Founded in 1997, East Clare Walking Club has members from counties Galway, Clare, Limerick and Tipperary.

A walk is held every second Sunday throughout most of the year, many routes incorporating various stages of the East Clare Way as well as further afield in the Burren, Galtees, Slieve Felim, Connemara, Slieve Bloom, Ballyhoura and the occasional coastal, lakeside or riverside walk.

Walks are for the enjoyment of the countryside rather than for proving fitness, so although some of the routes can be challenging we aim to set a pace to suit all those walking.

Upcoming walks can be found on the Walks tab. The schedule of walks is emailed to club members and we also have a WhatsApp group for members.

We occasionally organise weekends away for club members.

In 2021 members voted to become affiliated with Mountaineering Ireland.

Membership Fees are:

Individual  €40 per annum (includes Mountaineering Ireland fee)

Visitors can join one walk as a guest free of charge. After walking as a guest, you would need to join the club officially to go on other walks.

You can join the club either as a visitor or full member on any of the walks. New members or visitors are always welcome.
