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.

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.

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

Amazing experience with amazing views.

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

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.
