    Grand area and excellent facility. Lovely hosts. A bit out of the way, but that is just fine with me. Without a car, the weather is a big factor in travelling up there. But worth it. I would like to return.

    Perfect location that one can think of. Margaret and Rodney are one of the most supercool host that I've come across. Total self catering hostel. Having your own car is an advantage when you visit here. If you don't have they even provide you a bike on rent! You can enjoy a book while you sit in the living room with a perfect view. So yes this is one of the perfect place to stay in Malin head!
