A steady climb to the top rewards you with beautiful views one being Clew Bay and Clare Island. Bring a flask to the top 😉

Croagh Patrick looks daunting when first seeing the mountain. However, the climb is a gradual climb that only gets really steep as you get closer to the top. My husband made it to the top; I, however, only made it to the first summit. We...More

Challenging hike, be sure to dress warm. We walked through sunshine, rain (saw a rainbow) hail and snow. Wear hiking boots and bring walking sticks!

A pleasantly tough climb but well worth it! Be sure to bring a walking stick and warm clothes. Good facilities around, I.e. Nice car parking area, coffee shop and toilet facilities.

This is a challenging climb for an inexperienced or unfit person. The upper part in particular is very slippy with loose stone. I would not attempt this in the wet, I would also not do it without a stout stick - that "extra leg" that...More

I liked the Convent B&B in Leenane, but there are several a little closer. I just really like Leenane as well as The Convent.
