I spent a night here while walking around Ireland in aid of Pieta House and they kindly offered to put me up for the night! I found the hotel itself extremely charming; in a time where it seems every hotel is starting to look the same, the Highlands has held on to its own warm, welcoming atmosphere. The staff are...

Back again for another stay at the Highlands and we were not disappointed. Despite all the major renovations going on the hotel was a good as ever! Our rooms were warm and clean, a little dated but nice and clean. The staff in the hotel are more than friendly and will go out of their way to do anything for...

We called there during a family trip to Donegal on our way to Dungloe. Food was good, service was slow and the disabled toilet facilities are a disgrace. The people who own this hotel should borrow a wheelchair and try to utilise these facilities themselves. Its amazing what can pass for disabled access in this instance. We won't be calling...

I was with a party of bikers on a tour of Donegal, so I had no choice as to where we stayed, but his place was "just the ticket", a real Irish welcome, basic, well run, clean, nothing was "a bother", strong shower, comfortable bed, generous helpings of food & fast service in the restaurant, great value, good cooked breakfast,...

After a day on the beach, we dropped in for a bite to eat and we're very happy with what we found. Very friendly and helpful staff and some of the tastiest chowder I've ever tried. Minor disappointment because the homemade apple pie was sold out but will just have to return again :) Live music to enjoy also Well...

We spent about 5 days in the hotel. We found the food excellent, the facilities good, although not having wifi in the room but only in the lounge which is free, though) was a small minus. What was extraordinary though was the hospitality extended to us by the staff. A few times we came way beyond the indicated times for...
