The people of Ireland have a particular sensitivity to holy places. Clonmacnoise, Faughart, Lough Derg, Glendalough – these and many other sites have long been associated with Christian pilgrimages. People have a sense that they have a special atmosphere; there is something holy about them.Often the journey is important; but sometimes just going to holy places helps believers reach new depths in themselves and get in touch with the divine. There are a large numbers of sites where pilgrimages have taken place. Some of these sites date back to pre-Christian times.
Croagh Patrick, Pilgrimage
A place of ancient history, Patrick’s sacred mountain, and a rich vein of archaeological heritage. Croagh Patrick is situated five miles from the picturesque town of Westport and the mountain’s conical shape soars majestically above the surrounding countryside. Magnificent views of Clew Bay and the surrounding south Mayo countryside are to be had from all stages of the ascent of the mountain. Follow the steps of Patrick and in doing so meet people from far and near. Teach na Miasa, The Croagh Patrick Visitor Centre, is situated in Murrisk on the Pilgrim’s path at the base of Croagh Patrick mountain and opposite the National Famine Monument. Make sure to call and visit.
