Malin Head is an iconic location that is rich in history, culture, flora, fauna and marine heritage. As such, it goes way beyond the planet Ahch-to, as shown in The Last Jedi (Disney 2017). However, Malin Head more than a Star Wars movie location, this is an iconic location the transcends, space, time and even the Millennium Falcon. This walking tour will transform your understanding of Malin Head, it’s cultural and natural heritage, plus its importance as a Star Wars film location in Ireland.

What Our Visitors Say


“WOW we so totally loved the Star Wars tour with Bren. He is such a cool, kind and knowledgeable guy! The tour was so diverse, with a bit of history, legends, and star wars anecdotes which made it so special. We drove this far up North specifically to do this tour, and it was an absolute highlight of our trip. The scenery is truly breathtaking, and Bren adds so much flavour and meaning into wandering around. I can only recommend that you do this tour if you have the chance. ”
