My wife and I drove the coastal road (R238/242) around the Inishowen Peninsula in early May. The area played a major role in early transatlantic communication. Malin Head is the northern-most point in Ireland. On a clear day, it has incredible vistas of Inishtrahull Sound....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.

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
