Harvey's Point was listed by the Georgina Campbell Ireland Guide as the 2017 Hotel of the Year and it is very easy to see why. The location is magnificent with panoramic views of Lough Eske from the Lake Shore Suites and the Restaurant. We spend two nights here on a beautifully sunny weekend at the end of March and used...

We stayed there for two nights but ended up staying the third night it was that fabulous. What impressed us the most were the activities arranged by the hotel, the accommodation and the amazing atmosphere created by staff. The food was excellent.

First time visiting Harvey's Point. The hotel is very nice and the staff are particularly friendly and welcoming. The rooms are huge, bigger than suits in most hotels. The food was also very good. Only small negative is no swimming pool.

We stayed for 2 nights with elderly grandparents, two teenagers and a dog. Lakeshore rooms were brilliant with the dog and the kids had a sofa bed each. Grandparents had a fantastic stay in a premium room and despite living in the Far East for 30 years, had never stayed in a room as spacious! We had the tasting menu...

My wife and I spent three nights in one of the lakeside suites. The service and the accommodations were perfect. The meals were fantastic and the staff just could not do enough for us. One of the meals was in the main restaurant. As a treat from the chef we were served a little cup white asparagus veloute. It was...

Celebrated my friend's wedding here last weekend. What a venue! The hotel is very well maintained. The wedding buffet starters and desserts were really impressive- my friends and I were guilty of over- indulging! The buffet breakfast was really out of this world. They thought of everything. I would recommend trying the pancakes. My friends enjoyed their freshly made omelettes....

Had a lovely two night break here in February. One thing I would say is on arrival the entrance I thought needed a little upgrading, railings were rusty and hotel has quite an old fashioned exterior but thankfully that didn’t matter once inside. A warm Donegal welcome awaited us, we were checked in quickly and escorted to our Lake View...
