Howl at the Moon 2022!

Join Galway Mountain Rescue for a unique opportunity to take a 9km or an 17km night walk along the forest tracks and walking paths through the Galway Wind Park under the light of a full moon. Organised with support from Coillte, SSE Ireland, Galway County Council and Penn Engineering, proceeds from this event will be used to support Galway Mountain Rescue Team’s long-term objective of constructing a dedicated mountain rescue base.

The full route is 17km long, with an altitude gain of 384m.

The shorter option is 9km long, with an altitude gain of 185m (the northern half of the full Fig-8 route).

Participants will be briefed on the walk and will be given a copy of the Walk Route Map. The route will also be signposted and marshalled.

Further details on the event are available on
