Most walks begin at Tom Long’s Pub in Dingle at 10am. Walks are scheduled on alternate Sundays. Members also walk on off-schedule Sundays. The choice, duration and grade of these unscheduled walks usually depends on weather conditions. Feel free to join us for these walks as well. Most of our walks are in the West Kerry mountains, from the Slieve Mish to Mt. Eagle. We also on occasion walk in the Killarney area. This offers a huge abundance of choice, breath-taking scenery and wide variety of walks. Mt. Brandon alone offer an amazing array of approaches.
