Trip Planner: Europe / Ireland / Western Ireland / Province of Connacht / County Mayo / Croagh Patrick
Hike along the sacred paths of Croagh Patrick, the site of pagan and Christian pilgrimages. Nicknamed "the Reek" by locals, the mountain breaks up the flat landscape by rising 764 m (2,507 ft) into the air. Once a pagan destination, it is now named for Saint Patrick. Once a year, thousands of pilgrims climb the mountain on their journey. For centuries a chapel has stood at the summit where the faithful go to pray. Wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring a backpack with sunscreen, water, and snacks. Alternatively, view the mountain from a distance and take some photos. Using our online itinerary creator, Murrisk attractions like Croagh Patrick can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
