Welcome to the Galtee Walking Club
Hello and fáilte to the Galtee Walking Club, Cnocadóiri na Gaibhlte,
based in and around Tipperary in Ireland.
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
weekly basis throughout the year which are available to new members or
to those wishing to join us for an introductory hike (Details about how to join are on the Membership page
