  • We arrived here with 3 kids and it cost us 35e, you could go around it in 30 mins. Don't get me wrong its nice and has a nice selection of animals but it is over priced, We could get into Belfast Zoo ...  more »
  • Visited this lovely place on a recent trip with my husband and 1 year old daughter as well as an 8 and 10 years old. The butterfly room was lovely, be prepared for the heat! Lots of butterflies to see...  more »
  • Lovely little cafe, better food than the hotels and eateries in the town real value for money and very attentive staff, a little gem. The garden centre is good too.  more »

  • Great day out. Lots of insects and animals to see, the kids loved it. A small indoor playpark was on site also. We spent about 1 hour there, but I would advise to allow for a little more time especially if you have children. Friendly staff. Good facilities.
  • Fantastic family day, all the beautiful butterflies when you arrive first, and all the animals including prairie dogs, meerkats, monkeys and owls with loads more. Big play area and picnic tables outside, or even call into the thyme cafe for tea afterwards. Favourite part when visiting is when you can hold the snakes and insects. Great experience
  • Well worth a visit with kids. Staff are great, and the onsite cafe serves very tasty food. Play area is also great for kids of all ages.
  • Great place for coffee and a dander. Fantastic walking through with the butterflies flying above.
  • Small but just perfect for the attention span of younger kids. Loved the kids indoor playground.

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.
