Malin, Co. Donegal

Malin is a village in County Donegal, Republic of Ireland, that is situated 6km (4 miles) north of Carndonagh. A further 13km (8 miles) further north is Malin Head, a conspicuous landmark to sea-travellers on the North Atlantic and the most northerly point of Ireland. Though of no great height, the head has superb views of the neighbouring coast. Striking rock formations in this neighbourhood include Hell's Hole, a remarkable chasm into which the tide rushes with great force.

Malin Head is one of the few places in Europe where you may hear the ellusive Corncrake. It is also 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.

The Wee House of Malin is in fact a cave in the hillside of Malin Head and is said to be the home of St. Muirdealach. Legend has it that no matter how many people entered this cave it always had room for more. Beside are the remains of an old church which according to tradition was built by St Muirdealach. Built of split stone rubble and some boulders, only the NE and S walls now survive.
