Guided tours to the Statue are available from the Centre during peak season with advance notice.
These tours also give information on Clew Bay, the National Famine Monument and Murrisk Abbey, all of which can be seen from the Statue.
The Information Centre is a half way stop on the archaeological trail from Westport to Louisburgh promoted by the Croagh Patrick Archaeology Committee and Westport Tourism.
This is important for anyone wishing to climb the mountain which rises to a height of 765 metres.
A short climb to the Staute of Saint Patrick is fine for most people and no specialist footwear is needed.
