About the Event
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 Wee Binnian Hill Walkers organise this fun-filled Festival, and offer no less than 11 guided walks over the weekend including a Night Walk!
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 ‘Slieve Gullion’ 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 is organised and funded through volunteer efforts. Contact the Wee Binnian Hill Walkers on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Festival website (www.weebinnians.com)
