Highlands Hotel embodies with a special ease and grace what we hope is the very essence of Irishness


The Highlands Hotel has been run by the Boyle family for almost seventy years and is one of the few Irish Hotels still genuinely run by a family, with a Boyle family member always close at hand to welcome guests. The hotel is known for its warm homely atmosphere, and family and staff members endeavour to make guests feel welcome and relaxed – nothing is too much trouble.

The hotel is situated in the picturesque town of Glenties, which has won awards both in the national Tidy Towns competition and the international European competition, Entente Florale. Glenties is set in the heart of the Bluestack  Mountains of southwest Donegal, and is an ideal location for the active  traveller as the surrounding glens are a haven for hill walkers and cyclists, and a series of marked walks and tracks (gentle or demanding)  meander through the country-side
