A guided hike to the highest mountain in Ireland, Carrauntohill

About this event

Join us on a challenging hike to the highest point in Ireland. It is a fully guided hike with very experienced guides. Small groups sizes guaranteed.

The route will leave Cronins yard and head up to the Lakes before swinging right and climbing O Shea's gully to top out near the summit of Carrauntohil. The route down will be through heavenly gates or the zig zag's and back to the lakes before joining the path back to Cronin's yard. While this is a spectacular walk it is a long hike and is classed as strenuous. If you are unsure about signing up for this please feel free to contact me before hand to have a chat.

Mandatory Hiking Equipment:

  • Hiking boots
  • Rain jacket and pants
  • Rucksack with water, food, snacks, 2 spare fleeces minimum
  • Hat and gloves
  • Headtorch if you have one

This is a challenging hike so you will need a moderate level of fitness and is suitable for those who go out hiking on rough terrain regularly but may not have the confidence to tackle this hike without a guide. Weather can change very quickly so you will need to come prepared for a range of weather.


A detailed breakdown of the gear required, meeting time and location will be emailed out to each person that books in so please make sure your email address is up to date.

Group numbers will be small with no more than 12 people in the group with two guides. Minimum numbers will apply.

The hiking route may be changed, postponed or cancelled due to weather. Please bear in mind that this will only happen if we feel it is unsafe to bring you out.
