Get Ireland Walking's new App!

Get Ireland Walking is launching its first App as part of the “Keep Well” campaign to support people in a changing landscape and make walking supports and events more accessible digitally. We've teamed up with our partners, Sport Ireland, Healthy Ireland and Mental Health Ireland.

App on phones

How it works:

21 Day Walking Challenge

Our 21 Day Walking Challenge is now digital! Why not download the app now and walk into 2021! We're challenging you to walk at least once a day for 21 days in a row and we promise you that if you complete the challenge, you'll have a walking habit to be proud of by 2021. The app allows you to record how you are feeling, your mood and energy levels through the challenge. If you are feeling low starting your walk or indeed at any point during it you can reach out for support or learn more about boosting your mood. You can find support on Mental Health Ireland's Walks to Wellbeing.
