 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.  

Mairead & James Adams – 30th August 2012
 Exceeded all expectations - and we had high expectations! Our entire experience with Samantha and Harvey's Point was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble, our every request was granted and all the little things which are important to a bride were perfectly executed. Our guests (many from overseas) all commented on the quality of the food, accommodation and service. We were delighted that their experience of Harvey's Point was just as positive as ours. Fiona Dunlevy & David Shanahan 12th May 2012  

Fiona & David Shanahan – 12th May 2012
 Firstly I would like to thank Sara and all the staff for making May 11th the most memorable and happiest weekends of our lives. From the day we first came to look at Harveys Point (and fell in love with it) you were nothing short of amazing. We thought because of the distance it was going to be so hard to organise and sort out but we really had nothing to worry about 

Lorraine & Neil Mckenny – 11th May 2012
 We held our Wedding on Sat 5th May 2012 in Harveys Point Hotel, and could not have picked a more amazing hotel for our special day. From the moment we booked an appointment with Samantha to view the hotel, until the day itself, the hotel had been brilliant in helping the day to be so special and to run as smoothly as it did for us, our families and all of our guests. Samantha was our Wedding Co-ordinator from start to finish, and we could not have asked for better. She was absolutely brilliant and so easy to work with. Nothing was a problem, and she very accommodating in relation to anything that we asked for, and we were in constant communication right up to the wedding. Our guests are still raving about the food, the staff and the hotel, many of whom had never visited and I’m sure will definitely again. My brother and his Fiancé are having their wedding in Harveys Point in July 2013 and we can’t wait to go back! Patricia & Kevin McElroy  

Patricia & Kevin McElroy – 5th May 2012
 ‘We got married on the 31st March 2012. We had such a special day. The grounds of Harvey’s Point made ideal photos for our wedding album. Our guests were totally blown away by the spectacular views! We were treated like royalty by all the staff, especially Samantha our wedding co-ordinator. She made the whole day run seamlessly. Thank you for a day we will never forget’ 

Sandra & Mark Neilan – 31st March 2012
 I am from and live in NYC and have watched a good amount of my friends get married in the last few years. I know prices I've watched the top of the line venues and suppliers from over here in NY and was worried sick when my fiance and I finally picked our destination as Harveys Point in Donegal (because of all our family in Ireland) I knew the price was extremely good for the 5 star service that Everyone was on about. Then we showed up for a tour with Samantha about 6 months before the big day and I was blown away. First off Samantha from Harveys Point answered all my (millions) questions and worries I had every day. She would point me the right way and try to help organize me as I would be very scattered with my ideas and understanding of suppliers ( as I knew nothing about Donegal Town or any surrounding areas). When the week finally came we met up a few days earlier and there was no push for money and she even looked after so many things financially, just so we had no worries. I had all these things I have seen at weddings that made me want to do them myslef and she literally helped me with them all! like the day before the wedding making welcome bags and printing up local attractions for my 90 Amercians plus 100 other Irish that most had never even been to Donegal that were over for our big day. She made sure to help with all that. There was a stress that took over me the week of my wedding that I never thought would get a handle of me and with Samatha's calm and confident attitude I would not of been ok, at all!! She knew that we loved food! and she made sure to look after with us regards the food. My husband and I are in the industry ( we run 2 bars in NYC ) and I always thought our downfall with a venue was that we would find something wrong and not be impressed with the party thrown for us, because we literally throw the best parties in I rish bars all year long as our living.. Point is we were blown away as well as my 190 guest I could not have asked for Anything different! I do know that I would not have had as amazing of a wedding day (week) if it weren't for Samantha's relaxed and organized ways. Theres not enough thank yous 

Katrina & Michael McNamee – 20th September 2012
 We would like to take this opportunity to thank Samantha for everything she did for us and for making our Wedding Day so special. From the moment we booked our wedding with Samantha I can honestly say that the service we received during every visit, email and telephone conversation was outstanding. Samantha's knowledge and expert advice meant that we were able to leave the planning of the wedding reception completely up to her. Our guests commented on how attentive she was on the day and we will cherish the memories forever. Thanks again for everything Jane & Troy 9th April 2012 

Jane & Troy Deeney – 9th April 2012
 Harvey's Point is truely exceptional. The professionalism, courtesy and outstanding service shown to us from the moment we booked our wedding, to the day of departure following our amazing weekend was superb. We would just like to thank most sincerely: Samantha for all her assistance in the run up to the wedding (and dealing with so many last minute requests in such a professional way!); Paul, who looked after us so well on the day itself and really ensured we didn't need to worry about anything at all; and the entire team at Harvey's who did so much for us, and our guests. We have had so much positive feedback, commenting on the location, service and the wedding meal - everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I think that anyone would struggle to find a better hotel, or service, anywhere in the country. We are now looking forward to coming back and celebrating our first anniversary with you... Thanks so much for everything! Claire and Kevin 20th April 2012 

Claire & Kevin Christie – 20th April 2012
 We got married in Harvey's Point on the 28th July 2011. We had the most amazing day ever and that was hugely down to the staff at the hotel. A special thanks has to go out to Samantha...our amazing co-ordinator and Paul who ran our day to perfection! He truly is a master of ceremonies! Every one of our guests commented on the friendliness and professionalism of all staff. The food was outstanding and the service to match. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they turned all our dreams into a reality. I wish we could do it all over again...I wouldn't change a thing! Paul created such a wonderful atmosphere throughout the day and everything ran smoothly. You have given us such wonderful memories. Thank you all. x 

Rachael & Jonathan Ronan – 28th July 2011
 We had a fabulous day, everything ran faultlessly. We could not have asked for a better day. Staff were amazing and looked after not only our needs but that of our guests. Food was never ending and people are still talking about the day. As we had guests from every corner of the globe it showed Ireland off at its best with that unique Irish charm and the setting is breathtaking. As we live in Australia, planning a wedding overseas can be very difficult. We felt like royalty for the whole day. Just wanted to say thanks again to everyone. The staff are brilliant and really made our day. 

Yoala & Darren Maxwell – 2nd May 2011
 Our wedding at Harvey’s Point was exceptional. From the time our guests arrived on 15th April the service we received all weekend was outstanding. The day itself went so smoothly and we really felt we were in capable hands and we didn’t have to worry about anything. The food was amazing, the quality, the variety and the overall presentation. 80% of the wedding guests are not from Donegal and had never been to Harvey’s Point before. The feedback we received from them over the last few weeks has been extremely positive, with many of them pledging to return to the hotel for a break in the near future. The staff at Harvey’s are what differentiates the experience from other venues. We really felt we were in the hands of professionals who know their business inside-out, and this comfort was ultimately what allowed us to enjoy our day so much. We owe sincere thanks to Samantha, Jonathan and Paul, and indeed all the staff at Harvey’s Point who made our wedding so special for us and enjoyable for our guests.  

Carol & Rory Meehan – 15th April 2011
 Myself and Mícheál are so grateful to all at Harvey’s Point for all the help and support we received over the past year in the lead up to our wedding day on the 9th of April last. Everyone was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and looked after all our needs so well. We had an absolute ball. The reception was perfect and we were delighted with everything, from the sumptuous food, the ambience, the décor, the excellent accommodation and the service was second to none, the sun even came out and we got amazing photos taken by the lake. It was the most wonderful day; I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you so so much, we truly had the wedding of our dreams.  

Deirdre & Michael O'Domhnaill – 9th April 2011
 Our wedding at Harvey's Point exceeded all our expectations. The day went so smoothly. Everyone commented on the beautiful venue, stunning food and very attentive staff.  

Grainne & Neil Campbell – 2nd October 2010
 Our Wedding was fantastic. We were treated extremely well during the day and have received nothing but good reports from all our guests since. It is an ideal venue with a lovely setting.  

Gillian & David Murtagh – 18th September 2010
 We had the most amazing experience having our wedding at Harvey's Point. The whole experience from our first visit, directly after getting engaged, to our wedding day 51 weeks later could not have been any better. The setting of Harvey's Point with Lough Eske in the background is amazing. The team at HP are so helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We were treated so magnificently by everyone at the hotel. The planning phase seemed so straightforward but yet you covered every little detail without us realising it. The atmosphere that you try to create in the reception room is perfect and makes the bride and groom feel very special. We will be coming back to visit over and over again and our families will be as it is such a special experience.  

Jenny & Mike Kingston – 16th October 2010
 We had an absolutely fabulous day at Harvey's Point, we couldn't have hoped for a more beautiful or unique venue. We were treated like royalty from the moment arrived with even the smallest of details being catered for. The staff were extremely professional and helpful, without being intrusive, with their Irish charm and witt making our guests feel extremely welcome. The wedding co-ordinators made planning the day an exciting and hassle free event, even through we were based in England.  

Donna & Richard Harris – 13th November 2010
 Everything was first class - we were so well looked after at every stage - from enquiry, right up to the wedding day itself. Harvey's Point is a thoroughly professional establishment, complimented by excellent service & food. We'd thoroughly recommend it for the wow factor!! 

Lynne & Emlyn Hughes – 11th September 2010
 Harvey's Point was the most incredible venue and we had the best day of our lives. The Staff made us feel special and attended to our every need. The food was stunning and the whole day was a day us and our guests will never forget, many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Staff, were only concerned with making our day unique and everyone put us at ease. The presentation of deserts was simply breathtaking. 

Catherine & Alan Close – 16th September 2010
 On a scale of 1 being horrendous to 10 being the happiest day of our lives it has to be a 10. It was an absolutely amazing day and given what the weather was like it was a day to behold. Harvey's point as a wedding venue was for us the ultimate experience. The ultra professional manner of the management team to the location on the edge of Lough Eske, to the warm and very friendly welcome topped off with the excellent food delivered by an absolutely first class dining service. This we feel made it the day that it was, as all our guests spoke to us about the experience in that they had never witnessed anything like it.  

Laura & Brian Crossan – 3rd December 2010
 Our wedding at Harvey's Point was first class. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would like to thank Harvey's Point for their professionalism, great service and attention to detail during the planning and preparation for our wedding and on the day itself. Harvey's Point were impeccable. Everything from the minute we arrived on the grounds of Harvey's Point to the minute we left was superb. The service was excellent, the food incredible and the staff were there to await our every need. We have already recommended Harvey's Point to our friends as an excellent place to host a wedding. I could not recommend Harvey's Point enough. Many of our guests rated the wedding as the best wedding they were ever at. Keep up the fantastic work and thank you so much for making our day so special.  

Mary T & Paul Dillon – 23rd October 2010
 We had an amazing day it couldn’t have been any better. The food was amazing and the staff were excellent . 

Fiona & Dermot Curristin – 22nd October 2010
 We enjoyed our wedding reception very much. From the entrance, facilitation of special requests, service for bride + groom inc a quiet moment+ complimentary drinks, venue presentation, banquet,wedding cake+ drinks service+ presentation to the lavish accomodation- the whole experience was stunning and breath taking.  

Conagh & Robbie McCann – 10th July 2010
 We would like to say a special thank you for making, not only our wedding day, but our whole visit so very enjoyable, special and memorable. We and our guests had such an amazing time. Your service, food and ambience was impeccable and so very relaxing and enjoyable. The room on the day of the wedding was magical and everything i dreamed off.  

Rosalind & Niall Friel – 29th December 2010
 We found the whole experience to be flawless. We loved the way Harveys Point did things a little different than other venues. The buffet starter and dessert with a vast array of choice and quality to match. We cant imagine anywhere coming close to Harvey's Point. We've been to alot of weddings and frankly, nobody does it better. What stood out for us was the manner in which all staff carried themselves. Extremely courteous and friendly. Completely professional. Organised to perfection. Our guests still rave about the hotel, its idyllic setting, the wow factor of the bedrooms and their sheer size, the service, the food and how impressive the gourmet suite was.  

Helen & Damian Daly – 15th July 2010
 We enjoyed our day enormously. A lot of our guests had never been to Harvey's Point before and said they would definitely return. The service, staff, setting, food and rooms were all excellent. The attention to detail was first class, which meant we could relax and enjoy our special day. Everything was handled in a very professional manner and exceeded our expectations. 

Ann & Rory Quigley – 21st August 2010
 The venue is idyllically located, the hospitality is second-to-none and the food is still being talked about and compared at every wedding we have been to since - amazing! 

Michele & Dermot O'Neill – 3rd June 2010
 First class from the moment we booked right through to the wedding day we received the best service. We both loved the service & the way we were treated on the day itself. The individual waiter service for the top table was very professional & of the highest standard. 

Mary & Cathal Gavin – 7th August 2010
 Our wedding was the best day of our lives and it was made even more special by the wonderful venue at Harvey's Point. Everything from the accommodation to the service and food was of the highest quality. Harvey's Point is the best Hotel we have ever stayed in and all our guests concurred. Everyone was in awe of its' gorgeous surroundings and fabulous decor. The staff made us feel so welcome and very special and were very attentive to our needs throughout the whole day. 

Lisa & Sean McDermott – 29th May 2010
 We thoroughly enjoyed our day and so did all of our guests. It exceeded our expectations! We would rate Harvey's Point 10/10. As a wedding reception it was out of this world. Harvey's Point took care of everything. The staff were amazing. Their professionalism and attention to detail was outstanding. They made the day memorable and extra special.  

Paula & Gerard McGlinchey – 16th June 2010
 I would highly recommend Harvey's Point, we had so many guests who said that they have never experienced a reception like ours due mainly to the service and food we received. The ballroom was beautiful and the staff gave us excellent service throughout the entire evening. The day was fantastic, there was not one thing that we could fault Harvey's Point for. 

Sabrina & Dane Bayley – 27th August 2010
 We had an amazing time at Harvey's Point, everything went so smoothly and we never had any worries throughout the whole day (so well looked after from the moment we arrived). The food was fantastic, so much so that all our guests are still raving about it. The room looked amazing and the attention to detail was superb; especially the silver service at the main table, incredible. Great venue and we are so glad we choose Harvey's Point to celebrate our day. Wouldn't change a thing, you can't improve on perfection!!  

Samantha & Stewart Graham – 20th August 2010
 We had the most amazing day ever, exceeding all our expectations. I can't imagine anywhere being able to better Harvey's Point, the venue, service, food, planning and after care were all top class, nothing was a problem for the staff and every request was met. All of our guests have raved about the venue since our big day.  

Alanna & Stephen Hughes – 12th August 2010
 We would like to thank all the staff at Harvey's Point for an unforgettable wedding day. I am the third member of my family to get married at the hotel since 2003 and they certainly lived up to their usual high standards. Harvey's went out of its way to make us feel very special. They achieved this by adding many thoughtful little touches throughout the day and created a wonderful, celebratory atmosphere with music and their unique presentation of the courses to the top table. The attention to detail, especially in dealing with special dietary requirements, was outstanding. A particular thank-you to Jonathan, Samantha, Paul and Diane who were so easy to deal with and ensured everything went perfectly on the day. Harvey's Point incorporates all the best aspects of Donegal - beautiful, dramatic scenery, excellent food and warm, friendly people. We will certainly be back many times to reminisce on our beautiful wedding day there! Many thanks, Noelle & Lloyd Brewer 

Noelle & Lloyd Brewer – 24th July 2010
 We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding at Harvey's Point. The wedding ran over two days and all our guests have commented on how fabulous a time they had. The food and staff were exceptional. We enjoyed our time so much that we actually stayed a third night with some of our family. If we were to start again I would still use Harvey's Point as the venue. I do not know of any other venue in Ireland that could compare with Harvey's Point. 

Orfhlaith & Harvey Byers – 17th July 2010
 We had the most perfect day, even better than we ever expected. Harveys Point staff were welcoming, professional, courteous and extremely helpful. From our first meeting with Jonathan Kelly we knew we were in safe hands. Everything was top Class in every respect The attention to detail is first class. We cannot rate the venue highly enough. You made our day extra special in every way and we loved every minute. Thank you so much. 

Kathy & Seamus Donnelly – 30th June 2010
 We had a wonderful wedding day at Harveys. Everything we had dreamed of and planned went according to plan. From the moment we arrived at Harveys point the staff, surroundings and food was amazing. We view Harveys point as the number 1 wedding venue in Northern Ireland/ Donegal. 

Caroline & Liam Doherty – 5th June 2010
 Our Wedding at Harvey's Point was everything we hoped for and much more. Wish we could do it all again and couldn't rate it highly enough, everything was perfect, the staff, food, amazing location and bedrooms! I haven't stopped recommending it to people since! A lot of our guests travelled from outside Donegal and many of them had heard of Harveys Point before but couldn't quite believe how fantastic it is. One comment in particular I heard was "It was the closest thing to royalty I've ever seen"!!!  

Sheila & Gary Conlon – 9th July 2010
 Harvey's Point is absolutely superb. The management and staff are so accommodating and friendly. On the day of the wedding, their sheer professionalism and attention to detail blew me away. All the guests were very impressed with the quality and variety of the banquet (as the nervous bride I wasn't able to eat a thing, I'm afraid!). To sum up, the reputation of Harvey's Point precedes it but, on the day of the wedding, Harveys Point exceeded its own reputation. From the perspective of Harvey's Point, I genuinely cannot think of anything which the hotel could do to improve its service. 

Laura & James Rowley – 31st July 2010
 It was the best day of my life. The food, service, staff and all the little touches were excellent. Loved the sparklers and the music that was played at key moments during the day. I as a bride didn't have to worry about anything. Jonathan & Samantha made my day so relaxed, and Both were a wonderful help on any questions or queries I had on the run up to my big day.  

Martina & Joseph Doohan – 24th July 2010
 We would like to thank everyone at Harvey's Point for making our day so special. All our guests have commented on how great all the staff were and how they made everyone feel so welcome. They have all said it was the best wedding they have ever been to and it will be hard to top Harveys Point. The attention to detail through out the whole day was excellent. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We had the most perfect day ever. We could not fault a thing! It really was the best day ever! Thank you for giving us such a perfect day.  

Louise & David Mason – 8th May 2010
 To all who helped with the organization of our wedding on Friday 23rd July in the Dome Suite, and to those who worked on the day of our wedding, Colm and I would like to extend a huge thank you. We had a great day in Harvey's, as did all our guests. Paul Mahon and Diane were so professional and also delightful. From the run up to the civil ceremony right to the very end of the night they were on hand to help with everything and so obliging. The civil ceremony was well catered for, the patio was amazing for the drinks with the scenery so beautiful, and the food, a huge success (everyone is still raving about it). The extra work involved in catering for the team of entertainers for the evening was hugely appreciated by us and the whole thing was a blast. I would recommend Harvey's to everyone and we can't wait to return for our next stay.  

Helen & Colm Daly – 23rd July 2010
 It was amazing, more than we could have wished for. We couldn't have chosen a better venue, the surroundings, the staff, the service and food were all outstanding. Even the sun was shining for us. We can't wait to return. Everything was perfect, considering we organised it from based in Manchester I couldn't believe how smoothly everything went on the day. From the moment we arrived right through to our departure the staff and service was first class. Every guest thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I'm sure a few will be returning!! Thank you all at Harvey's Point for making our day so special.  

Sheila & Rob Kelly – 9th April 2010
 The staff at Harvey's Point made our day so special. You gave us fond memories of 24th October 2009. Thank you for the wonderful hard work that all of you put in to make our day so special. Warm appreciation, Roisin & James. 

Roisin & James Keating – 24th October 2009
 Thank you for making our Wedding Day so special and relaxed....totally hassle free! We are yet to find a Hotel with more friendly and professional staff. You attention to details is second to none. Thanks again, Aileen & James 

Aileen & James McCauley – 7th June 2010
 We both thouroughly enjoyed the day as it was so well run and organised by yourselves. We really appreciate everything you & the guys done to make the day so special for us! It was so good to hear our guests come away stating they never experienced anything like it and had only great things to say about Harveys Point. Thanks so much again for making the day so relaxed for us & making it so memorable for us both! Kind Regards Siobhan & Barry  

Siobhan & Barry Burke – 7th May 2010
 We had the best day of our lives and a lot of that was due to the fantastic service at Harvey's Point. We were blesses with sunshine and the scenery surrounding the hotel made the photos look stunning. All our guests commented on the remarkable quality of the food and the general atomosphere of the Hotel. Guests staying in the Hotel have vowed to return they were so impressed with the rooms. 

Martina & Damien Dodrill – 12th June 2009
 Everything was just excellent, we had an excellent day and we thank you for your hospitality. 

Kerri & Eoin Lanigan – 25th June 2009
 Thank you for helping to make our Wedding a special day. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed it-most said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We particularly liked the amount of time allowed between each course. It wasn't rushed and very relaxed. It gave us time to mingle with our guests but also enjoy the food and this was important as the food was superb.  

Philomena & Sanjay Vijayanathan – 2nd May 2009
 The staff were exceptional, professional and so accommodating. I very felt proud to be a Donegal person, to bring my extended family and friends from all over Ireland to this part of the world. Guests at our wedding have said they will definitely return to Harvey's Point for a weekend away, after the time they had at our wedding. We had a fantastic time, it was lovely to have the meet and greet service as we arrived at the Hotel, with Paul the banqueting manager, the head chef, head waiters, waitresses, you truly felt special. Jonathan was exceptional as well as organising the initial wedding coordination's way back in 2008-excellent at communicating via telephone and providing updates. We will always have a connection at Harvey's Point. 

Breda & John Moloney – 1st May 2009
 We had a brilliant day at Harvey's Point. We would definitely reccomend it to anyone thinking of getting married. If we were to do it all over again at Harvey's, we would change nothing, as it was just perfect.  

Joanne & John ONeill – 26th June 2009
