Croagh Patrick, nicknamed the Reek, is an important site of pilgrimage in County Mayo in Ireland. The 2,500 foot mountain is climbed annually by pilgrims on Reek Sunday, which is the last Sunday in July. The Christian pilgrimage is associated with St. Patrick, who reputedly fasted on the summit for forty days in the fifth century.
The Cliffs of Moher are located at the southwestern edge of the Burren region in County Clare. The cliffs reach their maximum height of 702 feet just north of O’Brien’s Tower. The cliffs take their name from an old fort called Moher that once stood on Hag’s Head, the southernmost point of the cliffs. The present O’Brien’s Tower was built as a lookout tower during the Napoleonic wars.
Doolin is an Atlantic coastal village in County Clare. It is a noted center of traditional Irish music, which is played nightly in its pubs, making it a popular tourist destination. It also is the main setting for the PlayStation 3 game Folklore, in which the Netherworld, the world of the dead, is a realm that can only be accessed from this one place in the world.
The Doolough Pass in southwest County Mayo is the site of an annual Famine Walk that commemorates the 1849 deaths of destitute and starving people who had undertaken an extremely fatiguing journey, in very bad weather, to verify that they should continue to receive humanitarian relief during the Great Irish Famine.
