The prehistoric artifacts on display
The Donegal County Museum does not have prayer facilities for Muslim visitors. Muslims visiting the attraction will therefore either have to find a secluded area outdoors to offer their prayers, or they can visit the one known mosque in Letterkenny. Muslim tourists can ask staff at the museum to guide them to this mosque when needed.
The Donegal County Museum is not known to house a café. Visitors to the museum will however be able to find plenty of restaurants and cafés in the city of Letterkenny. Muslim tourists will have to dine on seafood and vegetarian dishes at a non-Halal restaurant, or they could visit one of the few Halal restaurants in Letterkenny.
