    The Most Beautiful Spot in Ireland
    This is an absolute Must See in Ireland. So completely worth the drive and hike. Park by the toilets and take the path off to the left, and head toward Hell's Hole. Take the path all the way to the end for the most spectacular view you may ever see in your life. Absolutely incredible.

    Beauty of indescribable magnitude in any weather
    Indescribable place. Pictures can't capture the magnitude and magnificence of this place. I hiked out to the viewpoint on a windy and rainy day but didn't care. It just added to the raw beauty of the area. Trail becomes a bit vague after Hell's Hole but stay on the rocky areas if it's wet. Take some time here.

    Beautiful
    Breathtaking beauty. The paths were well kept. The scenery was amazing. It was one of the most beautiful places we went in Ireland, but it was not crowded. We felt like we could take in the scenery and breathe the sea air and still find some quiet and peace in nature.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited the most northern point of Ireland and were not disappointed. A very windy and blustery day but the scenery here is exceptional and well worth a visit. Note though that parking is extremely limited.

This place is stunning and not tacky like lands end in England. It was quiet when we visited, the narrow roads and small car park are either a blessing or a curse! The views are fab and it is the start /end of the Wild Atlantic Way

Spectacular views. I’m 76 and the walking paths were very doable. Well worth the effort. We stayed in a cottage nearby with Malin Head in our view.

Managed just about to get parking as very popular spot with not much parking available. Great views, public toilets, tourist tat for sale and a coffee van.

A worthwhile short coastal walk from the carpark along the most northerly point on mainland Ireland brings you to where they filmed part of The Last Jedi. The views are spectacular and the carpark even has toilet facilities and a couple of vans cater to those in need of a warm drink. Make sure that you do the coastal drive along the narrow roads to the top for the stunning scenery.
