Wee Binnian Walking Festival

22nd - 24th September 2017

This Festival offers an action packed programme of guided mountain and lowland walks in the Mournes, Slieve Gullion and Cooley Mountains over varying distances and difficulties, catering for all hill walkers. This festival is renowned for great walking and lively social scene.  

Known as the social club that walks, the Newry-based Wee Binnian Walkers organise this fun-filled festival, and offer no less than 9 guided walks over the weekend. So take your pick or use that stamina to tackle them all.

The festival has been much acclaimed for its balance of fabulous landscapes, friendly people and nightly entertainment. The programme offers guided mountain and lowland walks of varying distances and difficulties catering from the novice to the most experienced hill walker. The lower level ‘Gap of the North History Trail’ and ‘Smugglers Walk’ are firm favourites for those who enjoy shorter walks full of history, folklore and great scenery. The Festival also includes the infamous Blister Ball on the Saturday night.

The Wee Binnian Walkers take great pride in the fact that the Festival organised and funded through volunteer efforts. Contact the Wee Binnians Walkers on +44 (0)75 9239 3801 or for ROI callers 00 353 86 843 4440. Each year's programme (once available) can be downloaded at www.weebinnians.com.
