A matchmaking festival with a difference, the first “Meet on the Reek” singles event is taking place on the 23 of September in County Mayo.
Bringing singles from all over Ireland together for one weekend, the festival will centre around climbing Croagh Patrick (aka The Reek) in Westport County Mayo.
Historically climbing the mountain is an annual Catholic pilgrimage, which attracts thousands of visitors each year. The tough climb (2510 ft (765 m)) offers breath taking views of Clew Bay from the summit.
After the singles climb the Croagh Patrick on Saturday, the King and Queen of Meet at the Reek will be crowned that night.

The weekend program also includes a champagne registration reception, orienteering; canoeing, raft building.
Orla O’Malley, the event organizer says the weekend promises to be great experience.
“If you are tired of the impersonal world of on-line dating, bar hopping or speed dating, come and join us in Westport for a weekend full of guaranteed fun” she said,
“Climbing Croagh Patrick, our anchor event, is a wonderful experience. Add in a mini treasure hunt coupled with additional integrative activities and you are certain to have a fantastic weekend and maybe meet your perfect playmate!”
