Have just returned from a weekend stay at Carey's Viking House, sharing 3 rooms with my family within this lovely, little "home from home" hotel. The location is indeed beautiful with the hotel itself overlooking the sea and the staff are truly wonderful, always time for a chat and nothing ever too much trouble - Siobhan, who we met on reception when we first arrived, couldn't have been more helpful and certainly set the tone for the rest of our stay, Pauline (the owner) always time for a chat with nothing ever too much trouble and the lovely Danielle who even gave us a lift in her own car when we couldn't get a taxi. The food too was fabulous, home cooked and always generous portions. This little hotel is a real gem of a find in the heart of the Gaeltacht, North West Donegal - make sure to visit the beautiful blue flag beach at Carrickfinn and Leo's Tavern in Crolly (home to Clannad and Enya) during your stay.
