 Slí na Sláinte, meaning "Path to Health", is a simple innovative scheme developed by the Irish Heart Foundation to encourage people of all ages and abilities to walk for leisure and good health.

It uses attractive signage at kilometre intervals on established walking routes to help walkers identify the distance they walk. Slí na Sláinte is designed to encourage people to walk more frequently and to enjoy the benefits of a healthier lifestyle.

Over 170 Slí na Sláinte walking routes nationwide have been developed  in partnership with local communities, Sports Partnerships, the HSE, Walking Leaders, Tidy Towns Committees and workplaces. With more and more Slí na Sláinte routes being developed and installed all over the country, you will most likely find a Slí na Sláinte route near you.

The Irish Heart Foundation also provide Walking Leader Training courses  at  a nominal fee  to those who wish set up a walking group and promote waling within their community or workplace. Courses are held up to 6 times a year.  

If you would like further information on Slí na Sláinte or Walking Leader Training  please contact the Irish Heart Foundation at 01-6685001 or check out or website at
