Introducing Glenties

At the foot of two valleys with a southern backdrop laid on by the Blue Stack Mountains, the proud Tidy Town of Glenties (Na Gleannta) is a good spot for fishing and has some cracking walks in the surrounding countryside. Glenties is linked with playwright Brian Friel, whose play (and subsequent film), Dancing at Lughnasa, is set in the town.

Brennan's B&B offers a warm welcome and three comfy guest rooms.

The Bus Eireann service (No 492) from Donegal stops in Glenties (€9.10, one hour), and continues to Dungloe (€5.50, 45 minutes) twice daily.
