An Óige Weekly Hikes

If you can’t go regularly but are interested to come along for walks close to Dublin, you can come along with the An Óige Weekly Walking Club.

There’s a mid-week hike and a Sunday hike organised for almost every week picking up in the Quays.

It’s first come, first on the bus but you MUST be dressed correctly and have an up-to-date An Óige/HI membership card with you.

Don’t have a membership card? Sign up here.
