Guided Walk

The Dunmore East tourism group run a rambling festival in May each year with walks around the village and surrounding areas.

The group are organising a walk through the village followed by the spectacular marked walk along the cliff top. A local historian will give insight into the history, flora and fauna, delivered with thoughtful insights and humour. The walk is approximately 2.5 hours and suitable for most fitness levels. The walk will start at the sailing club on Sunday at 11.00am

Pictured here is Noel Power’s wife, Dorothy presenting the memorial trophy to Shane and Trudi of Slack Alice.

Many thanks to Niall Power for his craftsmanship in making this trophy. It’s a fitting tribute to all the time and effort Noel put into the club over the years. He will be dearly missed.
