About Us

Foyle Hillwalking Club is located in the North West of Ireland. We provide a weekly programme of walks, alternating between Saturdays and Sundays.  While some of our walks are on forest trails and paths many are in mountainous areas where there are no paths.

Our walks are throughout Donegal, The Sperrins and the North Coast. Regularly we organise walking weekends throughout Ireland.

All our walks are led by a Club member who has the  skills to navigate in the mountains and lead groups. We encourage our members to gain the skill to navigate themselves and support them to take courses.

Foyle Hillwalking Club is affiliated to the Mountaineering Council of Ireland and all our members are also members of the MCI and hold the MCI Insurance.

We encourage our members to respect the countryside, to be aware that we are often walking on privately owned farmland, to remember to close gates and be careful not to damage fences, not to leave any trace behind. Dogs are not allowed on our walks.
