The Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal is a stunning example of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, and one of the most beautiful places to visit in Ireland. Sculptured by the Atlantic’s waves and winds for millennia, it’s northernmost point, Malin Head, is the very definition of wild and is one of the best vantage points from which to view the Northern Lights in Ireland.
