Blackrock Hillwalking Club


Printer Friendly, PDF & Email

We are club based in Cork City - we have about 100 members and the club is about 15 years old.

We have an active walks calendar with a selection of walks most weekends. We are lucky to have some great walking within striking distance of the city - both in the mountains and coastal walks.

Membership runs from November of each year to the following October (this lines up with membership of Mountaineering Ireland - our 'parent' organization).

Membership costs €55 for the year. This allows you to join all our activities, regular weekend walks, weekends away, trips abroad, and other outings like the annual summer BBQ. You will receive the schedule by email when it is published. The week before a walk you will also receive a text with details of the walks for the upcoming weekend. This includes membership of Mountaineering Ireland - which includes public liability insurance.

If you are already a member of MI, you can take out associate membership with the club for a reduced fee of €24.50.

This page has subpages : Club Rules, Data Protection Policy and Membership form.

We are always happy to welcome new members - you are welcome to come on 1 or 2 walks before joining so you can figure out if this is the right activity and club for you. If you are not a regular walker it is best to start with the C grade of walks.
