"Croagh Patrick" Croagh Patrick Tip by AR76

Croagh Patrick, Castlebar: 2 reviews and 2 photos

  View of Croagh Patrick from Castlebar
by AR76

West of Castlebar lies Westport, and west of Westport lies the mighty mountain Croagh Patrick. It can be seen from afar.
On this mountain, St. Patrick is said to have ordered all snakes to leave the island (and to this date, there are no snakes in Ireland).
Every year many people make the pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick and climb the mountain barefoot or even on their knees...
Sadly, every year there are also reports of injuries - people falling of the mountain during the steep descent... So take care!
