Update from the Croagh Patrick Heritage Trail Walking Festival organisers –

In light of the recent developments with the Coronavirus we have decided to cancel our Walking Festival which was scheduled-to take place on March 13, 14 & 15th 2020. As festival organizers, we have a duty of care to all our visitors, guides and our local communities.

The Croagh Patrick Heritage Trail Walking Festival will now be rescheduled for September 2020.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.


Get your walking boots on and come join us on an 3-day adventure through wild and mysterious rural County Mayo. This trail is set in a truly inspiring landscape, hosting a wealth of heritage that would appeal to any walker. Walkers can discover boreens and ancient pathways as the trail makes its way through a number of picturesque villages towards its destination on the shores of Clew Bay.

Event: 63km walk over 3 days from Balla to Murrisk, Co. Mayo

Dates: September 2020 (TBC)

Entry: €20 per day / €50 for 3 days

This event, organised by Croagh Patrick Heritage Trail, is celebrating its 11th anniversary this year and this is the 4th year it has been in association with Croí!

As this is generally a moderate walk, a reasonable level of fitness is required. Proper walking boots and waterproof rain-gear is essential. Day two would be regarded as being the most difficult. Refreshments are provided at the start, middle and finish of each day.
