We are just back from a two night stay and had a lovely time.I have been reading the reviews for a couple of months and I just have a few reservations about how in awe of the place some people are and how this colours your expectations. This is the only slightly negative thing I will write about it because...

I stayed here recently with my husband. Overall our experience was such that we would visit again. The staff throughout our stay were friendly and attentive. We had one evening meal in the restaurant and the food was excellent. I would have given 5 stars, but we had a meal in the bar on our second night there and we...

We had a large room overlooking the lake, on the second floor. The staff was very friendly and provided terrific service. This includes the owner who was at breakfast each morning talking with the guests. Outstanding breakfast every morning! Great location for day trips around County Donegal.

We spent 2 nights at Harvey's Point on our tour of North Western Ireland. I selected it because of its high ratings on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed although I would not necessarily rate it the absolutely best hotel in Ireland. Its very nice but I just don't think its the best, in part because of the restaurant. The...

We stayed for two nights in one of the penthouse suites, and I don't think I have ever been to a more perfect hotel. The room was huge and spotlessly clean. We were there for a celebration and were touched by the bottle of champagne they sent to the room. All of the staff, especially Mark were friendly and helpful....

Harvey's Point is a beautiful property, with a wonderful breakfast and bar. We had a spacious "executive room" with a sitting area, kitchenette area and large, luxurious bathroom. My two regrets: we had a view of the parking lot; and it was a good distance from Donegal and we thought it was within walking distance.
