Becoming a Member of the Galway Walking Club

Whether you are new to the club, renewing for the year or you are an affiliate member of another club, please select your membership type below to join for the coming year.

GWC membership includes Mountaineering Ireland membership so you pay one fee to be a member of both organisations.


Individual = €70.00

If you are already a paid-up member of Mountaineering Ireland (MI) for the upcoming year (through another club), the membership fee = €35.00

Youth membership (18 years-21 years) = €35.00

There is a fee of €10 for guest walkers, up to a maximum of 3 walks. Guests are not permitted on “A” hillwalks. The fee for guest walkers on the Short Walks is €5. Only members of the club can join on club member-only holidays and weekends away.

Membership is only available through Eventbrite. We no longer accept cheques/cash/bank transfer.

MI (Mountaineering Ireland) and GWC (Galway Walking Club) membership run concurrently and membership is valid from 1-Nov to 31-Oct. This applies regardless of when enrollment is registered.

Also, you will be insured from the time you register and pay your membership fee but it can take up to 6 weeks for your MI Membership card to deliver to the club. Please collect your card at a meeting in Tonery’s Bar in Bohermore.

The GWC AGM is held in October each year.
