The drive to Malin head can be challenging as signage is not the best but we stuck to the R238 route. Parking is limited near the top but it is so worthwhile. It took us about 75 minutes from Letterkenny starting on the N13 and...More

The drive is well worth it; the views are beautiful. It was a warm, bright, very calm day. There is some work being done at the minute at the bottom of the road, doesn't hinder anything. Wear comfy shoes and stick to the path. Quite...More

The day we went up to Malin Head it was stormy but what a perfect day to see the view. The sea was stormy and very rough giving you an indication of how the sea must be respected. The road up to Malin Head was...More

Top of Ireland and as far north as you can go. The views are spectacular and when we arrived the wind was quite strong so the waves were crashing on the roach. This made it an amazing sight

Visited Mail Head on Saturday. Beautiful sunny day. Wind created a real spectacle of crashing waves. Took the path to Hell's Hole but decided to go further beyond the managed path. Can be dangerous if you're stupid but keep back from the edge as much...More

So, so glad we made the drive from Culdaff. The weather was clear, windy and crisp - perfect. The scenery and views are incomparable. A clear highlight of the trip. I imagine it’s not so spectacular in poor weather. So, try to pick a good...More

We walked here across the hills from Muckla (6 miles round trip) on a beautiful sunny day - well worth the short climb up the new road to the site, where, on most days you will find a welcome coffee kiosk

Well worth it. We went on an unseasonably cold September day, but it was still worth it for the views. We done the Hells Hole trail and than on the ground above the trail (care to be taken) and the views where stunning. You could...More

I saw Malin Head on a rainy September morning, but it was still impressive. Not as dramatic as other similar sites in Ireland, like Horn Head or Fair Head -- doesn't have the height they do -- but it's very scenic.

This is the most northerly point of Ireland and as you would expect involves a bit of a drive. We were visiting Derry and Malin Head was only about an hour drive from there, with many scenic roads in between. We were very fortunate with...More

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
