My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful stay in Harvey's point. The moment we arrived until we left everything was perfect. The staff are so pleasant and helpful they make the time there special. The food in all areas is first class. We can't wait to return.

We stayed for two nights in August. The hotel was highly recommended by a family member. Didn't think it could have been as good as the recommendation but what we found was a lovely room, overlooking the lake,in a comfortable hotel, in a fabulous scenic location, serving great food, with superior service. Go for it...

From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were (as was everybody) greeted and treated in a manner that is sadly lacking in a lot of our hotels today. The staff were so friendly, efficient and courteous throughout the night. The meal and service was fantastic - the entertainment was amazing. This is a night not to be missed. Its on every Wednesday up until Oct. I hope to be back. Well done Harveys Point.

Just spent the most fansatic night at Harvey's Point in gorgeous Donegal with my husband. Having booked a deluxe double room we arrived mid-afternoon and were greeted by the lovely Sean and were checked in by Michelle. Sean kindly helped us to our room......sorry our Penthouse Suite!!! We were very lucky to arrive at the right time and were treated to a fantastic upgrade. The suite was spectacular, particularly our own private bar and the double jacuzzi bath!!
Everything about this hotel was fantastic (had a sneak peak at the double deluxe room which was also fabulous). The view of Lough Eske and the Blue Stack Mountains is stunning and the setting is just perfect for a romantic getaway. The food in the restaurant was first class (dinner and breakfast) and the service was second to none and I think the upgrade to the Penthouse Suite brought some extra attention and service!!
Just a pity were were only there for one night......we will definitely return to this top class hotel and let's hope Michelle is on reception!!

What a gem of a place Harvey's point is! From the minute we arrived all the staff were very friendly & attentive. We had a family celebration, so there was quite a few of us!! Nothing was impossible to make our stay comfortable & memorable! And let me tell you we had a lot of needs & requirements?! We had a wonderful dinner in the semi private area of the restaurant, food was divine! Love the attention to detail in this hotel. We only stayed for one night, wished it was longer! Will know better next time!!
Would Highly recommend Harvey's Point for a function/celebration, a family break or a intimate break for two!!
Can't wait to go back! :)
