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.


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 can’t thank you, Micheál and the Harvey’s team enough for everything you guys did for us not only on the day of our wedding but during the lead up to it as well. You really do go above and beyond to make wedding dreams come true. From the rooms to the wedding day banquet our guests

could not believe the attention to detail and the impeccable service right across the board. There were an unbelievable amount of compliments on how courteous and pleasant all of the staff were. This is one of the main reasons we fell so very quickly in love with the place. And the food? Words can’t express how delightful every course was!
We certainly plan to come back over next year and are both very much looking forward to it already. Harvey’s Point will always stand as the true gem in those famous Donegal hills and we will always be truly thankful for the perfect wedding experience you and the team provided for us!
From the bottom of our hearts, we honestly can’t thank you, Micheál and the team enough!

See you soon

We would like to thank everyone at Harvey's Point for creating a truly magical day for our wedding on the 12th July. The service provided was of the highest level. We cannot praise Samantha highly enough for her role throughout the build up and on the day itself. She guided us through everything and

nothing was ever too big an ask. The other staff on the day were also brilliant. The venue itself was beautiful and we got some great photos on the grounds overlooking the lough. The food was also amazing and we heard nothing but compliments from guests in the days after. Looking forward to making a return in the near future.

Harvey's point was an amazing venue to have our wedding, the setting is idyllic and the ballroom itself its beautiful overlooking the gorgeous Lough Eske. That said, it was the staff that really made our day, absolutely everyone we dealt with in Harvey's point from managers to concierge to reception

staff to bar and wait staff were incredibly attentive and welcoming to us and all of our guests who were just blown away. Michael and Samantha went above and beyond to make sure that in the months leading up to the wedding and throughout the entire day everything ran smoothly, no request was any trouble and it made everything easy and stress free. From the delicious food to the small detail of having tea and wedding cake for us in our amazing bridal suite at the end of the night it could not have been better and we are so happy that we chose Harvey's point as our venue. Thank you!! Emma & Anthony

Hi Samantha, Micheál and team,
Greetings from Greece!
A massive thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping coordinate our wedding on Saturday 15th June.
We have had comments from everyone about the slick operation of the maitre-d and all the waiting staff, the huge rooms, the food and

the warmth of the check-in staff.
A special mention for Carla, who helped keep us right at the dinner. She was an absolute legend. Even went out of her way to get me a charger for my phone! 5-star service!
Also the bar staff, particularly Ryan. He made the effort to shake our hands at the end of the night before last orders and double check if we needed any last drink orders. Very much appreciated and very professional.
Also special mentions to Sean in the circle bar, whose natural warmth always shines through every time we have a visit. He went to the bother of changing some coffees that some (fussy) guests weren’t happy with.
And to Aoife on reception for her incredible patience and enthusiasm.
A huge thank you from myself to Micheál who helped fix my buttonhole flower, tie my shoelaces, adjust my bow tie and even fix up my cuff links! What a star!
And Samantha, how you remain so calm and composed is amazing! You helped keep us relaxed and stress-free, even arranging an extra bridesmaid room at the very last minute. Best coordinator ever! (sorry Micheál) ????
I especially want to thank you both for helping arrange Dale meeting my mum just before the ceremony started. It was a small thing in the overall scheme of things but meant so much to us both.
We look forward to returning to Harvey’s Point again soon. Have a fab week!
Thanks so much,
James and Dale

Jamie and I are both struggling to understand how it has been a month already since the wedding.

Anyway, this is just a quick email to thank you, Samantha, Micheál and all the staff for everything you did for us on the run-up to the wedding and throughout the day, honestly we cannot thank you

enough, nothing was ever a problem! From the day we booked, you have all gone above and beyond, sorting everything and making every wish come true, as cheesy as that sounds! All of our guests are still talking about how brilliant the venue was and how the food/meal was “unreal”, how all the staff were so friendly and helpful. The coordination of everything was simply flawless from start to finish, and we are eternally grateful for this.
