Friends Hiking Group meet up every week, mainly on a Sunday, to enjoy various walks around the Mournes and further afield including Wicklow, Kerry and Donegal, whilst having a lot of craic. Most members have a lot of experience but beginners are encouraged to join and will be given a lot of support. On occasions we join with other walking clubs, mostly from County Dublin and Kerry for walks in their area. 

We allow each new member up to 2 “free” walks before joining the club, and as we are affiliated to the UFRC each member benefits from Third Party Insurance and club discount. 

We hold a summer barbeque and Christmas party. 

Membership year runs from 1st February to 31st January and annual fees are £20/€25 per person.

    Hello, I’m David I was just wondering when the next available walk was for a beginner and if I could come along. I was going to try a walking group or two and this seemed as good a place as any to begin. I’m a good walker naturally with no known health problems and I’d love to give it a go. Contact me with any details at the email above, cheers, thanks!

      Hi David,
      Thanks for your enquiry about our walks, you would be more than welcome to join us. We walk nearly every weekend mostly on Sundays, but sometimes on Saturday. This weekends walk was to be on Saturday but at the moment with the weather not looking too good we are leaving it till Friday to decide what to do. Hopefully next week will be better and we will be walking on Sunday. If you are on Facebook go to our page, Friends Hiking Group, and put in a request to be added. We will add you and you will be able to see the walks as they are listed, or email us your contact number and we will be in touch regarding the next walk.
      Looking forward to hearing from you,
