As the biggest town in county Donegal, Letterkenny has something to appeal to everyone. Visually, it carries off an intriguing blend of the old and the new, with fine Georgian and Victorian buildings surviving alongside award-winning modern structures such as the grass- roofed county council offices. Meanwhile, the majestic landmark of Donegal's only cathedral, St Eunan's, built around 1900, boasts one of Ireland's highest steeples. Families are well catered for in Letterkenny, where the kids can go swimming in the Aura leisure centre, catch the latest movie in the Century multiplex, thrill to a drive at the Karting Centre, or join in a family game of tenpin bowling, or snooker, at the Arena 7 leisure complex. Younger children will have lots of fun at the Jungle King indoor soft-play centre. There's plenty to do out in the open air, too, from paintballing to golfing at the local 18-hole parkland course. Walkers may take to the beautiful open countryside or learn about Letterkenny on a guided historic tour. The nightlife here is lively and vibrant, offering everything from pubs and restaurants to music venues, clubs and theatre. And a wealth of sightseeing exists within a short drive of the town, notably the spectacular Glenveagh National Park.
