ABOUT US

We have approximately 70 members, and organise scheduled walks for three levels –

A. - Multiple summits including scrambling. 4 to 7+ Hours. 900 to 1500 mtrs ascent.

B. - Single summit, some light scrambling. 3 to 5+ Hours. 600 to 1200 mtrs ascent.

C. - Trail walks up to about 500 meters altitude.  2 to 5+ Hours.

We are a Hillwalking Group, so people who join us need to have a reasonable level of fitness.

Members should have the proper gear (i.e. strong hiking boots, with waterproof outerwear)

We also encourage people to bring a complete change of clothes for the end of the walk, as we usually go to a pub or café for an hour or so afterwards.

Upon completing an Application Form,  we allow prospective members to try out our Club and to join us for two walks without making a commitment.

Membership of Westport Hillwalkers includes Mountaineering Ireland membership and the club pays 50% of all Mountaineering Ireland skills courses.
