This 3-day mountain challenge takes in Slieve Donard, Mount Errigal in Donegal, Croagh Patrick in Co. Mayo and finally Lugnaquilla in the Wicklow Mountains.
The challenge begins at 6am on Friday as we meet in Newcastle, Co. Down and ascend our first mountain - Slieve Donard (850m).
After a quick brunch we are on our way to Donegal where we will ascend Mount Errigal (751m) in the evening. Our traditional pizza stop will not disappoint in Letterkenny.
We drive through the night to Westport where we then climb Croagh Patrick (764m) to see the sunrise.
After a quick breakfast we head east to the Wicklow Mountains for our final and highest mountain - Lugnaquilla (925m).
We then check into our 5 star hostel for a well earned shower and then celebratory dinner in a local restaurant.
Sunday is a relaxing day of breakfast and the drive north to finish in Newcastle where it all began.
