We stayed as a couple for 3 nights. Gorgeous room, gorgeous food, lovely staff. Fab scenery and just so relaxing. The breakfast is superb with everything you could possibly want. We had dinner in the restaurant and in the bar and the food is wonderful. I can't wait to go back, this was our first visit but will not be our last!

Room Tip: We had a premium room with lake view but executive rooms are lovely too.

We hosted a conference recently at Harveys Point and confirm it was a great success thanks in no small measure to the attentions of the staff who responded to our every need. The conference included lunch which allowed the attendees to enjoy the fine fare which the hotel is famous for and the speakers who stayed overnight have each indicated their intention to return with their spouses at a later date. All in all it lived up to the high expectations and standards set by the hotel and developed over a number of years.

Room Tip: third visit and each room has been superb

We spent a day and night at Harveys Point and we're delighted with the location, stunning scenery and our lovely accommodation which was one of the 'Executive suites. It catered for our every need. The hotel staff were very helpful especially Raquel who also assisted with some jewellry purchases. The grounds around the lough are beautiful with range of wildlife to enjoy and admire. Only one minor fault was that the cafetière in our room was broken and while reported immediately to porter, it was not replaced before we left next day. Definitely worth a return visit. Felt pampered.

Dear Carol,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of your recent visit to Harvey's Point. We appreciate all guest feedback, especially if it highlights any area for improvement. Apologies about the broken cafetière. This of course should have been replaced before your arrival and certainly after you had reported it. I will follow up on this.

Raquel and the entire team join in sending you our warmest wishes and best regards. We would love to welcome you back again.

We stayed at Harveys Point Hotel for a Friday night offer of B&B and evening meal. The accommodation was excellent and we availed of the seven course tasting menu which was delightful. Staff were very friendly and helpful in all areas.
