Walking Tóchar Phádraic 2018 

Experience the living Mayo, because Mayo is always on the move !


April 2018

Tochar Phadraig is an old pilgrim road running from Bullintubber Abbey to Croagh Patrick. It is 35km long and winds through unspoiled countryside and pre-famine villages.

Walking on the Tochar Phadraig is a spiritual pilgrimage and a journey through Mayo’s heritage and history. Along the path everything, including stones, rocks, trees and streams, is permeated with pilgrims’ stories and gives walkers an unique experience.

The Tochar Phadraig is a mixture of roads and cross-country with a variety of terrains, and because much of the walk is over private land, pilgrims are asked to respect the property of landowners who generously allow people to access the walk. There are five official walks organised by the Abbey in May, June, July, August and December.

Support and transport is provided along the route, a ‘back up car’ and transport back to the Abbey is provided.

Here are the 2018 Tochar walks:

  • Easter Monday 2nd  April at 11.00am 
  • Saturday 26th May at 8.30am
  • Saturday 30th June at 8.30am
