Walk along Ireland’s own “Camino” pilgrimage route

GLENDALOUGH,IRELAND

“Pilgrim Paths” offer guided walks retracing the steps of penitents of the past.

Local guides will lead the walks “with time allowed for personal contemplation, to outline the story of the route and explain how medieval penitents coped with their arduous journeys,” according to Pilgrim Paths.

Here are the five main pilgrim routes along Ireland’s Camino featured on the guided walk:

Tochar Phadraig, County Mayo (Moderate/Difficult; 30km; 10+ hours): This path follows the route of the ancient royal road from Cruachán, the seat of the Kings of Connaught, to Croagh Patrick.

St.  Kevin’s Way (Moderate, 30 km; 7 hours): This path is said to follow the route of St. Kevin who founded a monastic site in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains. It ends at Glendalough, a monastic site and pilgrimage center during the medieval period, which was a renowned center of learning.
