Heart of Allihies 5 Mile Run

Heart of Allihies 5 Mile Run was a great success with about 120 runners of all ages running walking or crawling around the fairly tough five mile course. Although it was a fairly tough course the scenery is amazing and that more than makes up for the difficulty This will go on to being a yearly event. Thanks to all who came.

Rent a hall

As recently shown, with the success of the GAA fundraiser, the Allihies community hall is a great venue with the capability and the capacity to hold up to very large functions. We have local caterers on hand and a licensed bar. We are more than welcome to hear your requirements for your special occasion, so let us know if we can help you.
We are still always waiting to hear about any ideas you may have about courses or activities that you would like to start here at the hall. We had hundreds of suggestions from you before we undertook the renovations and we’d love to see many of them into fruition. Come on…….let’s get moving!!

If anybody would like to use the hall for a private function feel free to contact us for a quote.
