The different gardens
While Muslims visiting Letterkenny Town Park will not be able to find prayer facilities within its premises, they will find a secluded place within the park to offer their prayers. The city of Letterkenny is also known to house a mosque and a separate facility for Friday prayers. Muslim tourists can therefore ask locals to direct them to either one, when needed.
It is not known if Letterkenny Town Park houses any food kiosks. Visitors to the park will however be able to find several restaurants and cafés in the city of Letterkenny. While most of these restaurants will not be Halal certified, Muslim tourists will also be able to find a few Halal restaurants in the city, due to its small Muslim community.
