A gem of a hotel in Donegal! I was attending a friend's wedding and the hotel did not disappoint. Rooms are large and spotless. The hotel setting is fantastic and while the hotel can't control the weather, a walk around the lake watching the swans is a must. The food for the wedding was amongst the best I've had at...

It is not possible to overstate how enjoyable an experience it is to stay at Harvey's Point. It will absolutely spoil you for any other hotel. The two most key things for us were the setting - i.e. the lake is stunning and the hotel maximises its views at every turn and the second was the staff who were so...
