A place that is famous to those that remember the radio shipping forecasts! It is also another great place for coast views over to Scotland (weather permitting). Parking space is very limited, so our advice is to arrive early and enjoy the scene ahead of...More

It is the most Northern point in Ireland The view over the dramatic coastline and crashing waves is a must see. There are several paths that you can follow, which some are quite steep. Well worth the visit

While visiting the Inishowen Peninsula recently, of course we had to visit Ireland's most northerly point. We were blessed with the weather, beautiful blue skies and wow what views, they really do take your breath away. There's a wee coffee cart at the top and...More

We were pretty pleased with the clear weather when we reached Malin Head. Fantastic sweeping views were on offer. Also clearly evident down on a flat level below the tower site was the restored Eire’ sign, with the lookout post number ‘80’ . The original...More

Well worth the scenic drive to Ireland’s northernmost point; which isn’t in Northern Ireland funnily enough. The sun was shining but we had the most bitter gale force winds blowing. This didn’t prevent me from taking some beautiful photos. Just hold tightly to that camera.

It was snowing but wow what views. A beautiful part of Ireland well worth the drive. The downside, all three portaloos were blocked. Come on tourist board your a joke Its 2018 not 1918.

Rugged, wild, stunningly beautiful at the most northerly point of Ireland. Some old bunkers at the crest of the new tarmac road. A small but newly created carpark 100metres below the top. There is a view point at the crest with great panorama. We got...More
