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.

Well worth a stop if you're passing. Great, old style decor which is rare these days. Warm welcome. Lots of room if you're a group!

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.

Stopped off here for a wee cup of tea on our way back from Malin Head. Great service and a nice bit of apple pie with cream. That's the diet it the window again!
