 Alternative Walks

Walks starting later will occur on similar dates to the listed walks. As yet a calendar will not be formulated. Info on these walks will appear on the Facebook page prior to the date .


Our walks are not graded. Everyone does the same walk therefore a good level of fitness is required. On the day the walk leader can refuse to take someone who is not properly equipped or whom they consider to be not fit enough. The leader also decides on the route to be taken and has the authority to decide to cancel, postpone, shorten or reroute if the conditions demand it. They may also decide to move the walk to the Saturday if they feel the weather will be more favourable.

Members are required to bring adequate gear to meet the adverse weather conditions and any emergencies that can occur in the mountain environment. The following is a list of recommended gear: - Suitable boots, raingear, maps, compass, whistle, torch, suitable clothing for the conditions (No Denims), gloves, hat, enough food and drink for the day and lastly a suitable rucksack with waterproof liner. NB No Dogs.  ATTENTION: Walks leaders and wall managers; please make alternative arrangements if unable to attend.






26th. DEC. CLIMB

We don't appoint a leader for this climb as the number of people on the mountain would make it impossible to marshal. Members can make their own arrangements for the climb

The Climbing Wall will open on Thursday  29th. Sept.  from 7 to 9pm. The fee is €5 per evening or €50 for the entire season up to the end of March.
Membership is €50 per annum from 1st Nov to 31st.Oct. Associate membership is €15. If you are MI insured and would like to join us on any of our walks, day participation is €5 per walk. The Club membership is comprised of MI insurance and the quarterly Mountain Log.
You can now pay the membership online by bank transfer. (Don't forget to include your name on the transaction so that we can recognise the payee).

Walks are for KMC members. Non-members are welcome to join us for two trial walks (see our walks calendar). You can let us know as to which walks you would like to attend via e-mail ( or message us via our Facebook page. If you wish to join the club after the trial walks please print out a copy of the membership form and bring this with you along with the membership fee on your next walk.

As parking is restricted in some of the areas that we visit we recommend car sharing to minimise the number of vehicles.

Currently we hold two walks on the designated Sunday. The main walks are listed in the calendar. These generally start early and can be long and strenuous. The alternative walks start later and are easier. These are advertised on an ad hoc basis at the moment. information on both walks will be sent to members and will be published on our Facebook page on the Friday/Saturday preceding the walk.


The Club AGM will be held in Kate Kearney's Cottage on Sunday October 30th. following the Club walks. All members are welcome to attend.
