Rhododendron Walking Festival

Rhododendron Walking Festival

In summer 2018 the inaugural ‘Rhododendron Walking Festival‘ took place along the tracks and trails of  Clogheen and surrounding areas (see the videos at the bottom of the page if you don’t know the area). 2018 was a huge success and the 2019 event was even more successful, with over 1,000 walkers taking to the beautiful tracks and trails of the Knockmealdown and Galtee Mountains.

This much anticipated event, organised by the Rhododendron Walking Festival Committee, will be held again in 2020 over the June Bank Holiday Weekend (May 29th, 30th, 31st and June 1st). If you wish to be informed when walks are ready for booking just sign up for updates with your name and email address in the subscription box on the right hand side of the site and we’ll let you know what is on and when.
