"Irelands most northernly point" County Donegal Things to Do Tip by sparkindy

County Donegal Things to Do: 48 reviews and 95 photos

The most beautiful of all Irish counties has to be Donegal. No where is more spectactular than the town land of Malin Head, Irelands most Northernly hamlet. There is not much to see of major interest except the signal tower and the letters EIRE written in stone to let fighter planes in World War 2 know that there were in neutral terrority. All other attractions centre around the pubs (there is three in this area) and peoples fireplaces so when you visit here its the characters that stand out.It is an amazing place to go for walks and enjoy the peaceful beaches (if the wind doesnt blow you away).
Def a destination for anyone who wants to get away from it all but still enjoy the craic at night.

Address: Malin Head, Inishowen, Co.Donegal, Ireland
Directions: malin Head is Irelands most northernly point. From Derry City follow signs for Carndonagh in Inishowen then Malin Village. Malin Head is approx 7 miles outside Malin and the drive is spectatular past Lagg beach (home to Europes highest sand dunes).
