Welcome to the Galtee Walking Club

Hello and failte to the Galtee Walking Club, Cnocadóiri na Gaibhlte, based in and around Tipperary in Ireland. Our club has been in existence since 2003 and was founded by a core group of hill walking enthusiasts from around the foothills of the Galtee mountains and the Glen of Aherlow in South Tipperary. Since then, it has grown and diversified and now has a membership drawn from a wide area. We offer a number of different graded walks on a regular weekly basis throughout the year which are available to new members or to those wishing to join us for an introductory hike.  more

New Members Welcome

This is the best time of year to join a walking club because membership taken out now will last until October 31st 2023. The Galtee Walking Club would be delighted to welcome new members and you don't need to be extremely fit to take part. Most people should be well able to do the 2 hour C walks and you could try the longer walks as your fitness improves. Details of how to join are on the New Members page.

Club Leadership Training from Mountaineering Ireland

Mountaineering Ireland are offering club leadership training with a qualified instructor for free this autumn. The purpose of the training is to provide informal training for club leaders tailored to the club’s needs with a focus on building members confidence to lead and encourage more leaders within clubs.
The date allocated to the Galtee Walking Club is Sunday 16th October, starting at 0930 hrs and concluding by 1600 hrs. The location is Rathgormack, Co. Waterford.
The plan will be to first spend an hour or so having a conversation about leading walks in a club setting, including group management and dealing with an emergency. Afterwards, head out on to the hill for some practical navigation, re-capping the key elements of the Mountain Skills Syllabus.
Each participant will need the East West Map of the Comeraghs and a compass.
The maximum group size is 8 and there are still some places available to any Galtee Walking Club members who would like to take part.
If you are interested, please contact Tom Lyons on 086 3954924 as soon as possible.
