Get Ireland Walking!

Get Ireland Walking is the new national walking initiative funded by the Irish Sports Council and the Health Service Executive (HSE). It is led by Mountaineering Ireland, and supported by the Irish Heart Foundation, HSE Health Promotion, Age and Opportunity, Gaelic Athletic Association, Institute of Leisure and Amenity Management, Arthritis Ireland, and others.

The initiative exists to maximise the number of people participating in walking throughout Ireland. The Get Ireland Walking vision is: A culture of walking throughout Ireland resulting in improved health, wellbeing and fitness for society and significant savings in health expenditure.

Get Ireland Walking is working to achieve this vision by providing information advice and guidance about walking, by signposting people to other agencies/organisations active in the promotion of walking and by supporting the setup and development of local community walking groups.

We would encourage you to register your walking group with Get Ireland Walking; registration will give your group access to free insurance cover for your volunteer walk leaders and group coordinators. It will also include your group on a national database of walking groups, which will publicise your group and network you with other walking groups in your area and beyond.

Get Ireland Walking will provide access for you and your group to a central source of information on all walking initiatives and supports in Ireland. The Initiative will also provide a space for your group to share experiences and be part of a national voice for walking in Ireland.

With your involvement we can Get Ireland Walking!

Please register your walking group today by logging on to or by calling 01 6251109, it will only take a few minutes.

If you have any questions on the initiative please contact Grainne at
