Malin Head is considered the northernmost point in all of Ireland. Situated on the Inishowen Peninsula in County Donegal, the area offers a rather nice view of the ocean and the surrounding cliffs. A great place to walk around and picnic!
Malin Head has the peculiarity of being the northernmost site of the country, without being part of Northern Ireland! Belonging to the Republic of Ireland, Malin Head is appreciated for its incredible views of the coastline.
The site also has a weather observatory (which can provide rather sharp information on marine weather), as well as a Navtex transmission station.
Technically, you will have to reach Banba’s Crown 2km north-east of Malin Head to be the northernmost in Ireland. But it is indeed in the region of Malin Head that you will find this famous northern point. A symbolic location, but one that attracts many visitors every year, delighted to reach the northernmost point of Ireland!
