Welcome to the web site of Kenmare Walking Club. Whether you are a current member or a browsing guest interested in walking we hope you find the site of interest.
Founded in the 1980s the club has grown from strength to strength and today has a permanent membership of around 100 regular walkers and many non-members join us annually on our organised walks. (Non-members are asked to contact walk leaders beforehand.)
Kenmare is situated in the middle of the most impressive mountain ranges in Ireland and the highest peak, Carrauntoohil, is a regular parking spot for the club!
We have a wide range of "A" and "B" walks to suit the shorter winter days. We can look forward to a night hike and winter camp. Check out the calendar for some excellent walks in the Caha Mountains and Reeks. We will hold some training evenings during the winter.
