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!

Please check out the calendar of events. Especially for our B walkers, we are going to cover the Beara Way (not in one go!) from Castletownbere to Uragh over 5 Sundays.

We also have a number of Island trips / Camping / Kayaking / Archery / Dingle climbing wall and a Night hike. We even have some A walks!
