Join us on Ireland's holy mountain Croagh Patrick. Take on Croagh Patrick and fundraise to support those in homelessness, or at risk. Whether you go solo or join as part of a group, you'll be answering a higher calling as we trek up Ireland's holiest mountain.

The Croagh Patrick mountain pilgrim path and hiking trail is a moderate to strenuous 3-4 hour route to the ever popular, spectacular and iconic peak. County Mayo's third highest mountain is known by some as Ireland’s Holy and Sacred mountain with up to 100,000 people climbing to the top overlooking Clew Bay.

This hike will be fully guided by the Focus Ireland team who will take you along the clearly defined path up Croagh Patrick.

The trail from the car park is signposted. At times, it will be steep, and at around 900m, the trail levels out for a short distance to help stretch the legs! The cairn will mark the start of the ‘cone’, the final steep section to reach the summit.

This challenge is open to people aged 16+. Please note that participants aged 16-18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
