Dublin: 22 °C Sunday 7 August, 2022

11 spectacular views you can only get on the way up Croagh Patrick

Reek Sunday is here.

IT’S REEK SUNDAY – which means the annual tradition of 25,000 or so Irish people will be climbing Croagh Patrick for their pilgrimage (and being advised not to do it barefoot).

But they all had some day for it:

1. And a clear day means that the views are just stunning

2. With blue skies as far as St Patrick can see

3. With the shale underfoot

4. The views over Clew Bay are worth the trek

5. As is the church up there set against a blue sky

6. On the way up you’re surrounded by scenery

7. Crumbling rock walls around every corner

8. This area of County Mayo has stunning views wherever you turn

9. Even with the early morning fog today, it’s still a sight

10. Anyone can sit back and enjoy the views

11. Just getting up there is the hard part – but it’s all worth it for this
