About the location


Carndonagh 9.5 miles; Cloncha 11.7 miles; Londonderry 31.2 miles.

Situated in County Donegal near to the famous Malin Head, Ballygorman is the most northern village in Ireland, perfect for taking in the incredible scenery of the North Atlantic ocean. Home to just under 250 residents, it is a truly unique area with many opportunities for exploring this amazing headland. Found in the village are some pubs, one of which holds the title of the 'most northerly pub in Ireland', Farren's pub, as well as a convenience store and post office. At the very tip of the Malin Head headland is Banba's Crown, named after a mythical goddess of Ireland, built by the British Admirality in 1805, and it is visited by thousands of tourists every year. Another big attraction to this remote place comes from the fact that the blockbuster hit Star Wars: The Last Jedi filmed scenes in this very special place, with Luke Skywalker (actor Mark Hamill) even popping into Farren's pub.
