Malin Head Holiday Homes Donegal
Malin Head is Ireland’s most northerly point. As you round the head on the Inishowen Peninsula, the road climbs to a viewpoint and continues on to a 19th century signal tower, which marks Banba’s Crown.
From here, Inistrahull Island is visible, and also Scotland on a clear day a haven for professional and amateur painters alike. Malin Head is a favourite spot for bird watchers, most importantly it is one of the few places in Europe where you may hear the illusive ‘Corncrake’.
You will find at Banba’s Crown, Ireland’s most northerly point, the Tower, which was built in 1805 as a Lloyds Signal Station. In its early days this was a major news link between America and Europe and was considered strategically very important to the Allies during the Second World War for the transmission of military information..
