Croagh Patrick, County Mayo

(4.7/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Croagh Patrick at the forefront of your travel plans using our Murrisk vacation trip planner.
