What a journey it will be, taking us all over the country to share the hills and valleys of Ireland together. Naturally, this won’t happen overnight! It’s going to take time and commitment from us all to tick off each and every one of the Highest Hundred Irish Peaks.
Groups will be limited in size to 10* people for myriad reasons, including:
You will be guided by qualified, experienced Mountain Leaders.
Overnight camp may be added between walks conducted over the same weekend, access and interest permitting. Details to follow.
There are also some t&cs, notably:
*The standard practice ratio of ML to participant is 1:12. There may be fewer places available on some, more technical hikes. €55pp per technical hike. We will not be using technical routes in the Leinster round.
This list of the Highest 100 mountains in Ireland, is the result of collaboration between the late Joss Lynam, Simon Stewart and the team at MountainViews.ie and the staff and members of Mountaineering Ireland. The award-winning guidebook, Irish Peaks, is a wonderful collection of 72 hill-walking routes encompassing these. Our own routes to these summits, may not necessarily follow these.
If you clicked the MountainViews.ie link, you might notice some well-known, high mountains don’t seem to feature. This is because, to be categorized as one of the Highest 100, the summit of the mountain must have a ‘prominence’ of at least 100m. In other words, it needs to be a distinct peak in its’ own right. So, if you are standing on one high mountain, you need to descend and then climb up again at least 100m for that second summit to have a prominence of 100m.
There are other lists of mountains that hill-walkers like to bag. You may have already heard of Munro bagging in Scotland – there are 284 of these 3,000ft (914m) peaks! In Ireland, we also have the 273 Vandeleur-Lynams (600m+) and the 406 Arderins (500m+ with 30m prominence). Naturally, over the course of our routes, we will tick off a good portion of those too. Who knows where this might lead?
