Pride is important everywhere..not just in big urban cities, so we're taking to the hills (the highest one in fact) to celebrate and show our love and support for our LGBTQ+ community!

What can I expect from a hike up Carrauntoohil with Roam Wild?

Located in Kerry, Carrauntoohil is arguably the most famous peak in Ireland. Standing proudly at 1,039 meters (approx. 3,400 ft), it is the highest mountain in the country. You will meet your guide and fellow hikers at 10 am in Cronins Yard. The hike begins at 10.30 am with a steady walk into the Hag’s Glen and begins to ascend via the Devil’s Ladder (the major access route to the mountain) up to the saddle. Turning right from there, we will then begin the final ascent to the beautiful summit of the mountain. Here you will give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back, before soaking up the views from the very top of Ireland. After a quick cuppa and a bite to eat, we will retrace our path back down to the saddle, then down the zig-zag path before rejoining the trail back to our starting point. Now that you've probably well and truly built up an appetite, you will finish off the day with something small to eat and drink with your fellow hikers in Cronin's Yard Cafe.

How long will it take?

Depending on your fitness levels, how many breaks you want to take, and how often you stop for photos, the whole hike can take from 6hrs - 8hrs total.

What should I wear?

This is Ireland after all, so we do recommend you come prepared with waterproof boots and waterproof clothing! Walking trousers or comfortable athletic clothes are ideal..please don't wear jeans! Being that this is a pride event, don't forget to wear your rainbows with PRIDE! Mountain footwear is essential as this hike covers a rough mountain path that is rocky and unstable in some places. You may be turned away by the guide if you arrive in inappropriate footwear!

Do I need to bring my own food and drink?

Yes! Please bring an adequate supply of drinking water for the hike and something light to eat during our short break at the top... can't go wrong with sandwiches and a flask of tea!

Anything else?

Yes, don't forget your camera and your sense of adventure!

This hike is graded as ‘Strenuous’ and requires a good level of fitness. Strictly no dogs allowed.

Please note that this event is subject to a minimum of ticket sales. If that number is not met, the event will be canceled and you will be issued a full refund. Over 18's only.
