Malin Head

Explore Malin Head, Ireland's most northerly point! The area is known for its scenic beauty but did you know it's also an area of historical, scientific and ecological importance?

Malin Head is renowned for its dramatic landscape and beautiful beaches. See some of the largest sand dunes in Europe when you approach Malin Head from the coastal road, along the north of Trawbreaga Bay at Lagg. Enjoy a walk, go fishing, swim in the shimmering water, take some incredible photos or study the unique rock formations.

A circuit of Malin Head brings you around the coast to Banba’s Crown where a derelict building known as The Tower, was once used as a signal station connecting America and Europe. From Banba's Crown, view Inishtrahull Island and its majestic lighthouse to the north east. Further east on a clear day, see if you can spot the Scottish Hills.

Hike along the cliffs to Hell’s Hole, a remarkable subterranean cavern into which the tide rushes with great force and nearby, find Devil’s Bridge, a picturesque natural arch
