The Cottage

This is my favorite pub in Letterkenny. As soon as you walk in the door you will walk back 50 years into another era. The cottage is definitely not the biggest pub in letterkenny but what it lacks in size it make up for in Craic and Atmosphere. The cottage gets wedged on weekends and is probably considered a locals pub. If you get a chance whether it is for one quite pint whilst reading the paper or a night out, stop by this pub and you wont be disappointed.
