Croagh Patrick View is located on the south shore of Clew Bay at the base of Croagh Patrick. The viewpoint is immediately adjacent to Murrisk Cemetery and the ruins of Murrisk Abbey (founded in 1456 by the Augustinian Friars). Open views of Clew Bay against the backdrop of the Currane Peninsula. Established walks exist from the Discovery Point around the Bay and to Croagh Patrick, Ireland's holy mountain its here that St Patrick fasted and prayed for 40 days and nights and the mountain continues to draw pilgrims to climb its 764m.
We recommend planning to spend 30 minutes to 1 hour here.
