I saw Malin Head on a rainy September morning, but it was still impressive. Not as dramatic as other similar sites in Ireland, like Horn Head or Fair Head -- doesn't have the height they do -- but it's very scenic.

Stayed in Malin Head for one night in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights, but not to be as it rained constantly. Beautiful scenery in this part of the world, so a must stop off if in the area

Drove up from Buncrana, which was a cracking drive, to this amazing place. If you are anywhere near Inishowen you simply have to visit. Amazing walk from the car park (which is being extended) to the head (about 1 mile) is well worth it.

This is a wonderful site to see. The most northern part of Ireland. A beautiful piece of coastline with rocky out crops and grass surrounded by bog hills all leading to the ocean. You can go for a refreshing walk around the main headland to...More

If the weather is fine, a couple hours will allow you to enjoy a snack from the kiosk and to trek the road along the ridge. Parking was free along the small road leading up to the view point. Its tricky to reverse out... More
