August 19 2022: Regretfully, the Irish Ramblers Club is currently closed for the recruitment of new members. However, potential Below 5-0 new members should apply here.
While the surge in interest in hill-walking in recent years is very welcome, there is a limit to the numbers we can accommodate on our normal club hikes at all grades at any point in time.
We will be open again at some point in the future for new recruitment, so check back to this page from time to time if you are still interested in joining the Irish Ramblers.
Recruitment, when we are open, usually involves participation in an introductory hike. Participation will give you an understanding of our club and we may be able to advise you on the most suitable grade for you. Details of our grades and the levels at which they are walked can be found on our About our hikes / hill walks page.
We do not keep a list of those waiting to join. The website of Mountaineering Ireland contains a comprehensive list of hiking clubs in Dublin and all of Ireland: https://www.mountaineering.ie/
