Quite steep but we have enjoyed all the climb up. Have a rain coat and very good shoes as there are small rocks on the way. Tiring but enjoyable. Have plenty of water/drinks and some chocolate to give you energy ;) Must be seen when in Ireland.

I climbed Croagh Patrick with friends this week for the second time. My first climb was almost exactly 2 years ago. The weather on that day was miserable. We completed it with a great sense of achievement that was overshadowed by being very wet and cold, and had to remain like this for the return journey to Galway. I insisted... More

This is a difficult climb. The path is steep and very rocky. You will need stout walking shoes or hiking boots. Bring lots of water and snacks because it takes awhile to complete. The reward for the climb are the absolutely stunning views.

It's a tough ascent. Take regular breaks and bring enough water/food for a 3 or 4 hour hike. Bring the right footwear also as you are walking on loose rocks for long periods. There are 4 sections on the route. The first part is a semi steep walk along a nice stream. Then you get to a more steep section... More

To climb Croagh Patrick and die... No kidding, this is also called Ireland's Holy Mountain, and truly is God's miracle. The top was covered with clouds, but on the way the views were astounding. Being in the clouds gives a heavenly feeling too... And we had a mass on top! (And bbq at the bottom) Very spiritual experience. Definitely bucket... More

Wow- amazing views- but very challenging as rocks are loose in areas and it is practically straight up. I am a runner - going up was a work out- coming down maneuvering rocks and sliding was work. But if you like hiking it's great- I prayed going up and had to refrain from cussing a few times- lol- as it... More

We nine had only one day on our journey to climb, and we weren't going to miss out on this part of our pilgrimage. Up early, on the mountain by 8am, we were alone in the misty weather, as fog obscured the summit. My rain gear failed early, tho other's had better luck and better gear. I winced as I... More

The cup says it all, "I nearly climbed Croagh Patrick". This is a great hike for all levels and the views are spectacular. Enjoy the mountain and the workout. Plenty to do and enjoy in town of Westport as well.

It is a life time experience to climb Croagh Patrick. The climb is hard and confortable gear and boots are recomended. Although you will be surprised to see people doing it bear feet. A local lady told us, that no feet have ever been sratched or bruised after climbing it and put it down to the miraculous action of the... More
