The Bootlegger’s

Hillwalking Club


As from June, we are reviving the club’s organised hikes. This whilst adhering to best practices regarding social distancing.

Any non-members interested in a try out, please contact us through email before joining one of our walks (see the email link below).

For more information on what is/what is not allowed/best practices, see Mountaineering Ireland’s documentation on Covid 19.

Who We Are

The Bootlegger’s Hillwalking Club was founded in 1984. We are a diverse group with many different backgrounds and open to all.

We have walks every Sunday in Wicklow and trips to other parts of the country on bank holiday weekends.

We produce a list of hikes once every 3 months. More specific information is given on the Hike Schedule page. We usually recommend that people come out with us for a few Sundays to get a feel for the club before joining. We have a newcomers walk on the second Sunday of every month.
