Northern Headlands

JOURNEYS BEGIN

Expand your mind, body and soul in Donegal.

REGION: MALIN HEAD TO DONEGAL TOWN

Untouched and virtually unexplored, this ruggedly beautiful and remote region lies at the far north of the Wild Atlantic Way. It’s no wonder Donegal was named the ‘Coolest Place on the Planet for 2017’ by National Geographic Traveller.

Nature is spectacular and bracing here, from the sheer granite walls of some of Europe’s highest sea cliffs, at Sliabh Liag, to the Northern Lights dancing in clear winter skies, to the millions of seabirds gathering in great estuaries, en route across the globe. There’s a strong sense of community in this sparsely populated region; Ireland’s wildest shores are home to its largest Gaeltacht – where Irish is still the mother tongue and traditional culture thrives.

This is where St Columba set sail for the island of Iona. Out here on Ireland’s northernmost headlands, 11 lighthouses shine out across the sea, and journeys – physical and spiritual – begin. The sea air revives, minds and horizons expand, stories are told, adventures are shared, and spirits lift.

Boasting sandy shores, geological wonders, relaxing hideaways, historic treasures and thrilling pursuits, there's a region to satisfy every Atlantic appetite.
