Welcome to the Ballyhoura Bears Hillwalking Club

Hello and welcome to the website of the Ballyhoura Bears hillwalking club. We are a long established group based in beautifull Ballyhoura country. Kilfinane, Co. Limerick is our home town and starting point for many of our walks. Other walks begin in the picturesque villages and hamlets dotted around the area.
With the generosity and goodwill of local landowners, in co-operation with Coillte and Ballyhoura Failte, generations of Bears have helped to develop and maintain an impressive network of marked walking routes in counties Cork, Limerick and Tipperary.
We also enjoy close proximity to the Galty, Comeragh, and Knockmealdown ranges. When time allows we travel to more distant mountains throughout our lovely island and venture abroad annually.
We organise a variety of walks all year round with a pace and distance to suit everyone.
We have Saturday morning walks, Thursday evening walks and on Sundays we organise level A and B walks close to home or furtherafield.
The best thing about the Ballyhoura Bears is our membership. Generous with their time and knowledge of local and distant trails. Always eager to introduce others to the benefits of spending quality time with Mother Nature.
