Letterkenny is the county’s principal town providing the necessary commercial, retail, social and economic facilities.

There is a large 8 screen cinema complex in the town plus the popular An Grianan Theatre. Behind the latter is the Letterkenny Regional Cultural Centre. The Letterkenny Shopping Centre is the largest centre in the county with leading multiple and individual retailers.
