Welcome to the Clare Outdoor Club

Clare Outdoor Club is an outdoor pursuits club with membership drawn from Clare and neighbouring counties. A member club of Mountaineering Ireland, our members are active in a wide variety of outdoor activities both at home and abroad.
Hillwalking, rock climbing, canoeing and cycling are the order of the day and we organise a full calendar of events during the year. Due to our location in the mid-west of Ireland we are able to strike out to a wide range of locations on our day trips, from Connemara to Kerry, over to the Galtees and the Comeraghs, taking in the mountains, rivers and roads on the way.
Lots of good experience has been built up with some people going on to do ‘Leadership’ courses in their preferred disciplines, using this skill and knowledge to benefit all members.
We extend a warm welcome to all of our new members!
