We were fortunate enough to avail of a deal for the Viking in the middle of July with friends. This is a small hotel/guest house with it's own bar & restaurant. Hospitality was great, rooms were comfortable & the bar had a great atmosphere. Cannot speak highly enough of the staff & owner of the hotel. It was a busy weekend & all the staff were very busy but they always had time for the guests. We seldom eat in restaurants as we prefer the informality of bar food. The food was great and the value was excellent. Music in the bar on Saturday night was entertaining, a couple of local, (if you call Letterkenny local) enjoyed what they were doing & you could not help enjoying the craic, so much so that even yours truly took to the mic on the night. Overall, 10/10 for this establishment. Good staff, good food, great location, great atmosphere whilst we were there. Highly recommended.
The only negative being: it's a long drive from Dublin but it was worth the journey. We hope to avail of this hotel again in the future.
