A little bit about the Bogtrotters

Hello our club is an easygoing ( with decent hikes!) hillwalking club based in Dublin that walks every Sunday and on Tuesday nights during the Summer and early Autumn months.

Origins of the Bogtrotters

The Bogtrotters Hill walking Club was born out of the Dublin Adventure Club over 20 years ago. We
are an easy-going, friendly walking/hiking club based in Rathfarnham Dublin that arranges walks
most Sundays during the year and on Tuesday evenings during the summer months.

We also organise a few weekends away during the year in Ireland and an annual walking week abroad. Occasional cultural and social events take place from time to time and we also have a long running book club that meets 3 or 4 times a year.

We are a small club with about 80 members and each walk sees about 8 to 20 people take part on a
members walk mainly in Wicklow and Dublin.

Bogtrotters club is affiliated to Mountaineering Ireland and all club members are members of MI.
Among the benefits of MI membership is insurance which is necessary as a member. The other
benefits are explained on the New Members page.

We are open to everybody who has the necessary level of fitness and appropriate clothing. Please
see the New Members page for more details
