Review of Malin Head

Wanted to go to Malin Head as it is the most northerly point in Ireland but once there, apart from a snack bar, there is nothing there. Great views but to be honest there are great views all the way up there. Have been and don't regret going but don't think I will go again. The snack bar has tea, coffee and chocolate bars.

Malin Head is most northerly point in Ireland and you are surrounded by spectacular sea, cliff and mountain views. On a good day one can see Scotland, Tory Island and the backdrop of Mount Errigal and Muckish mountain in the north and west of Donegal. On a stormy day enjoy the wildness as the sea smashes into the cliffs and feel the wind and rain in your hair and let your spirit go! Exquisite and spiritual place.

It was good to go to the most northerly point but I was disappointed that there wasn't any facilities there. It would have been nice to be able to sit and have refreshments whilst enjoying the view. Its a long way from a town when you need the bathroom!
Having said that, if they did provide refreshments and toilets then I hope they build something that blends in naturally with the environment. It would be a shame to see a new building put in the middle spoiling the area. Log cabin maybe or a traditional Irish house that looks in keeping.

Go the most northern point of Ireland and you won't be disappointed by the view. There is a great thatch cottage on the way you will want to stop and photograph. The drive up is on a very narrow road which will give you a true taste of rural Ireland. Highly recommend taking time for this stop.

We drove to Malin Head because we had been to Mizen Head the week before and wanted to say we had seen the most southerly and most northerly points of Ireland while we were on holidays from Australia. The views are magnificent. It was a lovely sunny day with temps around 28 degrees when we were there but I imagine you would normally need to make sure you had your all weather gear with you. There is a coffee van with snacks available at the old communications tower but beware there are NO toilets and its quite a drive to the next 'pitstop''. It would be good to have some more information available on-site (interpretive signage etc) without spoiling the look of the place. I would have liked to have seen one of those signs saying how many miles/kms to different landmarks around the world (but thats just me). Thoroughly enjoyed the drive and the views.
