Letterkenny

Trip Planner Europe  /  Ireland  /  County Donegal  /  Letterkenny
(4.4/5 based on 1,600+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, fun & games, zoos & aquariums
As an economic center of the region, Letterkenny has suffered overdevelopment, but its thriving student and young-professional population brings good food, accommodations, and nightlife. While the town is mostly frequented by tourists using the country's public transit system, it offers a cathedral, a county museum, park, and market square. If you're here after sundown, check out Letterkenny's vibrant nightlife, which thrives thanks to local universities. With our online itinerary creator, Ireland vacations can be built around trips to Letterkenny and other destinations in Ireland.

Where to stay

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.
