Malin (Irish: Málainn) is a village in County Donegal, Ireland, situated 6 km (4 mi) north of Carndonagh. A further 13 km (8 mi) north further is Malin Head, the most northerly point of the island of Ireland. Malin won the Irish Tidy Towns Competition in 1970 and 1991. It was a planned settlement platted around a triangular green.

The Malin 5k run is held annually as well as a Raft-Race which takes place to raise funds for the RNLI.
