Castles · Zoos · Mountains
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. To arrange what you want to do in Letterkenny, use our Ireland trip planning app.
