This gem is well worth the drive. In a remote setting of rugged Donegal, the landscapes are utterly beautiful.

We came all the way from Cork which is in the very south of Ireland to visit this place as it is the most northly point of Ireland. We arrived here late in the evening and we were blessed with the weather. It was amazing the beauty of this place. The walks along the cliff's are amazing. This is a... More

I have lived in Ireland all my life and less than 70 miles from Malin Head and never been there, now I have. I'm very pleased I made the effort the roads to the head are poor and winding but thats what you would expect I guess. The views are amazing especially on a good day like we got mind... More

It is definitely worth the drive, you will have great views along the road and Malin head itself offers great views. It is the Ireland most northerly point and it definitely feels like a special place, not a noise other than the waves crushing on rocks.

Beautiful walks with scenes to behold. The 'Wild Atlantic' stretching as far as the eye can see. Serene :)

The place is amazing and worth the drive. Take a walk down to Hell's Hole and spend some time taking in the amazing scenery. Took around an hour an half to 2 hours to get there from Letterkenny.

A lovely walk around the coastal point, with some great views out to sea. On a clear day you can see Scotland. Wildlife in abundance on land and sea. Found it very tranquil to watch the ebbs and flows of the waves crashing into the rocks and roll back out again. Car parking is very limited however, and portable toilets... More

In the far north of Ireland just before crossing into North Ireland lays Malin Head. The two hour trip out there is time we'll spent. No shops or restaurants to speak of, just nature at its spectacular best. Turn around and come back as the roads hold few options.

Well, who goes to Inishowen and does not go to Malin Head! Irelands most northerly point did not disappoint. Make sure you have decent footwear and a warm jacket, it was ridiculously blustery but the colour of the water as the ocean hits the cliffs was just jaw dropping. Make sure you have a look at the souvenir caravan stall... More

Malin Head is a spectacular place & the views on a clear day (or a great sunrise) are tremendous. We also heard the Northern Lights are occasionally visible from here but this is rare. We were also glad to discover there are going to be some improvements made to the parking & viewing areas by the local council which is... More
