    The Enniskerry Walking Association was formed in 2004 to protect traditional walking routes in the area and to promote walking for recreation, for health, as a safe alternative to car use, and to help us all to learn more
    about our locality.
    Our popular Tuesday evening walks usually meet at the Spar at 7.00 pm. Saturday walks meet at 1.30pm. All who are interested,adults or children, are most welcome. Walks vary in length but most last between one-and-a half and two-and-a-half hours; some (but not all) involve a bit of climbing. Please wear appropriate warm and rain-proof clothing, and proper walking boots for the occasional muddy or rocky track.
    Some walks are designated below as not suitable for dogs and you should bring a lead if you take a dog on other walks.
