Where to stay in Letterkenny

The favorite form of lodging in Letterkenny is the bed and breakfast, complete with hearty home-cooked meals. The very center of town can be quite noisy at night, so if this bothers you, consider staying a few minutes from the heart of Letterkenny. Most lodging options--which include guesthouses and hotels in addition to bed and breakfasts--lie within walking distance of the city center, so you won't be far from any sights. The real reason for stopping in this town is to see the rest of Donegal, so any basic accommodations will do as a jumping off point.
