Our Club

Welcome to the home page of the Kenmare Walking Club. You can browse the above links to view our calendar, learn about our club & obtain information regarding membership.

Founded in the 1980’s, the club has grown from strength to strength and today has a membership of approximately 100 walkers. We also welcome non-members to join us on our scheduled walks (Non-members are asked to contact walk leaders beforehand).

The club is fortunate that the Caha Mountains & MacGillycuddy Reeks are on our doorstep, with regular club  walks to Carrauntoohil, Ireland’s highest peak.


Our calendar provides a wide range of “A” and “B” walks. We  run regular navigation exercises, night hikes and winter & summer camping trips.  The club organises excursions within Ireland & annual walking tours to Great Britain or Europe.

Kenmare Walking Club welcomes new members or any walkers that wish to join us for an occasional day trip.
