The best entertainment in town

At The Central Bar we pride ourselves in being one of the best bars in Letterkenny to watch live sport and entertainment.

The Central Bar has an excellent sporting tradition, with all matches shown live on our newly fitted 4K screens. At night, why not relax by the open fire and enjoy the very best of what Donegal’s musicians have to offer.

We show all types of sport throughout the week and if you are looking for something in particular don’t hesitate to ask, we will do our best to get it for you.
