Dublin LGBT Hillwalking Club

Welcome to Out and About!

Céad míle fáilte! Out and About is a friendly Dublin-based hiking group for the gay and lesbian community and their friends. For 25 years the club has organised regular walks in the local Wicklow Mountains, along with trips to destinations further afield in Ireland and abroad. New members, and visitors to Ireland, are always very welcome to come along and join us for a day out in the mountains.


Gala Nomination

We are delighted to be shortlisted for an award in the 2015 Galas in the Sports category. We are listed alongside famous sports people Donal Óg Cusack and Nikki Symmons, and the Pink Ladies Hockey Club. It is fantastic to get recognition at this level for the wonderful, supportive environment our club has provided for the LGBT community for the past 25 years. For more infomation visit www.galas.ie.
