very steep, but doable! we had a long hike and go up into the clouds. well worth it though. there was a lot of loose shale near the top so wear good shoes and be careful. give yourself plenty of time

no shade
off trail

This trail is not for the underdressed in bad weather. We managed to lose the trail once but made it back, I would recommend but I don’t think I’d do it on a rainy day again..

I originally designed this walk and cannot reconnect with it to update and fill in more details; it was originally on Everytrail. Any suggestions please

Did the trail with three kids (7-13) while on vacation, so not ideal gear. Took us about 2.5 to get up and 2 to come down but the kids felt a great sense of accomplishment. Ankle high boots would have been great, but it’s definitely better with shoes that have a firmer sole. My trail runners were fine but the softer road shoes were not ideal.

Steep and slippery but only a few parts. The view is worth it.

This hike is difficult. Wear ankle high hiking boots and bring walking sticks. Trail is almost all rock/gravel and STEEP. The views and difficulty make it well worth the experience. Just be prepared and bring a sandwich to enjoy once you reach the top.

A lovely hike. Great views on a clear day. Be sure that you're able to navigate and go prepared. Hiked it recently and when the fog came down it was very difficult to find the route back.

I have done Croagh Patrick a few times. It is an old pilgrim route and popular with all kinds of walkers. because of it's history and pilgrim Sunday I feel many people underestimate Croagh Patrick. People wear unsuitable clothing, footwear and do not go prepared for the weather which can change very quickly. As recent as last week in the midst of the hottest summer in 42 years the top was covered in cloud, it was cold and windy. 2 mile from car park to top, 2 hours up, 1.5 hours down. Easy to twist an ankle. Easy to suffer hypothermia. But a great walk if prepared properly.

My very first hike, it was difficult but so rewarding. The views are spectacular all the way up and there are no words to describe the views of the fjord from the top. A must for everyone

Love this climb...a real challenge for me.

hidden gem for experienced hikers. we did a loop instead of turning back the same way. went to the top as shown in the map and them continued and descended towards Delphi resort. parts of the path are not signaled and trek is not obvious. stunning views from the top!

Amazing experience with amazing views.

Spectacular views and hike; a truly vertical hike. I would rate this hike as difficult and not moderate

A beautiful walk along side the river robe. It is an easy trail with a very good surface. Safe and away from traffic and noise. Lovely on a nice day

Amazing hike... The views were outstanding. Being able to enjoy the vertical hike as well as views made for a spectacular day! Differently recommend!!!

I'm giving this five stars even though it was rainy and dreary and cold and you couldn't see anything when you got to the top...so that's saying a lot. If I can give it 5 stars under those conditions, imagine how great it would be if it was a clear day. This trail is not very easy as it is pretty much a vertical climb but when you get to the top, the sense of accomplishment is worth it. Next time I'll try and see the church, which I heard is beautiful.
