Hidden away and quite a distance to reach however offers stunning views from the walk along the cliff. Toilets available and limited car parking space. Little or no details of the history of this area just a few tourist board information point detailing the area. Plenty of families and kids enjoying the short walk. Wrap up warm as the wind... More

Great location to walk along the coast, visit rock pools, see the amazing Hells Hole (which has amazing turquoise water). From the tower (which has spaces to park), you can see Inishtrahull Island with the lighthouse. When you walk further down the path, which now has a proper walkway, you have great views all along the coast of Malin Head.... More

My friend and local of Donegal insisted that I cannot leave Ireland without seeing this place and she was quite right by it. Wild and raw in its beauty we drove through magnificent green fields and charming houses to the northern most point of the country. There you could see the ocean and the land and the beauty that is... More

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
