Going to the northern point of Ireland is totally worth it. Stunning views, an easy trail and breathtaking photographs. A gem in the wild Atlantic way indeed.

The most northerly point in Ireland - well you have to see it, haven't you! No charge for parking (if it was in Kerry!) and a nice cliff walk. Visit Mcrory's afterwards for grub.

Had a lovely drive up to Malin Head. We went for a few short walks in the surrounding area and had a picnic. The views were fantastic. Even saw some dolphins!

Malin Head is a remote and quiet corner of Ireland. There are very few amenities outside a few B&Bs and Lodges nestled in tiny villages. The windswept fields of Peat and meadows are incredibly photogenic. This is a small day trip that will fill your...More
