New Individual Membership Rates – Effective from 26th July 2021

Welcome and Happy 50th Birthday to Mountaineering Ireland!  As part of our 50th anniversary celebrations we are offering a 50% reduction on all new individual membership fees for 2021. Celebrate the summer enjoyment of inter-county travel and Ireland’s hills, mountains and crags. This is the time to join Ireland’s National Governing Body for hiking, hillwalking and climbing.

We have restructured our Individual Membership fee rates, placing a special focus on supporting and encouraging families to join up. A family of two adults and three children, when registering for the first time as new members, paying via Direct Debit, will now pay a total of €31.87 for their first 12 months membership. This works out at an average fee of €6.37 per family member for a family of two adults and three children! Or a new Adult can register for as little as €15.75 for the first 12 months.

In celebration of Mountaineering Ireland’s 50th Anniversary, new Individual and Family members will receive a 50% reduction on our re-structured fees listed below, plus a 25% discount if they register to pay by Direct Debit. 

Regardless of setting up a Direct Debit or not, all new members will receive an additional 50% reduction to their fees, as listed in the below table (in the 4th column), in celebration of our 50th Anniversary Year 2021.

The restructured Individual Membership rates are:
