Melmore Head, Rosguill Peninsula, County Donegal, Ireland

Don’t be fooled by its unpleasing nickname The MurderHole because this beach is a true Irish gem. There are no paths, road nor signs and it requires a long hike through a grassy plain full of cattle, then over some large sand dunes to even reach. This has to be one of the most stunningly beautiful beaches you could ever set eyes on! It may have the most uninviting name you’ve ever heard off, but always remember you should “never judge a book by its cover”

As for its nickname? I’ve asked countless people on why it has gained this name ‘The Murder Hole’ & have heard so many different tales ranging from ‘World War 2’ soldiers to The ‘Great Famine’ to even a Murder Mystery hundreds of years old! I honestly still have no idea so if you have any information? Please feel free to add it below as many folk would love to read about it ?

I revisited this stunning beach 6 weeks ago, before everything went crazy. Due to restriction signs set by the surrounding landowner, I walked across ‘Tra Na Rossan‘ then climbed over that giant rock hill to reach it. A challenging hike but the views were unforgettable. I miss these trips but understand, we’ll all be able to return to our favorite places soon. Until then we have our photographs to at least help our minds visit, even if only for a small moment ?
