"Croagh Patrick, Co. Mayo: Ireland's holy mountain" Croagh Patrick Tip by sabsi

Croagh Patrick, Ireland: 8 reviews and 8 photos

  Ireland's holy mountain
by sabsi

Climb Ireland's holy mountain, a strange experience.

The path up to this 800 meter mountain is really steep and scary at some places. It only consists of rocks and when it get steep it looks really dangerous. Bring a stick, it's a good thing to have - especially one on the way down to avoid sliding down!!

Pilgrims climb it barefoot. They must be completely crazy!

There's a big travelogue on my Co. Mayo page about "The Reek" and its stones and pilgrims.

Address: In Murrisk, Co. Mayo
