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.


Celebrating 25 years: Wicklow Way

We will complete the Wicklow Way in stages over 8 Sundays, starting in Dublin on 8 February and finishing in April in Clonegal, County Carlow. These trail walks are a perfect introduction for novice hikers.

Celebrating 25 years: Photographic Exhibition
