We booked in here (very last minute) on a recent trip to Donegal, and we really enjoyed our too-brief stay. The hotel is small and isn't particularly fancy, but it is very reasonably priced and has a lovely warm welcoming atmosphere. Our room was very comfortable and we were so well looked after. It's obvious it is family-run which I think adds to the authentciity of the welcome. The food was delicious, and Zaria who looked after us was so friendly and chatty and is a credit to the place (she was also singing the praises of the owner which is lovely to hear!) Would definitely recommend this little gem to anyone exploring the gorgeous Donegal coastline.

We travelled from Dublin to Donegal to catch a ferry to Tory Island for the holidays. Ferry was cancelled due to weather, so we booked a last minute B&B in Viking House. The owner, Pauline, and all of the staff there could not have been more helpful and friendly. Homely feel, obviously loved by the locals. We were accommodated with early check in as we were stranded, late checkout with late breakfast. Dinner and desert was delicious...pints just as good, served by local, friendly staff. Stay here for the amazing views of the wild Atlantic way.
