Excellent hike

Great day out. Takes approx 2 hours up and 1.5 hours down. Gets very steep toward the top so be careful coming down. Highly recommend

Amazing pilgrimage for Catholics and non Catholics - the hill is about three quarter the height of Snowdon in Wales so not easy, you need sturdy boots, waterproof clothing and (if possible) a stick, they sell them in the café at the bottom !

One of the best places in the world on a fine summers day! Be in no rush bring the back pack with the flask and sandwhiches.

It is a hard old slog up to the top - but worth it. Whether you are doing it as a pilgrimage, a challenge or you just want the view be prepared to get your heart pounding. It took me 2 hours to get to the top and I would consider myself moderately fit. You need to ensure you are... More

Not as easy as it may look(!), but worth the effort to experience an ancient pilgrimage and encounter some of the most stunning views Ireland has to offer.

You can ascend in 2 hours and make it down in 1.5 hours. The landscape is bare, rocky but amazing. Also, you have this amazing view of the harbour and the country side. Dare to enjoy a dinner after the feat

One of the highlights of my trips to Ireland. The views of the islands down below were exceptional. I would liekd to climb it twice. It was a great hike for a novice like me

It is quite difficult to climb Croagh Patrick, the Irish Holy mountain, particularly the last steep part of the path. You must plan 2 or 3 hours of walking, but it is worth it, because on the top you can enjoy an astonishing view of the co Mayo coastline and also visit the little church. The best time of the...

After more than ten years of regular visits to Ireland, we decided to go for this "you haven't been in Ireland, if you haven't done this" thing. And we totally saw why it is an absolute must do. It really is a breathtaking challenge, in a sense that getting to the top can phisically take your breath away already in... More

Climbed Croagh Patrick in September 2016, incredibly proud of myself. It's a steep and steady climb until you get near the top at which point I was nearly on all fours. Amazing views from the top. Coming down was surprisingly difficult as the stones at the top are small and slippery, perhaps bring walking sticks. We did it in 4... More
