Welcome to the Galtee Walking Club

Hello and fáilte to the Galtee Walking Club, Cnocadóiri na Gaibhlte, based in and around Tipperary in Ireland. Our club has been in existence since 2003 and was founded by a core group of hill walking enthusiasts from around the foothills of the Galtee mountains and the Glen of Aherlow in South Tipperary. Since then, it has grown and diversified and now has a membership drawn from a wide area. We offer a number of different graded walks on a weekly basis throughout the year which are available to new members or to those wishing to join us for an introductory hike (Details about how to join are on the Membership page).  more
