Kilfinane OEC is located in Ballyhoura Country, which is a walkers paradise. We provide Hillwalking & Mountaineering experiences at all levels to include Introductory Hillwalks, Gaisce Expeditions, Navigation and Skills training.
The Centre is just a few minutes drive from the Ballyhoura Mountain range and within easy reach of the Galty mountains.
The sense of achievement & teamwork felt on reaching a challenging peak such as Galtymor for the first time makes Hillwalking a great activity for school or youth groups and for this reason is included in nearly all our multi-activity programmes.
From an educational perspective Hillwalking can have many outcomes in areas such as teamwork, preparation, navigation skills, geography and enviornmental studies.
Kilfinane OEC also provides Mountain Skills Training for clubs or small groups on demand
