Venue Overview

Lough Eske, Donegal Town, Donegal
Harvey’s Point is a luxury lakeside resort on the shores of Lough Eske in Co. Donegal. Surrounded by the stunning Bluestack Mountains and with panoramic views of Lough Eske, Harvey’s Point attracts visitors from every corner of the globe. Voted #1 Hotel in Ireland with Tripadvisor Traveler Choice Awards 2019.

Description

Blessed with one of Ireland’s most beautiful locations, on the shores of Lough Eske and at the foot of the Bluestack Mountains - a dramatic backdrop for those who opt to arrive by helicopter or boat. It’s a wonderful area to explore and anyone travelling here for the first time would be well advised to stay on a day or two - the hotel can organise a two or three day programme for wedding guests if required.

For the marriage ceremony, there’s a selection of churches to choose from locally and wedding blessings can also be arranged in this lovely waterside setting which also offers plenty of romantic options for photography.

Receptions are held in our luxurious suite, where tables can be arranged to seat 300 people and there are panoramic views over the lake from every table - with excellent cooking from head chef Chris Mc Menamin and his team to match. Recent changes have made it a far more luxurious hotel.

Accommodation includes 64 very spacious and luxurious bedrooms.

WE VISITED HARVEY'S POINT FOR LUNCH ONE SUNDAY AFTERNOON A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. wE WERE NEWLY ENGAGED BUT WERE IN NO RUSH TO MAKE ANY WEDDING PLANS. HOWEVER, SHORTLY AFTER ARRIVING AT HARVEY'S POINT WE BOTH KNEW WE WANTED TO HAVE OUR WEDDING THERE. IT WAS THE FIRST AND ONLY VENUE WE CONSIDERED. WE

THOUGHT IF OUR GUESTS WERE TO EXPERIENCE EVEN A FRACTION OF THE WONDERFUL HOSPITALITY AND EXCELLENT FOOD WE RECEIVED THAT DAY, WE WOULD BE HAPPY. OUR WEDDING DAY FAR EXCEEDED THAT EXPECTATION.

IT'S HARD TO DESCRIBE, BUT HARVEY'S POINT IS JUST A VERY SPECIAL PLACE. WHEN WE MET SOME OF OUR GUESTS 6 MONTHS LATER, THEY STILL REMARKED WHAT A FABULOUS TIME THEY'D HAD. WE RECEIVED EMAILS AND TEXTS IN THE WEEKS AFTER FROM OTHER GUESTS THANKING US FOR INVITING THEM AS THEY'D HAD SUCH A FANTASTIC TIME. hARVEY'S POINT DOES THAT, IT LEAVES A LASTING IMPRESSION.

THE TEAM ARE WORLD CLASS AT WHAT THEY DO AND I WOULD NOT ONLY RECOMMEND IT TO COUPLES FOR THEIR WEDDING, I WOULD GO AS FAR AS SAYING WE FEEL EXTREMELY FORTUNATE TO HAVE HAD OUR WEDDING THERE. WE PLANNED OUR ENTIRE WEDDING DAY (CEREMONY AND RECEPTION) WITH MICHEAL OVER EMAIL, FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY, AND IT WAS COMPLETELY EFFORTLESS. WE HAD BEEN AWAY FROM HOME MANY YEARS AND THE HOSPITALITY YOU EXPERIENCE AT HARVEY'S POINT IS THE EPITOME OF THE "CEAD MILE FAILTE" WHICH MAKES THIS COUNTRY UNIQUE. wE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO MICHEAL, SAMANTHA AND THE ENTIRE TEAM. THEY HELPED MAKE MEMORIES THAT WILL LAST FOR OUR LIFETIME.

WELL DONE TO ALL AND WE LOOK FORWARD TO RETURNING SOON.
rACHEL, shANE & dANNY!

with us about changes and restrictions, went out of their way to make everthing happen as we had originally planned and never made us feel like we were a burden, even though we felt it ourselves!
the day itself was perfect and felt so personal with 50 of our nearest and dearest. we were concerned that the fabulous new ballroom would look empty but the layout showed the ballroom off perfectly and the stunning lake views were all the more visible. our guests have been raving about the service, the personal touch and homely feeling that harvey's point offered, something they have not experienced anywhere else. the wedding hand sanitisers were a lovely touch at every place setting too! again, the guests have commented on the delicious meal, the evening buffet and the crisp sandwiches when the dancing was over! the food was truly amazing. The bedrooms are nothing short of palatial and such a treat for a special ocassion
we are delighted that we chose harvey's point for our big day and would highly recommend without hesitation for the service, THE food and overall experience. we are looking forward to our next trip TO HARVEY'S so that we can enjoy it for ourselves all over again!
THANK YOU TO MICHEÁL, SAMANTHA AND THE STAFF AT HARVEY'S POINT FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING DAY SO SPECIAL.

What an amazing wedding day we had in Harvey's point! From the minute samantha showed us around the hotel for the very first time, we knew it was the venue for us! Michael took care of Every detail throughout the planning in such a stress free and relaxed way, nothing was any trouble. On the day

of the wedding we couldn't have asked for more. Every tiny detail was catered for. Michael was there to greet us when we arrived and led us every step of the way throughout the day. The reception area for guests was perfect, it's so nice to have a private space for guests to sit and enjoy their DRINKs and canapes. The pier was the perfect place for PHOTOGRAPHS with the beautiful backdrop of lough eske. Its Great not having to travel too far for photos when december daylight is not on your side! The main reception room was decorated beautifully, the meal was first class and the staff were faultless. All rooms in the hotel are stunning but The bridal suite is something else! when we arrived to the room after dancing the night away we were met with a hot pot of tea on the table and our sliced wedding cake. Such a lovely, thoughtful touch. Thank you harveys point for making our dream wedding a reality, you really do think of everything!

From the first moment of enquiring about having our wedding at Harvey’s we were extremely well looked after.
When Micheál showed us what Harvey’s had to offer for our wedding we left the hotel on a high. We saw a number of other venues but this only left us with no doubt that Harvey’s was

the venue for us. No other venue gave us the feeling we got at Harvey’s. We maintain that this is down to all the friendly staff at Harvey’s who go out of their way to make you have the best experience possible. Nothing is too much trouble.
Kieran particularly enjoyed wheeling & dealing with Micheál to strike a deal.
One of the highlights for us was the tasting to choose the wedding menu.
Samantha & Micheál made the planning for our wedding effortless. They guided us through organising our big day with ease. They answered all our queries, offered advice, were flexible in catering to our requirements to make our day what we envisaged. They went above & beyond by speaking with the bakery to get instructions on setting up our wedding cake to helping us choose our entrance song.
All the staff at Harvey’s have a willingness to give guests a great experience. Marta looked after our every need during our wedding dinner & Noel ensured everyone was happy at breakfast the next morning.
As our wedding was on the 30th November Harvey’s went to the effort of putting up the Christmas trees & decorations which added an additional layer of magic to our day. Thank you, Harvey’s our wedding day was perfect. It truly was the best day of our life so far. You are experts in creating magical experiences.

Harvey's Point is an outstanding wedding venue. Upon first viewing the hotel Micheál gave us a friendly welcome and ensured we were aware of all Harvey's had to offer in a clear manner. There were no hidden costs in the process of booking, menu tasting, payments and all the things in between were

made easy and straightforward. Micheál and Samantha were responsive to all emails and phone calls throughout the planning process. Our experience on the actual wedding day was exceptional. The drinks reception room was beautiful and we had plenty of refreshments for everyone having pulled the sandwiches from the evening buffet, along with scones, cookies, beer and prosecco. The Ballroom was stunning, and given that our wedding was at Christmas, the festive decorations certainly added to the magic! The food was superb And we have had so many compliments with people particularly enjoying the starter buffer. The quality of the food overall was fantastic - no cheap cuts! The waiting staff were attentive and professional. Samantha, Micheál and the entire team at Harvey’s were exceptional working cohesively to ensure a perfect day. The ballroom is brilliant for the dancing too as it’s on a lower level to the seating and as the bar is in the room it keeps the group together which is essential, while also being big enough to hold a crowd up for a good hooley! You won’t be disappointed when the band packs up and you are escorted to your accommodation for the night! The penthouse feels like a hotel within a hotel - we won’t ruin the surprises that await but it will definitely be one of the nicest suites you will ever stay in! Again, while staging for the two nights after the wedding, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful, including the kind concierge who came with fresh sheets at 3 am on the second night when a stomach bug had gotten the better of the bride. He was so helpful and understanding! Our experience from start to finish with Harvey’s Point was 5 star and we would recommend it to anyone!
