The Wee House of Malin
The Wee House of Malin can be found on the shorefront in Malin Head, down a very steep hill, it is, in fact, a little cave, which legend has it was inhabited by a holy man, it is suggested St. Muirdhealach was the holy man
There are rough stone seats all around the interior and legend also claims it accommodates all who go into it.
Beside the cave are the ruins of an ancient church dedicated to St. Muirdelagh. This church is possibly eight hundred years old.
Malin Holy Well is located in the natural cavern in the rock on the shore directly below the church. The well was blessed by St. Muirdhealach and is said to have healing properties.
On the 15th August (Feast of the Assumption) there is a pilgrimage here, where pilgrims from all over Donegal and neighbouring counties would take part. The pilgrimage was known as the Malin Well Fair.
