Please read the terms and conditions below carefully before booking an activity.

Booking forms: Each participant should complete a booking form, or if under the age of 18, a form should be completed by parent or guardian on their behalf.  Booking forms can be downloaded from this site or can be sent out on receipt of an enquiry.  Please inform the leader of any medical history or allergies that might affect your ability to take part in the hike. This information is treated in strict confidence but may be disclosed to medical professionals in the event of an emergency.  The information you provide will be used for booking and administrative purposes but not shared or used for any other purpose unless you agree otherwise, or to comply with the law.

Deposits: A deposit of €100 per person is required for all weekend or longer trips if booked more than 6 weeks before commencement. Full payment is required if booked within 6 weeks of the trip date. Deposits are non refundable and should be sent with the booking form to secure the booking.

Dogs: Are not permitted on any of our hikes.

Insurance: For longer trips we advise that you get suitable travel insurance.

Safety: The leader will take every step to ensure the safety and welfare of the group and third parties but participants should be aware that adventurous walks and hikes carry a risk of injury or even death. The leader carries as a minimum a Mountain Leader (S) Award from the MLTB (governing body for mountain sports in the UK and Ireland) and operates under a set of standard operating procedures. Participants agree to follow the instructions of the leader and to comply with any health and safety requirements as directed by the leader. The leader may alter the agreed itinerary if necessary to ensure the safety and welfare of the group.  The leader may choose to exclude any participant from the activity who does not comply with health and safety instructions or on health grounds. Participants must not take part in guided walks and hikes under the influence of alcohol or drugs and anyone believed to be so will be excluded.

Some of the mountain walks are strenuous and require a minimum level of fitness. If you are in any doubt about your health or ability to take part please consult your doctor.

Cancellation: In the event of a hike or training course being cancelled by Mountain Trails, a full refund will be given, please note that a minimum of 4 persons booking is required for a course or hike to go ahead.  Should the itinerary change on the day or be curtailed on safety or welfare grounds, no refund will be given.

The deposit on a weekend trip is not refundable in the event of cancellation by the participants. For cancellations on day hikes and courses a €10 fee for admin will be deducted from the refunded amount, if the client books an alternate date when cancelling then no admin fee will be deducted.

There will be no refunds for no shows on the day.

We will occasionally use photographs taken on our trips in promotional material and on online media. If you do not want your picture to be used in this way please let us know and we will gladly oblige.
