Croagh Patrick View sits at the base of Croagh Patrick, County Mayo and gives open views of Clew Bay.

The viewpoint is adjacent to Murrisk Cemetery and the ruins of Murrisk Abbey, which was founded in 1456 by the Augustinian Friars.

Visitors can set out for a walk around the Bay or up to Croagh Patrick, Ireland's holy mountain. It's here that St. Patrick fasted and prayed for 40 days and nights, and the mountain continues to draw pilgrims to climb its 764m.
