Reviewed 19 July 2009

Enjoyed a wonderful four night stay at this fabulous hotel. The food was magnificent and the staff were fantastic. I am looking forward to a return visit as soon as possible. Thank you to all at Harveys Point!

We were welcomed at the front door by Brendan which was a lovely start to our weekend and set the standard we came to expect from the moment we entered the hotel. We were not dissappointed, as all the staff seemed aware of your presence at all times who were ready to help in whatever way they could.
We dined in the stak house as the restaurant was not open on a sunday or monday night. This was a little dissapointing however we certainly were not dissapointed with the food. The steaks were DELICIOUS and servfed with peas, mash and sauce - perfect! The breakfast was the best breakfast we have ever had in any of the hotels around the world we had ever stayed in! fresh, tasty, full of flavour and the choice was nearly too much. On our second morning we planned to sit and enjoy the experiance fr 2 hours it was that good! The room! was fabulous and huge! Need i go on! Well done to Harveys point I couldnt fault it! We will be back!

I have just arrived back from what i can only describe as the most perfect weekend in a truly luxurious hotel!! From the friendly staff to the gorgeous room and grounds I can't wait to go back again!!!

The only thing was the weather, but that isn't the fault of the hotel. It's a beautiful location, the food in the new Steakhouse and the main dining room was fantastic. I was there for the Echos of Ireland night with Malachy Cush - what a singer! The only thing was that i think it should be held in a bigger room.

Ten out of ten!!

Quite simply, magnificent.

The luxury and comfort of the Executive Suite; the ambience (welcoming and friendly without being overbearing); the simply exquisite dining - gourmet, steakhouse (and spectacular breakfasts!); the speedy and superb room service; the beautiful surroundings.

When one reads the narrative in the brochure relating to the conception of this hotel, one gets a sense of a family enterprise that has been a labour of love,passion and drive; all I can say is this - that vision is perhaps the most spectacularly realised I have encountered, and it finds fruition in every aspect of this wonderful hotel.

After only two nights, we simply cannot wait to return - this is the type of destination that one is sorry to leave, and has spoilt us for anywhere else, it really is that good.

I cannot stress enough how wonderful the experience was, and would, without hesitation, recommend this fantastic hotel to anyone looking for something very special indeed.

Harvey's Point on Lake Eske exceeded our expectations. It sets peacefully on one of the most beautiful lakes in Ireland. We caught this area of Ireland during an unusually warm time and the unairconditioned room was a bit warm. However, this was more then offset by the plush environment, the impecable service, the friendly and helpful staff, the service and meals in all the restaurants, especially the breakfast crew. The summer Cabaret was certainly very enjoyable, but that is not what will bring us back. We will come because the people cared about our stay and did whatever they could to make us feel welcome. Thanks Harvey's Point staff!!

Have to agree with all the positive reviews here. We have just arrived back from a fantastic couple of days at Harveys Point. Everything about the hotel is first class, from breakfast with chef cooking pancakes to order to the sumptuous dinners in the restaurant. Our room was in the 'courtyard' section and had a fabulous view of Lough Eske and as it was situated a few steps away from main building was extremely quiet. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful staff and every request was dealt with We normally take a few trips abroad each year and this was our first holiday in Donegal .
We cannot wait to spend another few days in Harveys Point.
Thank you and well done to all the staff

Having just returned from the hotel after just a nights stay , i cant recommend it enough. it was so peaceful and just lovely. my fiance and i were celebrating our anniversary and he had ask if there was any chance of an upgrade which we got,O.M.G it was massive,much bigger than what we needed but amazing all the same, really made our stay special. the staff were lovely, everyone saying hello,askin how we were etc, just lovely. we ate in the new steakhouse restaurant and it ws fab, as was breakfast again another lovely feast with friendly service. its just a pity perhaps that there wasnt a spa at the hotel cause that would have topped the perfect weekend off,but ill not complain, except that we couldnt stay any longer!
