About this event

Distance: 10km – 14km Depending on our return route

Height Gain: 800 metres

Time: 4-6 hours (Route chosen depends on group ability)

Fitness Level: Moderate to good fitness

Description of hike: This hike summits the highest inland mountain in Ireland, Galtymore, there are fantastic views for the entirety of the hike. Once some height is gained the route boasts spectacular views of the full mountain range with vistas looking out over counties Limerick, Tipperary, Cork and Waterford. You can even catch a glimpse of the Reeks on a good day!!

From King’s Yard, the walk starts on relatively easy terrain with some lovely narrow trails. Once you are above the farm land, the views open up to show the wonderful landscape. There is a steady climb from the start point up to the top however once you reach the ridge there are lovely views of the Loughs far below you. The hard work is almost done and we will follow the ridge to the summit of Galtee Mor where you can take a much-deserved break and some summit photos. There are a number of options for coming back down so this can be decided on the day by the guide depending on what the groups needs are.

Equipment required:

Rain gear, boots, back pack, water, lunch/food, warm drink, hat and gloves and lots of warm clothes.

It is winter so it will be cold. In general temperature drops by 1 degree every 100metres in height we climb. We will be climbing approx. 800metres so it will be approx. 8 degrees colder at the top. Please bear this in mind when packing your gear for the days hike. Wind chill can make this colder again so please bring the gear listed above.
