This is a hiking group based mainly around the Wicklow and Dublin mountains. We will also do weekend hikes in other parts of Ireland and the occasional trip abroad. The weekend hikes will be reasonably fast paced and if doing these hikes you are expected to have a good level of fitness and some hiking experience. We welcome adults of all ages. Unfortunately, as we often hike across private land, we cannot accommodate dogs on any hikes.
Hikes will vary in distance and ascent. If you are unsure if you have the required level of fitness you are welcome to come on one of the shorter hikes to try it out. All hikes are free of charge.
There are no leaders on these hikes, there will be one or more organiser who will choose the route and everyone is responsible for their own safety during the hike.
Everyone is expected to have appropriate hiking gear, boots/trail shoes, warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers. No jeans. Head torch required on evening hikes during the darker months. Also bring sufficient food and water for the hike duration.
Having fun and a laugh along the way is not mandatory but is actively encouraged :)
