Welcome to the Mid Tipp Hill Walkers' web site. Our group offers a full suite of upland experiences, ranging from easy low-level rambles to challenging mountain routes and rock climbs.
If you are new to hill walking, you can use this site as a starting point for all you need to know. You can see a brief history of our club in the About us section. Existing members can check out club news, view details of upcoming climbs and social events, add photos, and contribute to our blog.
Organised hill walks take place on almost every Sunday throughout the year. On each Sunday there is a high-level walk, while on alternate Sundays a slower-paced, moderate walk is on offer. There is also rock-climbing every Tuesday evening throughout the summer. Guided low-level rambles take place every Friday from May until September. Regular social events are also organized.
The Mid-Tipp Hill Walkers club has been in existence now for 20 years, founded back in 1991. Over the years, hill walking has fast become one of the most popular pastimes in Ireland.
The best, safest and most enjoyable way to enjoy the mountains of Ireland is to join a hill walking club. By joining our club, you can benefit from the guidance of experienced hill walkers, and at the same time, meet and make friends with like-minded people.
Hill walking offers breathtaking views of valleys, snow-capped peaks, and corrie lakes. The tranquility that you will find in the ruggedly beautiful Irish mountain ranges is second to none. You cannot help but be relaxed in and inspired by the exhilarating fresh air and the peaceful surroundings, away from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
From an exercise point of view, hill walking is a great way of getting fit and offers a good general workout. It can be a very strenuous activity, so it is very important to start off slowly and build your fitness up gradually. All beginners are welcome and we offer guided walks suitable for all fitness levels; from low-level rambles to challenging high-level mountain routes and rock climbs.
Our group organises several away events each year including 2 charity challenges to the best of Ireland's mountain ranges. There are also regular winter climbing trips to Scotland, a June meet to the UK Mountains, and usually a major away trip in the latter half of the year.
