Mountaineering Ireland and MountainViews have collaborated to develop an all island list of Irish mountains, capable of acquiring the status and recognition of the Scottish Munro list.  A working group with members from Mountaineering Ireland’s Hillwalking Committee and members of Mountain Views was set up to develop the official list of Irish summits.

The term ‘Arderin’ is symbolic, meaning ‘Ireland’s height’ in Irish, as well as being the name of a hill located close to the geographical centre of the island. 

Challenge yourself – walk the Arderins

Hillwalkers can log Arderins as they complete them on Mountaineering Ireland or MountainViews websites.  There will be recognition of successful completion of the Arderins on an ongoing basis.  To date (August 2020) 9 hillwalkers have completed all 406.

Generally, responsible hillwalkers enjoy unhindered access to Ireland’s mountains and upland areas, due to the goodwill and tolerance of the landowners.  Maintaining access and good relations with landowners and local communities is a shared responsibility among hillwalkers. Even though some routes are well-established, this does not confer a legal right of entry.
