Don't miss out historic sites such as the Cathedral of St. Eunan and St. Columba (dating back to the 1890s) and is made from white sandstone. Donegal County Museum is located inside the old Letterkenny Workhouse and houses displays covering thousands of years of local history, folklore and archeology.
