Kerry & MartinMy husband and I cannot be happier with Harvey’s Point Hotel. From the very first day I contacted the hotel to reserve a date to after our wedding, the service from Samantha and Heidi has been simply amazing. Arranging a wedding can be hard work and we arranged ours from Australia which made things a little harder. The team at Harvey’s Point were so helpful, they answered my endless queries in a prompt, professional and friendly manner. Their assistance allowed me to relax and not stress about whether things would be the way we wanted them to be. We had friends and family stay at Harvey’s Point prior to and on the night of the wedding and they are all still talking about how beautiful the hotel is and how amazing the service is. The wedding day itself ran perfectly, there were no issues, nothing went wrong and we had so much fun. The food is outstanding and we are so happy we chose to have our wedding at Harvey’s Point, we have no doubt that it wouldn’t have been the same if we had chosen somewhere else. We can’t thank the team enough and are looking forward to visiting soon :) Thanks again for everything.

Kirsty & KarolChoosing where to host our big day wasn’t a difficult decision. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Harvey’s Point had an established reputation for delivering an excellent service with high quality food and drink. Not forgetting the stunning surroundings and friendly staff members.

Shortly after our engagement Karol and I went to a wedding fair in Harvey’s Point and it was there that we met with Samantha our Wedding Organiser and she helped us pick the date, 6th June 2015.
Samantha was fantastic to work with as she made the planning of wedding effortless with her extensive knowledge and experience. She was friendly, approachable and nothing was a problem. Sitting talking to Samantha it felt like we had known her a lifetime and myself and Karol were really pleased and delighted that we were in capable and safe hands which lifted a lot of weight of our shoulders. We had planned our wedding over two years and met with Samantha a handful of times to catchup and go over a few things. Everything was more or less taken care of by Samantha as she had carefully taken onboard all of our needs and wants. Heide was more than accomodating and a pleasure to work with as she also helped us out greatly also.

The day of the wedding was amazing as Harvey’s Point delivered a flawless service and the preparation and hardwork of all the staff was overwhelming. We couldn’t believe how wonderful everything was. It was just as we had wanted and we hadn’t exactly made it entirely easy for Samantha as we had left things until the night before i.e. centrepieces and song choices. Again, Samathan and Heide took everything in their stride and we were astonished at the effort and planning they had put into our special day. My guests and family are still talking about Harvey’s Point and many have been back since. Karol and I couldn’t have dreamt for a better day. :-)

Karol & Aled
We got married in Harvey’s Point in April this year and it was truly magical. You know with Harvey’s you’re going to get top class service all round and won’t need to worry about anything. Living abroad, Harvey’s were so accommodating, fitting us in for tastings during the brief weekends back, no matter how busy they were. Our guests are still talking about the quality of the service, food and the fantastic accommodation. Thank you Harvey’s!

Niamh & DermotWe would highly recommend Harvey’s Point to anyone considering having their wedding there. Its set in a beautiful waterside location, surrounded by mountains. On our wedding day, we were lucky and had beautiful weather, our guests were able to avail of the outside patio and enjoy the drinks reception. We’ve also been there when the weather is not as good and its surrounds are still dramatic, while inside, open log fires make the hotel cozy and welcoming. The function rooms are spacious and inviting, with large windows looking out at the fantastic views from the hotel.

The bedrooms in the hotel are beautiful, finished to a very high standard and feel very luxurious. When booking your bedrooms remember to agree the amount of rooms and room rates for both family allocation and other guests rooms in advance. Tell guests who are not on the family allocation to book the guest rate early as for us the bedrooms booked up fast.

Harvey’s Point is well known for its fabulous food and both our meal and evening buffet were great. The desert buffet is a must have! We received overwhelming positive comments from our guests on the food, and this continued throughout their stay. The staff were really nice and the service was excellent. Each member of staff were extremely professional and courteous, and made the atmosphere even more welcoming and friendly for our guests; exactly what we wanted. In particular, Heidi our wedding coordinator in Harvey’s was fantastic, she was easy to work with, flexible and helpful. All the staff at the hotel really made an effort to make the day the best it can be. We wouldn’t have any negative comments at all. It really is a special hotel!

Joanne & PaulHarvey’s Point was the perfect venue for our wedding!

The location, the scenery, the food and the staff were all first class. The best thing about the hotel is that they make your day as stress-free as possible, nothing is too much trouble and they will go to great lengths to ensure the day goes exactly as you want.

Heide, Sara, Samantha and all the staff couldn’t do enough for us and we really appreciated everything they did for us. Harvey’s Point is famous for their food, and it will not disappoint! The buffet dessert was especially popular amongst our guests!

We could not fault anything about the hotel and would recommend it to anyone! Thanks to all at Harvey’s!!

Joanne & Johnny

I had my wedding reception in Harvey’s Point in April 2015 and loved it! My husband and I looked at a range of other venues, but our hearts were set on Harvey’s Point from the beginning. The location by the lake, the friendliness and attention of staff, the beautiful food as well as the warm welcoming interior all contributed to us and our guests having an amazing day. We can’t wait to go back to revisit some of the memories!

Breeda & Aidan

We had our wedding at Harvey’s Point in April. It was a fantastic day, all the staff and management went out of their way to make our day incredibly special. Our guests were also really impressed by the standard of service, the hospitality of the staff and the beautiful location. We both thought that Harveys point was was great value considering the service we got and we would highly recommend this venue to any couple planning their wedding day.

Joanne & Emmett

Where to begin…
We were absolutely captivated with this stunning hotel and wonderful staff from the minute we stepped foot in it when we were researching possible locations. We were superbly looked after from the very outset and made to feel like the only couple to get married in the venue which is a serious accomplishment as the hotel is so busy with weddings. They made what must be an everyday occurrence for them, an absolutely unforgettable experience. Guests at the wedding, to this day, recall memories of the service and the food (oh my goodness, delicious!). I cried (this never happens I promise) leaving the premises when all was over as the whole experience was so utterly magical. Harvey’s and their wonderful team look after every little detail and add so many elements to enhance your day that are just wonderful and exquisitely executed to give your special day that extra bit of sparkle (I am reluctant to describe them as I feel that I would be erroneous to reveal the experience for any other couple). Suffice to say that we had the most amazing day of our lives, and our twin girls are still to this day talking about the day we all got married in Harvey’s! :) They must be the only 6 year olds who know where they will have their receptions when/if they marry in the future. A very well done to Harvey’s on their impeccable style and service and we cannot wait to return.

Catherine & Robert

We had our wedding at Harvey’s Point on 15th November 2014. We had an absolutely brilliant day as did our guests – with thanks to all the members of the team there but especially Samantha, Heide and Sara who looked after us all so well both on the day and in the run up to the wedding. Also thanks to Annmarie who helped us with initial reservations. They are so professional and took a lot of potential stress out of the organising. Everything about the day there was fantastic -the welcome as we arrived, the beautiful room set up, amazing quality (and quantity) of food, excellent service and comparing from the charismatic Noel Cunningham. Aside from a stunning location and property, everyone we came into contact with was so friendly and helpful. The honeymoon suite was fabulous – we were sorry we didn’t have more time in it!! Breakfast the next day was better than we have had in some five-star hotels. They go the extra mile at Harvey’s Point – small example but the night before the wedding my husband was staying there and they arranged food for him after the kitchen had closed – things like that you remember and it makes a difference! We would recommend a stay here for a wedding or otherwise and are looking forward to revisiting.

Sarah Jane and GarethWe celebrated our wedding reception in Harvey’s on 12/12/14 and returned from our honeymoon a couple of weeks ago where we spent time in 5-star hotels in Cape Verde and Florida and none compare to Harveys. It is simply out on its own.within days of getting engaged in Boston we came home and booked Harveys.I stayed the night prior to the wedding and the staff were brilliant…Samantha was superb the day before as I was anxious about various things.she was so calm and confident and my fears faded rapidly.its only now after the wedding I can see how all the staff are hand picked. The morning of the wedding was a hive of activity with me on the phone requesting extra robes(photo shoot), extra mirrors ( for hairdresser) and each request was met within minutes with a smile. The stylish, charming and charismatic Noel is a joy and a real asset to the hotel. The fuss the whole team made of me as I left the hotel for the church was quite overwhelming. The only way I can describe our experience is that you feel it’s the only wedding of the year…they made us feel so special and to think they do all this for 90 couples a year! The buffet style banquet is unique and guests are still talking about the display of starters, desserts, the gingerbread houses! The setting is picturesque and the snow capped mountains really set the scene. The bedrooms are some of the largest in Ireland. My brother in law, though having a few Vinos on board insisted on having a jacuzzi in the huge bath at 2:30 am following the wedding! The added details like fresh coffee and homemade cookies are delightful. The honeymoon suite I would quite happily live in!!! To the whole team…Noel, Sarah, Ger, Samantha, Heidi, Tara and everyone who helped make our day perfect ….THANKYOU.


Tony & Emer

We had our wedding at Harvey’s point on the 10th May this year. We had an absolutely amazing experience. From the moment we inquired about booking Harvey’s for our wedding venue to the big day itself, the staff could not have been more patient and helpful.
The venue itself is stunning, even on a wet day, the location was just beautiful. The rooms are pure luxury!
Our wedding guests are still talking about the food, a wide variety of choice for everyone’s tastes and dietary requirements.
Thanks so much for making our day unforgettable!
We hope to visit again soon :)

Ciara & Cahair

Myself and my husband Cathair, were married at Harvey’s Point, on the 22nd March 2014.We both emigrated to Australia in 2009, and once we were engaged, there was only one hotel which we wanted to have our wedding in, and it was everything we wished for and more.

The initial thought of organising a wedding with a 12 hour time difference was daunting, but once we met Sara and Samantha, the wedding co-ordinators at Harvey’s point, our minds were quickly put at ease.
Sara and Samantha are complete professionals, and without a doubt made our wedding day exceptional. Nothing was a problem for either of them. Anything we requested or wanted, they helped us get it.
As a special request, we wanted some Australian beer, so our guests could enjoy. Harvey’s Point were only too happy to help us organise this, and our guest’s just thought this was amazing.
Everything about this hotel is just Fab. All the hotel staff were just amazing on the day. No matter who it was, we were greeted so warmly and treated so well.
The food on our wedding day, was top class, and if you have never been at a wedding here,the food alone and the service is something everyone should experience.
The Honeymoon suite is unbelievable – honestly one of the best hotel suites I have seen in any country. The grounds of the hotel made for fantastic wedding photographs, and it was the only place we wanted to have them on the day.
I am so privileged that this beautiful hotel is in my native Donegal, and I highly recommend it if you are looking for something special for your wedding day.
We can’t wait to go home and enjoy another stay here.
Thank you Harvey’s Point and your wonderful staff for making our wedding day so memorable and amazing.
Ciara & Cathair Kerr :) 22/03/14

Sarah & CraigWe had our wedding at Harvey’s point on the 16th May 2014 and from the first day we met with Samantha right up until our wedding we couldn’t have wished for a better service.
The whole team were so friendly and helpful and couldn’t do enough to make sure our day went smoothly. The hotel was beautiful and all the guests are still talking about the wonderful food. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a wedding venue or for any other special occasion. 5 stars all around.

Cherie & MattWe had the most amazing wedding day on the 30th May 2014 at Harvey’s Point. From the moment we arrived at Harvey’s to look around we fell in love with the place. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly and the setting is just stunning. Over the course of planning the wedding, Sam was fantastic! And of course the day itself, everything was done to perfection! I would highly recommend Harvey’s Point as a top wedding venue.

Cherie & Matt 30/5/14


 

Joanne & PatrickThank you so much to Harvey’s point especially Samantha, Heidi and Sara for an absolutely fantastic day. We had our wedding reception there on the 9 th of aug 2014. Such professionalism and the quality of food was top class. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and hadn’t a thing to worry about. We would whole heartedly recommend Harvey’s point as a wedding venue . Well done folks

Joanne & Patrick 9/8/14


The staff in Harvey’s Point were a dream to work with. They made our whole wedding experience an enjoyable and stress less one. They looked after us from start to finish and nothing was any bother for them. They are experts at creating the perfect wedding day and make you feel very special as the bride and groom. Their bedrooms and food are exceptional. All our guests raved about both and we still hear them a year later talking about the hotel. Harvey’s Point is a wonderful place with an exceptional, professional and friendly staff.

Lisa & GaryMyself and my wife Lisa were married at Harveys Point on the 31st of May 2014 (A day we will never forget). Not only did the day go to plan, but exceeded all expectations!

Normally when people discuss a wedding, they always refer to the wedding day, but for us it was the entire experience of booking with harveys point. We booked with Sara and Samantha, and for day one, anything asked of them, they delivered. Absolutely incredible wedding co-ordinators.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were treated like royalty. Staff were extremely helpful and never showed signs of frustration or annoyance, regardless of what was asked of them. They were professional in all aspects of there Job.

We were lucky enough to get good weather on the day of the wedding, so the grounds of the hotel were exceptional. Our photographer (having been to Harveys before) did not want us stopping anywhere along the way for photos, he wanted to make the most of Harveys grounds and Bridal Suite. Needless to say, the photos were fantastic.

The Bridal suite was unbelievable. A large four poster bed and a room that could pass for a small house. My only regret is that we didn’t stay longer than the one night.

The food on the day was fantastic and the service was second to none. We had alot of our guests telling us about the hotel, its normally the first thing the mention about the wedding.
There was not one aspect of our wedding day that we would change. It is true what they say about never forgetting your special day, and for us, Harveys point played a massive part.

Best day of my like, not only did i marry my beautiful wife Lisa, but also had the dream wedding in the dream location.

Lisa & Gary 31/5/14

Rose & DenisHaving my wedding reception here on Sept.6th 2014 & there is nowhere better to celebrate in my opinion. I worked here as a teenager on school holidays when it first opened & I enjoyed every second of it and have very fond memories. I also live near by.
The staff are second to none & they have everything down to a fine T.
Food is outstanding not to mention service.
Samantha is an amazing wedding co-ordinator, no problem too big or too small.
Could not recommend this place or their staff enough, you won’t be disappointed

Naomi & BryanIf you are thinking about booking Harvey’s Point, don’t think anymore- just book it! From our initial meeting with the staff at hotel, right through every aspect of our wedding and including the day itself was a great experience. The staff are so professional and go above and beyond what is expected to make the most important day of your life special. The hotel setting and atmosphere is amazing and the rooms are fantastic- the penthouse has to be seen to be believed! Harvey’s Point and it’s staff are truly wonderful and it is such a remarkable wedding venue!

Pamela & KevinThe Harvey’s Point team, must have invented the extra mile and beyond. This finely tuned machine, delivers excellence right from the onset ,on viewing the venue, menu options right through to the night before the wedding, when we arrived with items for the tables – we were given yellow post its to mark where we want things set out -and that was that everything was set out to perfection for us. On the day of the wedding -Harvey’s was the perfect host to us and to our family and guests. The food, service and courtesy extended to us was faultless, not to mention the size of the extraordinary bridal sweet, beautifully appointed with a bar, and Beautiful bathroom, which resulted in us taking tours up for viewing the next day! The guests are still raving about the size of their bedrooms too! So we can’t sing the praises high enough of Harvey’s point and the team, Sarah, Samantha, Noel and all of the fab team for really making our day so special

 

Pamela & Kevin O Malley 27/12/13


My new wife and I got married in the beautiful Harvey’s Point on the 5th of October. We looked at a few venues but once we arrived at Harvey’s Point , with the smell of turf on the open fire and the beautiful location by the lake etc., we knew this was the place for us. The staff were fantastic from start to finish, Sara and Samantha and all the staff went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly and made our day a total success and we thank you all for that. We were blessed with sunshine on our day which gave us the opportunity to have photos by the lake. We were under no pressure as the staff looked after everything. The meal was fantastic, and Noel the character that he is gave our guests a laugh or three with his infectious personality.

Nicola & Kevin MaguireMyself and my husband had our wedding reception in Harvey’s Point in June 2013. I can honestly say that there was nothing that was a problem for the staff, in particular Sara, who catered to our every whim and was able to answer all of our questions, even at the last minute. The service that we got on the day was second to none, and all of our guests commented on the courtesy and politeness of the staff and the quality of the food, for wedding venue, I only wish I could do it all again tomorrow!

 

Nicola & Kevin Maguire


Our wedding reception in Harvey’s Point was the most incredible day we have both ever had! It was perfect & more than we had imagined from start to finish. Each of our guests commented on the excellent standard of food, service & accommodation. Many of our guests came from Australia & they were blown away by the hospitality & quality of the staff at Harvey’s Point. Each staff member went above & beyond our expectations to ensure we all had a memorable day. In particular, we would like to thank Sara & Samantha for their patience, reassurance & care, we are truly grateful. A fantastic day celebrated at a wonderful venue.

Teresa & CiaranWe had a 2013 Christmas wedding at Harveys Point and i cannot stress enough how good this hotel really is. Harveys Point is just a magical hotel to get married at and all staff are all so helpful and friendly. Sara and Samantha were so professional and could not do enough to make our wedding day very special. We had a drinks reception before the meal ina small bar overlooking the lake and this really showed off the fantastic views of the area. The meal was excellent and guests were just amazed at the selection. The hotel bedrooms are fabulous and the best i have ever stayed in. I cannot wait to attend a wedding again in Harveys. Best hotel defo 5+

 

Teresa & Ciaran Doherty 21/12/2013


Emer & PhilipFront start to finish, our wedding day could not be faulted and Harvey’s Point played a huge role in this. Our guests couldn’t stop talking about how good the hotel, location, staff, service and food were! One of our guests even thought she’d be upgraded when she saw the size of her ‘suite’. Sara and Samantha were always onhand to answer any of our pre-wedding queries, and Paul made sure the day stayed on track. One of the highlights for us was the quiet drink we had in the bar before being introduced into the dining room. Really special moment and a lovely touch. The bridal suite will take your breath away. I think we lost each other a couple of times during our stay! Another lovely touch is being able to sit with your guests at breakfast the following morning at the big round table – a great way to disect the day/night before. We can’t recommend Harvey’s Point highly enough…..the perfect locationfor your wedding. Many thanks to all the staff for helping to make our day so special.

 

Philip & Emer


Roisin & Peter 1We got married in Harvey’s Point in June past. Honestly we both cannot speak highly enough of Harvey’s Point, from the venue to the staff, food and general ambiance at Harvey’s Point. We had guests from a variety of countries and everyone who attended spoke so highly of Harvey’s Point and it made our day so special. From the initial planning of the wedding, right down to the day you will find that the staff are very helpful, friendly, accommodating and approachable. We asked for a few special things to incorporate and this was no problem. We also had luck on our side in that the sun shone very brightly that day and it was lovely as the guests could go outside by the lake which was also so handy for taking photographs so you are not away from your guests for too long. The dining hall is so lovely in that you can see the natural Irish landscape, the mountains and Lough Eske nearby, and the general ambiance is lovely in the room. Generally I do not give reviews unless I feel very strongly about something. We cannot fault Harvey’s Point and we look forward to returning there shortly as it has special memories for us both. We are so glad we chose Harvey’s Point and would say to any couple who are looking, you will not be disappointed if you chose this hotel. I still have guests telling me how much they enjoyed the hotel from the beautiful food, the desert buffet to the massive luxury bedrooms. I truly would say having been to a number of weddings, and without bias, Harvey’s Point stands out and is in a league of its own. Once again thanks to all the team who made our day so special and thanks for all your help and kind sentiments. We are so glad we chose Harvey’s Point.

 

Roisin and Peter.


Our wedding was on the 30th august this year, we honestly could not have had a better day. Samantha was very professional yet still extremely friendly and warm, like all the staff at harveys. As soon as you walk in you feel like your at home with a touch of pure luxury. The setting is perfect with the picturesque lake and family of swans who also love harveys! There is such a warmth, friendliness and yet efficiency which I think makes Harveys stand out. The head chef was super friendly and spoke to us on an individual basis, which is very unique! The food and service were exceptional in every way from the great flavours and steaks done to perfection to the waiters impressive ‘show’. All of our gusets keep telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Harveys is definately at least two steps above all the competition and we couldn’t recommend it high enough.
