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 held successful navigation theory training in September, and while the night navigation and night hike are for ALL, it will be of special benefit for the new navigators!
We hope you will join us on the hills in walks and outings during in the coming months.
We extend a warm welcome to the MCI who we are hosting on October 18th/20th for their Autumn gathering.
We access land with the kind permission of landowners. Please be aware that this is the farmer's livelihood and refrain from any activities which could jeopardise this.
