New Membership

The Club subscription year starts on 1st November and ends on 31st October following year. You can join IMC at any stage of the year, however we don’t pro-rate the membership fee depending on the joining month. All new members joining after 1st September can benefit from membership for up to 14 months in their first year of membership.

By joining the Club you can avail the great benefits, as well as you can exclusive access to the Forum and IMC WhatsApp Group.

We use the GroupSpaces website to administer your personal and membership details together with your preferences and take subscriptions via PayPal. PayPal is the default method but we offer alternative methods (online bank transfer, cash or cheque) too, please consider the alternatives and get in touch with Membership Officer if any questions.

To join the Club, please complete the following steps:

  1. PAY YOUR SUBSCRIPTION FEE by selecting the appropriate subscription type here.  
    Follow the steps to complete the PayPal transaction. If you wish to pay by other means (online bank transfer, cash or cheque), please see the sidebar on the right. Subscription is non-refundable.
    The Membership Officer will process your membership usually within 3-7 working days upon receipt of payment.
  2. JOIN the IMC GroupSpaces site by completing the online form here.
    Please complete these details fully & accurately as the Membership Officer will need this information to create a Mountaineering Ireland (MI) profile on your behalf & pay your MI subscription.

The Membership Officer will only approve & process your IMC membership once both steps are fully completed, usually within 3-7 working days.

Once your IMC membership has been approved you will receive an email from the IMC website containing your username and link to set your password.  This will give you full access to the Members-Only pages of the website including the Forum.

The IMC/MI membership cards are processed in batches (on a weekly or bi-weekly basis) and once the card is issued, the Membership Officer will contact you accordingly.

If you are experiencing any issues or have any membership queries, your Membership Officer is here to help you, please get in touch at [email protected]
