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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Letterkenny: Donegal Castle (in Donegal Town), Slieve League (in Carrick) and Glencolmcille Folk Village (in Glencolmcille). Spend the 1st (Mon) exploring nature at Glenveagh National Park. And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of Doagh Famine village, take in the dramatic scenery at Glenevin Waterfall, and take some stellar pictures from Malin Head.
