Malin Head

Malin Head is located on the Inishowen Peninsula in Co Donegal and is the most northerly point on the island of Ireland. The northernmost tip is the headland named Banba's Crown located at latitude 55.38ºN. Malin Head gives its name to the Malin sea area. There is a weather station on the head, which is one of 22 such stations whose reports are broadcast as part of the BBC Shipping Forecast. Banba's Crown is about 16km north of the village of Malin. The island of Inishtrahull is further north, located approximately 10km north east of Malin Head. Further north still is the most northerly landfall of Ireland, Tor Beg Rock. Above Banba's Crown to the east lies Ballyhillion beach, a unique raised beach system of international scientific importance. Malin Head is an ideal vantage point from which to view the autumnal movements of seabirds such as gannets, shearwaters, skuas, auks and others, on their southward migration flights. Popular amongst tourists, most major amenities are found in nearby Malin village.
