Skibbereen Walking Group​​
Rambling & Hillwalking in West Cork

Skibbereen Walking Group ​​

originated in 1998 as an informal group of people who enjoyed exploring their local byways and boreens.  Most of our walking happens in West Cork although we do stray across into Kerry sometimes and occasionally have an away weekend further afield.

We are formally registered with Mountaineering Ireland as the Skibbereen Walking Group.  Affiliation with Mountaineering Ireland has the advantage of  M.I. expertise and insurance cover which includes civil liability and permanent disability accident claims.

The club is open to everyone who enjoys walking and the membership year runs from 1st November to end of October.  We welcome new members all year round and you can come along and see if you like us before you join - the first three road/easy walks are free of charge.  There are currently restrictions on children and young people under 18 years old.
