In 2015, the Nephin Begers became the first hill-walking and climbing group in Co. Mayo. The begers started out as a group of friends who enjoyed hiking, walking, climbing, and most importantly the craic. Today, the group still enjoys all of these things and in equal quantities!


After some years, the begers grew in numbers, welcoming young and old, beginners and walking veterans to their ranks. Today, the group walks and climbs the local hills and mountains in the Mayo area, particularly in the Nephin region. Most Sundays, the group can be found climbing in the area, and are very welcoming to walkers joining their adventures. 

Over the past 7 years, they have had some wonderful climbs in Mayo, Ireland and beyond. Take a look at some images from their climbs below.
