Welcome to Hiking in Ireland

This group is a meeting place for everybody that would like to join or organise a hiking trip in Ireland.

Everything from casual Sunday afternoon strolls around the beach to day's trips up the hills to a few days hiking and camping trips, all goes. Geographically speaking we cover the whole island from Giant Causeway to the dramatic windswept cliffs of the west coast.

I'm based in Dublin so most of the hikes I organise will be around the mid-east coast, however this group is called Hiking in Ireland for a reason... I'm asking you to take the initiative and organise a hike on your own neck of the woods :-)

SCROLL DOWN for a guide on how to organise and advertise your own hikes.


1. Create a new event detailing the date, time and place of the initial meeting, approximate length of the hike, methods and costs of transport, what hikers need to wear and bring with them, plus any other useful info.

2. Post a message on the Hiking in Ireland forum with a link to the event page. This is the place to share information and discuss possible plans of action with other members.

3. Why not extend the invitation to non-members? Post a message and event link in the Ireland group and in relevant city groups. Please include a link to this group for people who can't make your event but may wish to join future hikes.

4. Send me a link to the event and I'll advertise it on this page under UPCOMING HIKES.

You can set your communication to INSTANT, DAILY or WEEKLY
to get automatic updates about future plans, but in any case I'll send out event inventions to all of the group members once a hike is confirmed.

Hopping east to Britain? Just keep on walking!

Special thanks goes to Jöé™ Reaney for the inspiration and his help with the setup :-)
