Walking Waterford & Beyond is a Walking Group that's all about single, widowed, divorced or separated people meeting up, making new friends and enjoying what the Great Irish countryside has to offer. Over 21's only. We are fully registered with Mountaineering Ireland .
It's about walking in the countryside, its about people connecting with each other who otherwise might be at home feeling its to dangerous or lonely to go alone. Its also about meeting likewise people to go and explore the many and various walks of Waterford and beyond with. Its about walking, friendship, companionship and enjoyment. Have you ever driven past a sign post, or footpath sign and wished you could go and explore it, but had no one to go with, now is your opportunity to go with Walking Waterford & Beyond. Our walks are a voyage of discovery, of new places, new people, new friendships and enjoying what our famous Irish Countryside has to offer.
Our walks are usually around 10-16km in length. A moderate level of fitness is required for the walks as they can be tough enough at times. The terrain varies from week to week, and there is usually information about what clothes and footwear will be needed for each designated walk on the information page of that walk on meetups.
We meet at our designated spot and car pool from there to where our walk begins. The driver gets a donation for driving. €3 inside Waterford, €5 outskirts.
In accordance with mountaineering Ireland, we run a Leave No Trace policy and No Dogs Allowed (unless they are assistance dogs)
We always go for a bite to eat afterwards and a chin wag about life. Bring money for lunch.
