Welcome to sneem
walking club

Failte! Welcome to the Sneem Walking Club (SWC), based in the “knot” of the Ring of Kerry, the picturesque village of Sneem. The club was founded in March 2004, with a membership of 22, which has since grown.

Members are affiliated to Mountaineering Ireland (MI) which provides us with the necessary insurance. The club provides members an opportunity to meet, participate and see the beauty of the southwest of Ireland while out on our walks.

We aim to walk every Sunday from January to June, and from September to December. During the summer season, several members also gather for mid-week walks. We look forward to welcoming new members on one of our walks

Kind Words From Our Walkers

Fergal Harrington Álaind Walking

I'm so glad I joined Sneem Walking Club, which introduced me to so many wonderful friends and beautiful parts of Kerry. The company is always good and I have a great many fond memories of our walks and experiences. I'd recommend Sneem Walking Club to everyone who loves to walk & talk and see the hidden gems of places in Kerry.

I've been a member of Sneem Walking Club since 2016. My wife Michele and I found the Club an enjoyable and easy way to meet new friends when we moved to the village. We've seen so much of the amazing Kerry countryside since then too. I always look forward with excitement to the next Club outing.
