We went as a large group for a family get-together meal. Most people only wanted a main course and the menu for this was quite limited. Nine of us sat round a large table and ordered. Our tenth guest travelled the full width of Ireland and was late arriving. When he entered we welcomed him and moved round to make... More

Mind blowing is the best word to describe our overall experience of Harveys Point. The warmth and professionalism of their staff do them credit. The quality of their food was second to none. There were lots of special touches that made the evening very special. And the caberet was a lot of fun with some exceptionally talented performers. Fantastic value... More

Popped into Harvey's Point when staying in Lough Eske Castle Hotel and was welcomed with open arms by the lovely concierge Sean. Decided to book for dinner that evening and we were not disappointed. Fabulous meal, great service in wonderful surroundings. Would recommend this lovely place to anybody

Came with my aunt, gran and aunts friend for the cabaret. Food was yummy, except the beef was slightly more cooked than I would have preferred. Other than that, it was all fantastic! Too many choices for starters and desserts that it was hard to choose. I was slightly skeptical of the cabaret as the audience was mainly older people... More

Visited the hotel today for Sunday carvery and what can I say. Two and a half hours of bliss! Taken to our table by a very helpful gentleman who explained how the carvery was served and then our soup order was taken. Gorgeous country vegetable soup served with a roll . We then visited the extensive starter buffet. Mussels, salmon,... More
