“Just as Good Second Time Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

We visited Harveys Point on a trip over to Ireland from Australia many years ago before the new additions had been made. We loved in then and were determined to revisit during our holiday a few weeks ago. We were not disappointed. The new wing is fantastic, the rooms very tasteful and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. The dining was top class, service and ambience all excellent. Would love to return again.

My husband and I have just spent 2 extremely relaxing days at Harvey's Point in Donegal, which was a birthday treat. Our Executive room was palatial and by far one of the biggest and most luxurious rooms that we have ever stayed in. Even the bathroom had a tub for 2, his and her matching sinks and a vanity unit for us girls to put on makeup and dry our hair. The staff in the hotel couldn't do enough to help and were extremely friendly. We enjoyed fine dining in the a la carte restaurant and in the morning tucked into an all inclusive hearty full Irish breakfast from a hot and cold buffet area. The restaurant and bar both had a beautiful view of the glistening waters of Lough Eske. This is a perfect hotel for couples who want to relax or go walking in the nearby Blue Stack mountains. We both absolutely loved it. The only drawback for me was the fact that there was no gym, but then again there were those mountains to climb.....!

Dear Jane, Many thanks for writing such a lovely review of your recent experience at Harvey's Point. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit and hopefully in the future we can offer the facility of a gym and pool for our guests. In the meantime, we will have to climb those mountains and a dip in the lake is not out of the question! Greetings from the Gysling Family & the Harvey's Point Team.

Elegant,very spacious accommodation dubbed "Executive" which was the least expensive! Staff unusually friendly and courteous. We asked what the differences of higher levels were and learned that, e.g., the tubs, similar in size to ours (huge), had Jacuzzi jets.
Bathroom also was very large overall with toilet and bidet, bath and separate oversize shower, two sinks. Wonderful view. Separate sitting room area. 42" flat screen plasma TV.
Dinner and breakfasts were first rate.

Attentive Staff, Amazing food, ideal location, perfect ambience... Harveys Point has it all... Go for the buffet if you can. And fast for days beforehand. Not to be missed if you're in the area. Rooms are extremely spacious and luxurious.
