A Home from Home
Teach Micheál, is surrounded by a rugged coastal landscape and it enjoys sea-views allowing you and yours to enjoy tranquility and peace. Feel the breeze in your hair while overlooking the coastline, which treats you to a view of Scotland on a clear day; enjoy walking pastures en-route to the local shop, restaurant and traditional bars with shops; or stroll with sand and unique pebbles on your feet at the Five Stand beach. Stunning walks may lead you near high cliffs, caves, historic buildings and a geological feature from the ice age. Plus you are only a 5 minute driveway, from looking over at Inistrahull Island!
The wee house of Malin is only a short walk away from Teachín Micheál. So is the site of an ancient church, situated beside the sea. Dolphins even seem to enjoy Malin Head, as sightings of them have increased in recent years! Also increasingly visible at Malin Head are the Northern Lights. Of interest to the adventurous and extremely cautious on a calm day, is the water volcanic like “Hells hole” and the intimidating “Devils Bridge”.
So if you’re interested in meditating scenery, local culture or just a cheap pint, pulled by friendly local staff in nearby bars, Teachín Micheál, Malin Head, awaits! Our home is your home.
