Malin Head is the most northerly point on the island of Ireland and has some of the most spectacular scenery.
At the tip, you have The Tower, where there stands a clifftop tower built by the British admiralty in 1805 as a signal tower during the Napoleonic wars, around the tower are concrete huts which were used by the Irish army as lookout posts during WW2 with the tower being used as a signal station.
below the tower looking north, you will see the restored ‘Éire’, with the lookout post number ’80’. The sign was an important navigational marker for pilots in WW2 to alert aircraft that they were flying over neutral Ireland.
From the tower, there is also a fantastic 700m cliff top walk to Hell’s Hole (Pólifreann) a 30m deep chasm through which the sea roars
Malin Head is one of the best places in Ireland in which to see the spectacular Northern Lights due to its lack of light pollution and it’s a clear view to the north.
There are several BB’s to stay in Malin Head and one Hostel, there is also the most northerly bar (Farren’s Bar) and restaurant (Seaview Tavern) in Ireland.
Another attraction of the area is The Wee House of Malin and Malin Well which can be found on the shorefront just south of the Seaview Tavern down a very steep road (there is a sign on the main road showing the way).
The Curiosity Shop is the most northerly shop in Ireland is the quaint little bric-a-brac shop and is worth a look around.
Locations throughout Malin Head were used in the Star Wars film The Last Jedi and there is a festival which takes place throughout the region celebrating the film around the date of May 4th (be with you).
