2.5hrs hike, 2 down, must covered our view at the summit, but we were given an air show by the coastguard and mountain rescue. We had all sorts of weather but fantastic scenery proved to make it all worthwhile.

Hard walk but worth it. Took us 4.5 hours. Parking is a little limited at the foot of the mountain on busy days. Great idea to rent a stick for walking. The views are breathtaking. A rocky steep walk until the last part where it is a climb on loose rocks.

We trek up the pathway until the Statue of Saint Patrick without any difficulty. Beyond that the pathway is a little tricky. We stay for a while to admire the view of the Clew Bay and the surrounding countryside are simply awesome.

Ok so this is was difficult climb! I am not fit so I expected it. The first half of the climb was definitely the easiest part even though when we were doing it we thought it was torture :) the second half is much steeper with a lot of loose rocks- good footwear is essential. It took us 4.5 to... More

As a young fella, I grew up in Murrisk with the mountain as my play ground. Now coming back with my own family, it is a great place and climb when the day is fine. The views are some of the best any where in world. Great place.

I went to visit Croagh Patrick August 2015. Four women cycled to CP and ventured up the hill, it looked very daunting at first. But as we started and headed up our excitement grew just the thought of reaching the top spurred us on. I took nearly 2 hours to reach the top. But the climb was well worth it.... More

As a family of five we all climbed to the top of Croagh patrick. It's tough but worth it. It's tricky in places. It's essential that you bring drinks and wear comfortable footwear like hiking boots or good runners. We all had a stick which you can rent at the foot of the mountain which is the secret of getting... More

Six of us climbed Croagh Patrick taking over four hours. Its a difficult walk but well worth it. The views from the top were amazing! We were all so exhilarated afterwards! I would advise to buy walking sticks before the trek as its very steep

I visited Croagh Patrick with my 9 year old daughter, she loved it ! The cafe is great, plenty of snacks and drinks and the gift shop has some lovely souvenirs. The walk is beautiful and the views are out of this world. It's something everyone should experience at some stage in life.

We arrived on a day where the weather was perfect. Since we arrived around noon, there was zero parking to be found. No matter, there was ample parking across the street in the bus lanes. The hike up the croagh was rocky, steep and treacherous at times. We should have purchased walking sticks from the gift shop at the bottom... More
