“The most luxurious hotel ever!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Me, my mum and dad, my brother and sister, (they were between the ages of 5 and 9), my grand-parents and my uncle and his wife all stayed here for 2 nights and had a perfect time! We came to the hotel to celebrate my grand-parents wedding anniversary. the staff were all very helpful. the food was amazing, though not the type of food for children though it was ideal for our family as we are all quite adventurous with our food! the pool and leisure centre were good too! though the best feature of our trip were the rooms! the whole family loved our rooms! the one my family had was very spacious and had a good tv and view in it! the bathroom was huge and me and my sister spent nearly the whole time in it because you could play music in it and there was candles beside the big bath! but we really loved the mirror in the bathroom because it was like one of those mirrors in dressing rooms for celebrities, with the circular lights around it! though this holiday was deer... it was worth it!

Room Tip: i would chose the more expensive room to get the same kind of features we got!

An excellent choice to celebrate the Mother-in-law's 90th Birthday at the cabaret. Again a five star welcome with five star service. Very highly recommended.

Upon arriving in this tranquil paradise, we were overwhelmed with joy when the receptionist gave us a complimentary upgrade to the penthouse suite. We were in a pleasant shock as we entered our 7 roomed suite!!!!,( yes 7 if you include bathrooms and walk in wardrobes). A glass of wine, sitting on the high stools of our private bar, we slowly relaxed in bliss. The hotel is nestled on the shores of lough Eske, and a walk around its grounds diminishes any woes and stresses you may have. Staff are extremely professional and friendly. We only booked 1 night, as we had a hotel booked in Galway the following night, but we soon changed our minds when the receptionist confirmed they had a room available for a 2'nd night was booked for us ( sorry Galway). Book this hotel, bring a book, relax in large jacuzzi or a stroll by the lake and retire on the terrace with a drink. You won't regret it.

Stayed for 5 nights and what a joy! The deluxe room was fantastic, what luxury! The sound of silence is my lasting memory, the scenary is beautiful. Attended the Cabaret on Wed night, a great nights entertainment. The selection offered for breakfast was superb. Most of all, the staff were outstanding in every aspect.
Will be back as soon as I can, to hear the sound of silence !

We attended a friend'ds daughters wedding in Harveys Point. When we were first asked to attend the wedding last year I visited the web site my husband and I then decided to make a nice break and we booked for 3 nights. The experience has been FABULOUS!! We both agree it was the most luxurious hotel experience we have ever had. Congratulations to all the staff on their hospitality and thank you all,. We will most certainly come to stay again and recommend you to all our friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 206 and it was so peaceful and quiet and the view was wonderful
