Welcome to the Galtee Walking Club

Hello and fáilte 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.

* Gift Membership *

Do you know someone who enjoys walking and would appreciate a Christmas gift with a difference? Why not give them a gift of membership of the Galtee Walking Club for 2023. See the gift membership page for further information and booking.

* Upcoming Walks *

This week we have 4 walks on offer:
- On Wednesday December 7th, Martina Lonergan will lead a night hike to Lough Curra, the night of the last full moon of 2022. It's forecast to be cold and even colder as we climb higher towards Lough Curra, so bring warm layers and a head torch to light up your way!
- Next weekend, we are kindly invited to the Sliabh Mish mountains in Kerry by the Ballyhoura Bears. If you'd prefer to stay closer to the Galtees, Tom Lyons is leading a walk to Temple Hill by Combaun Wood - on this walk, Tom will share some of his navigation skills with anyone who wishes to learn (bring OSI sheet 74 or East West map if interested in learning). Margaret Hayes will lead a C walk in the Glen of Aherlow, meeting at Rock an Thorabh.
Non-members are welcome to try out a walk. See the schedule page for further information and booking.
