Drim Cottage - Malin Head


Sea ViewsFree Wi-FiPets AllowedOpen FireCot & Highchair

Drim Cottage is a spacious, airy five bedroom cottage, situated on an elevation with panoramic views of Tory Island, Fanad Head (Lighthouse) and Whitestrand Bay.  It’s a tranquil dwelling at the northernmost tip of the Wild Atlantic Way coastal route in Malin Head; an area now associated with  Star Wars Episode VIII, following the shooting of scenes in 2016. 

This five bedroom cottage (four double rooms and one twin room), with three bedrooms upstairs, two of which are ensuite, and two bedrooms downstairs, can sleep 11 guests.

Fully equipped and featuring free Wifi

A spacious living room with an open fire and flat screen TV and a well equipped kitchen and laundry room create a cosy, homely environment. Bed linen and towels (for indoor use only) are supplied at no extra cost, as is WIFI. For families with children, we provide a travel cot, highchair, stair gate, and fold up bed. Oil fired central heating and electricity incur an extra cost and there is also a stove in the kitchen.

Activities and Attractions

There is a variety of activities and attractions on offer in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Swimming in the Atlantic Ocean, diving, kayaking, surfing, sailing and fishing are just a five minute drive away.  Basking sharks, dolphins and seals may be seen at Portmore pier and Easky bay. 

The surrounding area is a haven for cyclists, walkers and birdwatchers alike and is one of the few remaining areas in Ireland where you will still hear the corncrake bird calling during the short midsummer nights.

Malin Head - Ireland's Most Northerly Point

A five minute drive will also take you to the most northerly point of Ireland called Banba's Crown, named after an early pre-Christian pagan Queen. From this elevated point you have a magnificent view of the surrounding area. 

The Admiralty Tower at Banba's Crown was built in 1805 as a Llyods Signal Station and was used as a lookout point in the two World Wars.  From Banba's Crown you can see Tory & Inishtrahull Islands, Horn Head and Bloody Foreland. A medieval derelict church called the "Wee House of Malin" dating back to the 16th Century is well worth a visit.

Local Beaches

There are many beautiful beaches. The nearby Five Fingers Strand has the largest sand dunes in Europe and here, at low tide, the wreck of the Twilight ship is clearly visible. Horse riding, available locally near Malin village, takes place on this beautiful strand. Culdaff beach, which has blue flag status, and Kinnago Bay are also within easy access.

Northern Lights

In the last few years many visitors, who came especially to view the famed Northern Lights, have been enthralled at the spectacular red and green shimmering lights of the Aurora Borealis in the skies over Malin Head.

This vibrant local community is well served with a café, restaurant, bars, shop, post office and supermarket. In summertime, Portmore Pier is a hive of activity. Here, at the Fisherman's Co-Op you can purchase live crab, lobster and mussels.

Doagh Famine Village

A fifteen minute drive will take you to the Doagh famine village where you will get a sense of what people endured and how they survived during the Irish famine of the 1840s. A short distance further along this road you will return to the twenty first century when you enter the renowned Ballyliffen golf course. Glenevin Waterfall, Glendowen Craft shop  and Fort Dunree Military Musuem are nearby and well worth a visit.

Ferry Connecting the North Coast

On the eastern side of the peninsula, the Greencastle - Magilligan ferry provides easy access to the Northern Ireland coastal attractions.

What they say

Can I also take this opportunity to say how helpful and user friendly your website is - it is certainly a plus for Donegal. I became aware of it through a friend who has booked a house in Ballyliffin for a number of us attending a wedding in the area in the summer.
