What we're about

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 :)

Hike and Camping

The Coach House

We will meet at Roundwood and car pool to a location closer to the camping spot. The walk to the camp spot should only be 3 or 4km. We will pitch the tents and go for a hike around luggala. Lots of hike options here. We may do a shortish approx 15km and a longer approx 23km hike. We will then retreat to the camp site to drink beer and tell ghost stories. Everyone needs to ensure they have appropriate gear and food for an overnight wild camp. If anyone wants to come and doesn't have a tent, post a comment and someone may have a spare one. If anyone wants to just come along for the hike only thats fine too, just make sure you have transport back.
