Rhododendron Walking Festival
In 2018 the Rhododendron Walking Festival was instigated by the inaugural Siul Eile walking community based around the Galty Vee Valley.
It has very quickly become a major event attracting over 1,000 walkers to the Galty Vee Valley on the June Bank Holiday Weekend, to witness the spectacular phenomenon of the rhododendrons in full bloom across the Valley merging with the renowned stunning scenic beauty of this remote area under the expert guidance and hospitality of the Rhododendron Walking Festival Committee.

Siul Eile walking programmes are a great way not only to get active, but mainly to meet your neighbours and discover parts of the community you rarely if ever visited before.
Walking is one of the simpliest activities, suitable for nearly everyone.
Meet Your Neighbours
Meeting people from your community is really important – and it is about more than just saying ‘Hi’.
There is history and natural beauty all around us in our communities that should not be overlooked.
