This is a 4 week course, building up, to  you getting to the summit of Lugnaquillia (925m) Leinster’s highest Point.

It is a great way to get fit, lose some of those pounds, put on eating all those mince pies!, enjoy incredible scenery and socialise at the same time.

We will start you off with a relatively easy walk while gradually increasing the length and altitude of the walks each week. The walks are all lead by qualified guides and the group will only travel as fast as the slowest person.

This is not a race but a challenge for you to get to the summit of “Lug” on the final walk.

Advice on clothing, walking gear and some navigation skills will be given over the course of the 4 weeks. The walks have been chosen for the accessibility and of course the wonderful scenery.  

The course starts with our first walk on Jan 7th and continues on gradually to the final summit on Jan 28th.
