Malin Village is one of the friendliest places in Donegal and for an exceptional welcoming fun bar and tea room look no further than Lilys. Spent many a superb evening in there with lovely staff and customers. Can't wait for my next visit.

We went for a drink in the evening so cannot comment on the tea rooms. It was a traditional, friendly Irish pub with welcoming landlord. Locals also seemed friendly. Good choice of beer. TV showing sport.
