Part of the Donegal stretch of the Wild Atlantic Way, the mighty landscape at Horn Head is well worth a visit. A visit to Horn Head near Dunfanaghy isn’t as straightforward as some of the other nearby attractions, so take 30 seconds to read the points below, first. You’ll find Horn Head a short spin from the town of Dunfanaghy. It’s a 20-minute drive from Falcarragh, a 35-minute drive from both Gweedore and Downings. For the photo above I recommend you to find "Lookout Point Horn Head" on Google maps. From there its a around 30 minutes walk along the cliffs. The actual spot is on 55.225882, -7.983035

The weather here can change very quickly and this is a very dangerous place to be when mist rolls in if you have no navigational experience. It’s for this reason that I don’t recommend the Horn Head Walk to novice hikers.
