" The Lee Valley Hill Walking Group are a great bunch of people. Very friendly group and great walks. The best part is that you can go at your own pace and there is a lovely positive flow while walking. The locations that Catherine picks are just so beautiful. Catherine is like a fountain of knowledge from nature to mountains, she has it well covered! Catherine is so friendly and welcoming. I had a great time out walking with her and all the gang."

Walks ‘as Gaeilge’
Is brea linn an teanga agus ta failte roimh gach einne Gaeilge a labhairt ar na siuloidi


What they said:

"Joining Lee Valley Walking has introduced me to the delights of hill-walking. I've explored and enjoyed so many hidden treasures that lie almost on my own doorstep. Catherine's enthusiasm and passion for the environment ensures that we don't just walk the tracks that lead to the lakes and rivers, valleys and mountains but also take time to 'stop and stare' and admire the wonderful world around us. Through Lee Valley Walking I've had the opportunity to meet so many lovely, interesting people and to have lots of laughs along the way."

"I recently participated in a walk organised by Lee Valley Walking. It was a truly enjoyable experience. The guide knew the area and the history so well. The atmosphere in the group was welcoming and we walked at a pace that suited everyone in the group. A wonderful experience in a most scenic area. I look forward to taking part in more of the walks."

"Thanks for the weekend Catherine. It was a brilliant happy go lucky few days on the Sheep's Head."

Irish language walks
Siuloidi as Gaeilge

Tá na siuloidi oiriúnach do dhaoine atá ag foghlaim na teangan.
Uaireanta is dócha go mbíonn eagla ar dhaoine atá ar bheagáin Gaeilge nách mbeidis in ann comhrá a choimeád le daoine atá lán líofa, agus ní bhíonn deis acu labhairt le chéile go neamhfhoirmúil.
Ní ranganna atá i gceist anseo in aon chor agus níl aon teagasc ar fáil. Deis atá ann chun muinín a thabhairt dóibh as a gcumas labhartha.

Participants in Lee Valley Walking events have found that walking ‘as Gaeilge’ or using the Irish language is an excellent way of improving their command of the spoken language in a relaxed atmosphere outside of the classroom.
All walks are Irish friendly and all it takes is two people with an interest in improving their ‘cúpla focal’ (or ‘few words of Irish’) to start up a conversation in the language. Bilingual events can also be arranged in english and ‘as Gaeilge’.

Group walks

Already a member of a non-walking group - let us take the hassle out of organising a healthy active and fun day out for you and your group exploring fantastic landscapes with lots of local info.
