Malin Head Tours
was established in 2014 by two local people who recognised a need for guided tours of the area. In 2015 they employed a tour guide with the view to developing the company to offer more tour options. They facilitate both half day and full day tours. Starting in August 2015 a new full day tour will start with collection points all over Inishowen taking in four sites, Dunree Military Museum, Glenevin Waterfall, Doagh Famine Village and Malin Head.
