We returned today from an amazing weekend in an amazing hotel. Went to Harveys Point for my girlfriend's birthday and from the minute we arrived we were taken back with the quality. We were greeted in the premium suite room with a pleasant gift of a box of chocolates for my girlfriends birthday. The room was very spacious, very clean... More

We had the pleasure of staying in Harveys Point last weekend. From start to finish our stay was perfect. The room was outstanding and the Jacuzzi was to die for. We dined in the restaurant and the food and service was fantastic. Staff could not do enough for us. The hotel is beautiful and the service is top class. The... More

We needed an escape from the daily grind and visited Harvey's Point for two nights. Service was very personable and attentive from the moment we got in after a bit of a hairy drive through rain, sleet and Dublin rush hour traffic. Food was a bit more interesting than the average Irish country hotel. The Donegal scenery was fabulous and... More

Visited Harvey's with my partner for the third time there in September. I really have never stayed at a nicer hotel! The executive rooms are fantastic and the Penthouse Suite, where we stayed this time, is just out of this world! It's obvious that so much thought has gone into the hotel and in particular the bedrooms. Everything you could... More

We spent 3 nights at Harvey's Point in mid October 2016. The inn is in a lovely setting on Lough Eske and has some very nice features. Overall, it's a nice place. There are, however, some things to bear in mind before you choose to stay there... 1. The inn, built in several stages, is new, not an old country... More

Dear Guest, Thank you most sincerely for taking the time to write such a detailed description of your views of Harvey's Point. It certainly makes for interesting reading. To be honest, I will admit that it is hard to categorise Harvey's Point. It is not an old manor country house. It is not typical of a Las Vegas Casino resort.... More

On the shore of Lough Eske, this splendid hotel affords excellent accommodation, first rate food, good entertainment and the most caring and good-humoured staff one could hope to find. And even cookery demonstrations are wine tasting thrown in for extras.

We had been very much looking forward to staying in the Hotel but unfortunately was left disappointed on arrival.
