Modern and welcoming, with a taste of home!
The highlands hotel has just been through a multi-million euro refurb and the place is stunning. Somehow in the middle of a complete rebuild they managed to keep the one thing that really matters - the fabulous staff and wonderful welcoming atmosphere. For my first time back to Donegal in 20 years, they made it feel like home again. Thank you.

Perfect hotel for the location and surroundings
Recently renovated, the highlands hotel was a pleasure to stay at. Super nice staff, gorgeous room. The food was excellent. The locations if very secluded and a great getaway to recharge.
Ireland - 5 March 2022
I'm going back to Glenties
    when the harvest fields are brown,
And the Autumn sunset lingers
    on my little Irish town,
When the gossamer is shining
    where the moorland blossoms blow 
I'll take the road across the hills
    I tramped so long ago-
'Tis far I am beyond the seas,
    but yearning voices call,
"Will you not come back to Glenties,
    and your wave-washed Donegal?"
