Leaving for Ireland
Where to sleep?
Malin Head Travel guide
Malin Head : Michelin's recommendations
A tiny fishing village shelters from prevailing winds behind the massive promontory. On the cliffs, which are Ireland's northernmost point, stands a tower. Built in 1805 by the British Admiralty to control navigation, it was later used as a beacon. Two and a half km out in the sea rises the Island of Inishtrahull, once the site of a hermitage. The road around the cape offers spectacular views of Pollan Beach and Dunaff Cape.
