Amazing - Ireland most Northerly point

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

You get a feeling of being on top of the world, well at least atop of Ireland. Great views.The luck of the Irish was with us, it was a lovely sunny day.

My wife and I had been to Mizen Head, Co Cork the week before and were now calling at Malin Head, Co Donegal with two friends who hadn't been there either. I was driving. Lovely drive up from Buncrana - would recommend that as well. Arrived at Malin Head. The big fort/building is disappointing as it is blocked up, so... More

It was worth the trek out to this -the most northerly part of Ireland. Lots of great views, lots of good walks and interesting information

The most northerly point in Ireland is really worth a visit. Rugged landscape combined with the historical details behind the Eire sign on the ground, the signalling tower and the lookout areas are fascinating. It really has had a place in history. It was surprising calm when I visited recently but it can be like a whirl wind so warm... More
