Letterkenny, Co. Donegal

The county's principal town is an ideal place to explore north Donegal as well as having a wide range of amenities in the town itself. The Folk Museum, which illustrates the life of peasants in Ireland at different periods of Irish history, was the brainchild of the pioneering Father James McDyer. It is rich in history, and some of the monuments date back to pre-Christian times including portal dolmens and souterrains. There are also forty Bronze Age cairns.
