This was our first visit to Harvey's Point and the quality of the hotel, bedroom, and food, was only surpassed by the quality of service from the exceptionally friendly staff. If you want total relaxation in the most beautiful of locations then this is a hotel experience you won't want to miss.

I spent my 65th Birthday at Harvey's Point and had a really lovely time. The location of the hotel, beside Lough Eske, was stunning. Our room was very stylish and comfortable. The food in both the Seafood Grill/Bar and the restaurant was excellent. The staff are really friendly and helpful. This is one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: We stayed in an executive room which was very comfortable. However, they have Lakeshore suites, wit...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights for our 'baby moon'. Upon arrival we were upgraded to to a fantastically spacious deluxe room and welcomed by a very friendly concierge - Brendan. The first night we ate in the seafood bar, followed by the main restaurant the second night and then the seafood bar again - absolutely delicious... But one complaint how am I going to get rid of this excess weight ive put on.The food was so good we ate far to much. Harveys point certainly set the standard upon which ever hotel should be judged.

Our third stay at Harveys Point and yet again had a wonderful relaxing weekend. Warm Welcome, upgraded room, excellent food and service. One thing you notice about this Hotel is how friendly & helpful all members of staff are from the cleaning staff, maintenance, reception and the restaurant, one of the many reasons we return. Well Done Harveys Point will definately be returning again!

Wonderful staff - nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a twin suite with 2 giant double beds - best hotel rooms I've experienced anywhere. We'd like to have tried the 'fine dining' restaurant but the occasion wasn't suitable. However, we did enjoy our meal in the Seafood Bar and the breakfasts were superb. Highly recommended and good value too.

Just a very quick thank you for all the staff at Harvey's Point who made my stay so very ......Irish. The gentleness of the verdant countryside of Donegal and Lough Eske really was matched by the welcome and gentle smiles and great service of the staff who looked after me. I have already booked again for Christmas week.....................Thank you for a wonderful stay with amazing food and Palatial and spotlessly clean rooms.

Sean and Colin were delightful to talk with.

The open peat fire tucked away in the snug at reception was so typical of the thought given to detail found throughout the hotel......Wish I could buy shares.

Heart rate suitably soothed to face every day life again!

Kindest Regards

We stayed at Harvey's Point for our 5th wedding anniversary and enjoyed it so much that we booked for our 10th. When we arrived, the lovely receptionist checked us in and we were delighted that we had been given a complimentary upgrade and would received some prosecco when we arrived for our meal. We went to our room which was was "out of this world!" We decided to opt for the new Seafood bar for our dinner and I have to say it was amazing and the staff were second to none... It was the 20th July and the weather was scorching. We spent a relaxing afternoon by the water and then took a lovely walk around the grounds. We had a ball and were sad to leave the next day. I can't wait for the next special occasion so that we can return and this time, I'm booking for two nights!
