Malin Head

When you visit the breathtaking Malin Head on northernmost tip of Ireland, you’ll soon understand why the tourist trail here is called the Wild Atlantic Way. At the peak of the Inishowen Peninsula, Malin Head offers some of the most indomitable views you will ever see over the northern Atlantic and its geological marvels are second only to the Giant’s Causeway Coast.

There is evidence of human settlement in Malin Head dating back to the end of the last Ice Age. More recently – at least, historically speaking – the area held a military watchtower, used during the Napoleonic Wars. During World War Two, Malin Head was used as a detection point for German U-Boats in the Atlantic Ocean.

As well as a fascinating history and impressive views, the epic craggy coastline of Malin Head is the perfect habitat for an array of fascinating birdlife. Many species of sea bird pause here during their autumn migration. If you think you can brave the weather, this is the perfect time to pay a visit to Malin Head. Bring your binoculars and you might see anything from corncrakes to Atlantic puffins and choughs, as well as many other varieties of bird.

In recent years, Malin Head has also seen some spectacular displays of the Northern Lights, making winter a particularly good time to come. Keep your fingers crossed and you may be able to experience this awe-inspiring natural phenomenon for yourself – it really will take your breath away.
