Club Details


The East Antrim Rambling Club was formed in 1979. The Club is managed by a Management Committee consisting of a Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary and Committee members. Membership of the club is open to anyone over 18 years of age. Annual membership subscription is £20 per person

The Club has Walk Programmes for Spring / Summer and Autumn / Winter and walks occur on most Sundays and Wednesdays. The Sunday Programme walks are longer and can be challenging (usually 7 to 10 miles) whilst the Wednesday Programme walks are shorter (usually around 4 miles). Walks can be anywhere in Northern Ireland although the majority would be in Antrim and Down and the Greater Belfast area.

The Club organises Annual Easter (usually a 4 night stay) and September (3 night stay) walking breaks for members. Occasionally the Club organises trips abroad also.  New members are always welcome to join the club.  Anyone interested in joining is encouraged to just turn up for a given walk that they are interested in and make themselves known to the Walk Leader. A warm welcome is assured. All the details and information that a potential new member needs is contained on the Club’s Website and details of the planned / recent activities are posted to the Club’s Facebook.

All walk details including meeting points, Walk Leader details, distance etc are posted on the Club’s Website Homepage under ‘current programmes’. Go along and join one of the walks, you won’t regret it. One thing the Club can’t guarantee is, of course, the weather on walks, however, what it can guarantee is great craic, companionship, improved health and well-being and the likelihood that you will explore places that you wouldn’t ordinarily have visited.
