I climbed Croagh Patrick – Happy Hiker

Have you climbed Croagh Patrick? Celebrate with this design printed on a t-shirt or hoody by Amazon, or on a huge variety of products from clothing to clocks from Redbubble.

Top Tips for a happy hike with kids:

  • Take A LOT of snacks and treats. Like double what you think you need.
  • Go with friends – it really helped the children to be chatting all the way.
  • Be prepared to take all day. The average climb is 3 and a half hours. It took us more than 7! There is a half way point on the saddleback where you could possibly split up and leave behind a group that were too tired to make it to the top!
  • When you’ve finished, buy everyone one of my unique Mountain Merch t-shirt to prove that you climbed Ireland’s Holy Mountain – Croagh Patrick!
