Hillwalking

Hillwalking is an important extra-curricular activity in the school which has only really established itself and become part of the life of the students in the last few years, thanks to the enthusiasm of interested members of staff.

Participation in this most worth-while of pastimes has grown steadily and there are regular Sunday excursions for those interested. Furthermore, overnight weekend treks are also organised as well as longer trips during the school holidays, to sites around Ireland and to the UK and abroad. Recent trips have included Donegal, Scotland and a group of students have completed the 'Four Peaks' challenge.

Upcoming Trips

The King's Hospital Hiking and Hill Walking Club organised two very successful trips out west this term to Conemara and Donegal in the 2016 Winter Term.
