donsafe has answered the question exactly as I would have. I might add that the lady who offered to clean the mud off my boots engaged me in conversation that was worth an extra 20 minutes!
