Teileann is the only official name. The anglicized spelling Teelin has no official status.

Teileann (anglicized as Teelin)[1] is a Gaeltacht village in County Donegal, Ireland. It is near Slieve League, at the northwest end of Donegal Bay. Its population is about 250–300.

The village is noted for fishing, scuba diving, and traditional music. It has a fine deep harbour and boat launching facilities with safe mooring. It is an Irish-speaking community, and has been the subject of many linguistic studies.

Teelin was one of the first settlements to appear on maps of Ireland, as it was an important port.

The folklorist Seán Ó hEochaidh is from Teelin.
