Eagle’s Rock

Eagle’s Rock in Glenade, County Leitrim would not be out of place in the plains of Dakota, and creates a dramatic landscape. Ireland’s highest freestanding tower; its peak is 330 metres above sea level and can be viewed for many miles in all directions.

Currently the walk to the summit is off limits. However, the view of the rock below is recommended as a dramatic vista and well worth making a trip to the area.

‘Up close, it is one of the most dramatic, even awe-inspiring, rock formations in Ireland’

Michael Guilfoye, Irish Times

Below the rock (which provides an excellent viewing spot) Leitrim County has provided a convenient car park and has a highly informative panel, which tells of glaciers, ancient seas and bears.

Car park 2km east of R280 in Glenade, about 7km south of Kinlough.
