UCD Mountaineering Club

Getting High Since 1961

the outdoors awaits

If you love spending time outdoors then this is the club for you! No experience is necessary and we will teach you all the skills you need to become competent and safe hiking and climbing!

Membership is €20 for the year and you must be a UCD student, staff or graduate to join. This €20 allows you to come to any of our training hours in the climbing wall where we will teach you all the skills you could possibly want, absolutely free! We also significantly subsidise all hikes, trips and training courses. 


Have a read through the FAQs before contacting us, you may well find your answer here! If you have a suggestion to add to the FAQs, shoot us an email or a message on Facebook or Instagram!

You can sign up online here or you can sign up in person at any of our training times!

Mon & Wed: 12-2pm
Tue & Thu: 5-8pm

You need to have passed your belay test with us before you can come to the afternoon sessions.

That’s no problem at all, most people join the club having never climbed before! We will quite literally teach you the ropes

Not at all, that’d be madness! We have so many training sessions so we can get as many people as possible involved.

Not for climbing! We have everything for you to borrow at training. 

For hiking, you will need a pair of hiking boots with ankle protection (preferably waterproof, for your own comfort) and a decent set of waterproofs to combat the lovely Irish rain!
