While I did not do the climb, I did check out the facilities and a few people who have done it. There is no doubt that it is a steep ascension. Having or renting a walking stick is recommended as having the proper footwear and...More

5 miles up and 5 miles down -the down being the harder than the up. The trail is steep and treacherous in places. This is a pilgrimage that has been done for thousands of years and through many religious persuasions. Carry clothes for a cold...More

Fantastic views. Was previously described as a moderate climb. That is no longer true. Maybe due to the recent month of dry weather, but the path is nothing but loose rock now. The path is now eroded to treacherous sharp loose rock only (July 2018),...More

My girlfriend and I finally got around to climbing Croagh Patrick. It was a cloudy day after 2 weeks of great weather, but this was a good thing as I can't imagine climbing it in the heat (or bad weather). The climb is mostly loose...More

I have lived in Ireland for years and finally got to this during the lovely summer 2018 weather, as I heard it was rough in wetness & cold. We started early- before shop was open- and suffered from lack of adequate water on the hot...More

This is a favorite climb/pilgrimage for the Irish people. Average time to the top is 2 hours. That is 2500 feet and 4 miles. Views from the top are fantastic. On a clear day one can see Clare Island, Inishturk, and even Inishbofin as well...More

It was a beautiful day to trek up the mountain...... Sturdy shoes are a must, plus if you don't have a hiking stick, it is well worth the 3 euros to rent one from the ice cream vendor(you get 1 euro back upon your return).......More

Not going to lie, it's a tough climb even for a reasonably fit adult in decent weather, about 2 hours going up and hour and a half coming back down, a lot of it is very rocky and steep. If the weather is bad (and this is... More
