Ireland Campus

AISR Ireland Campus is located in CoLab, based on the Letterkenny campus at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology.

The CoLab building is equipped with the most modern technology available, with meeting and conference rooms offering state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and high spec. laboratories.

Letterkenny has great transport links so you will find it easy to get here and to find your way around town, whether by car, bus, taxi or on foot.

Letterkenny (Irish: Leitir Ceanainn, meaning "hillside of the O'Cannons"), nicknamed "the Cathedral Town", is the largest and most populous town in County Donegal, Ireland. It lies on the River Swilly in east Donegal.


The town is renowned for its night-life, with enterprises such as Club Voodoo, The Grill, and The Pulse regularly attracting international names. The Aura Complex, near O'Donnell Park, includes an Olympic-standard swimming pool, the Danny McDaid Athletic Track and an arena capable of hosting top-level events. In 2015 it was awarded the accolade of being judged to be the tidiest town in Ireland.

On-campus car parking


There are 542 spaces at Main Campus to North of Port Road and 224 spaces at Car Park opposite Campus to South of Port Road.

Car park P1, at the South Campus, opens Monday to Friday from 8 am to 10 pm during term time. It is locked overnight, at weekends and at all times outside term time. There is a weight restriction of 2.5 tonnes and a height restriction of 2.05m applicable to all vehicles entering this car park. Signalised pedestrian crossings facilities are provided at two separate locations to facilitate pedestrians crossing the Port Rd. from the car park and elsewhere. Crossing at any other point, including the island in the centre of the road, is not permitted as it could lead to a serious accident.

There is a traffic flow restriction barrier on the main campus located between the main building and CoLab. This barrier constrains traffic to flow from the north to the south of the main campus only. This barrier is raised after 4.00 pm when the barrier at the Visitors Car Park lifts to allow traffic flow from south to north to ease traffic congestion.  

A visitors' car park is located in the area between the main building and CoLab and access to this car park is available to visitors on legitimate LYIT business and by arrangement only. Click here to find out more about car park management.
