Autumn Gathering - Registration now open!

23 August 2023

Registration is now open for Mountaineering Ireland's Autumn Gathering, hosted by Kenmare Walking Club at the Sneem Hotel, Co. Kerry from 20th-22nd October!

Registration for the weekend is €50 which is subsidised by Mountaineering Ireland and includes, talks, activities, workshops, dinner on Saturday evening, a gift, and buses where needed. There is an alternative fee of €20 for those who do not want to attend the Saturday evening dinner in the hotel.

The weekend will start with registration from 6.30pm at the Sneem Hotel where you will receive a gift and full details for the weekend ahead. The welcome talk will take place from 8.00pm. Saturday sees a full programme of activities including hillwalking, navigation and climbing in and around the Kerry Mountains. Sunday morning will have a variety of workshops commencing at 10.00am.

This year’s event takes us to some of the lesser known, yet beautiful, sandstone mountains on the Iveragh Pensinsula. The mountains surrounding Sneem have a wild and rugged character, with corrie lakes, rocky ridges, and big skies above. We also have some scenic sections of the Kerry Way for people to enjoy, all from the charming and colourful town of Sneem nestled on the northern side of Kenmare Bay.

You can book accommodation directly with the Sneem Hotel. Please let the hotel know you are with the Mountaineering Ireland Autumn Gathering at the time of booking accommodation to avail of a special rate.
