While Muslims visiting Ardnamona Woods will not be able to find prayer facilities, they will be able to locate a clean and quiet area within the woodland to offer their prayers. There are also no known mosques in Donegal Town, so if unable to locate a secluded place outdoors, Muslim tourists will have to return to their accommodation at prayer times.
Visitors to Ardnamona Woods will not find any food outlets. They will however be able to visit one of the several restaurants and cafés in Donegal Town. Muslim visitors can either dine on suitable seafood and vegetarian dishes at a non-Halal restaurant, or they can visit one of the few Halal restaurants in town.
