Malin Head is the northernmost point of the island of Ireland and is located within County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. You won't want to miss its epic coastal landscapes and wildlife spotting.

Here you’ll be able to see and walk along some beautiful beaches, including the Five Finger Strand, backed by one of the largest sand dunes in Europe.

The whole area is full of history and steeped in folklore.

If you feel like you recognise Malin Head, it may be because it was featured in the popular Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie.

If you fancy exploring where the Devil lives, why not walk over the cliffs to Hell’s Hole, a subterranean cavern where the tide rushes into with great force? Or nearby you could discover the picturesque natural arch called the Devil’s Bridge.

Malin Head is an area where everyone will find something of interest, from the stunning landscapes to the outdoor activities, including hiking, fishing and golfing.
