What can I say from start to finish Harvey's point cannot be commended enough! From we first met Michael & Samantha they couldn't do enough for us. On our wedding day, the service we received was just phenomenal. The food & drinks were delicious. I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel! If I could give more than 10*’s I would!

We recently got married in the stunning Harvey’s Point on 17th September 2020, after having to postpone from 29th May 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
To begin, the wedding coordinators (Samantha & Michéal) at Harvey’s Point are fantastic, extremely professional, helpful, friendly and a good laugh. The wedding coordinators are supported by a fantastic team, each of the team knows their role and do it without fault.
Both Samantha & Michéal were excellent in helping rearrange the wedding and keeping us informed of all the government guidelines, which were constantly changing at that time. Nothing was an issue for them to find out or sort out.
On the wedding day itself, it was perfect. The sun was shining (the only thing Samantha & Michéal can’t control) and both the ceremony room and ballroom were beautifully set up and decorated. Michéal was in charge for the day and he did a fantastic job, he looked after both of us so well, helped us keep any nerves limited and everything went off without a problem. Noel Also called in throughout the day to help out and have a chat.
The atmosphere was relaxed, the food and wine were amazing, with all the guests complimenting it. We also had the gin bar for the reception after the ceremony, which the guests loved. The surroundings of Harvey’s Point are beautiful and perfect location for unforgettable photographs. The hotel bedrooms are stunning and a real treat.
Although it wasn’t the wedding we had originally planned, we believe it was much better and highly recommend Harvey’s Point as the perfect wedding venue. All couples and their Guests will be well looked after by the Harvey’s Point team.

What can we say but a massive thank you to Harvey's Point and all the team, especially Samantha our wedding coordinator. From the first day we were shown around the beautiful hotel and ballroom, we knew this was the venue for us. what we didn't know was how much could change in a couple of months.
After a stressful year of planning with COVID-19 and being unsure what to do, with having to cut our guest list from 150 to under 50, the stress was on another level. However, Samantha and the team were amazing. Any worries went away when you spoke to them. My main concern was how a wedding of 50 would look in such a big and beautiful ballroom. What would the atmosphere be like and what would it be like to finish an Irish wedding at 11:30 pm?
All these worries and more didn't matter on the day. The day was no different to any other wedding we've attended. The 50 guests number was a blessing, we had the most important people with us on our day. We live-streamed it for family and friends who could not make it from England. As my husband is from Liverpool, I organised special messages from his family and friends on video and the hotel team helped play the video on their projector in the ballroom - such a lovely touch - it was a very emotional part of the day.
The ballroom was well planned out and didn't look empty with only 50 people. It was the complete opposite of what I was worried about. It showed off its beauty more with the views. The atmosphere was amazing - all our guests enjoyed themselves. Not forgetting the food - it was unbelievable and we still got our evening/night time food served before 11 pm.
We had such an amazing day. We didn't want it to end, but, secretly it was nice to finish at 11:30 pm as we had the feet well danced off us!
If anyone is in doubt, don't be. I would recommend Harvey's Point Hotel for the exceptional service they offer.
Everything was above and beyond for us the bride and groom and also for our guests.
Thanks to all the team in Harvey's Point.
Laura -Ann & Jonathan 14th March 2020
We celebrated our special day in the beautiful setting of Harvey's Point, and it was nothing short of amazing.
Samantha and Mícheál provided a 5-star service from when we first met, to the actual wedding day. They went above and beyond to make our day perfect and made sure that no stone was left unturned. They are brilliant at what they do and helped ease the stress of planning a wedding. We were extremely lucky to squeeze in our day right before the first lockdown in March in which Mícheál and Samantha kept us reassured and calm during the uncertainty leading up to the day. They and all the staff pulled out all the stops to make us and our guests feel extremely safe and relaxed. The accommodation, the food, the fabulous staff and the stunning views-everything was perfect, and our guests continue to rave about it all. We cannot thank Samantha and Mícheál enough for their professionalism, kindness, and attention to detail they provided us throughout the planning process. Harvey's Point will always hold a special place in our hearts, and we would highly recommend it as a wedding venue.
Thank you all so Much!!! Jonathan & Laura-Ann
Rachel & Shane 28th February 2020
We had our wedding in Harvey's Point on the 28th of February. We knew from our initial look around with MicheáL that we wouldn't find better - the location is stunning, the new ballroom is beautiful and very classic, but what really stood out was the service, there's a real comforting and homely feel to the venue and the staff were excellent- nothing was too big of an ask. Micheál and Samantha were a pleasure to deal with, their experience in arranging weddings was clear to see, they almost knew what we were looking for before we did ourselves! The food and accommodation at Harvey's are second to none, guests are still talking to us about the luxurious rooms and the dessert buffet went down a treat on the day! It's clear to see why Harvey's is so well rated when it comes to weddings - they have every aspect covered to a tee and truly made our day so special and stress-free. Thank you to Micheál, Samantha and all the team at Harvey's for such a special weekend - looking forward to returning soon to relive the memories!

Unbelievable Wedding Venue!
We had our wedding here on the 21st February 2020 and I can not praise Samantha, Michael, Noel and their staff enough. All the staff in every area of the hotel are so welcoming, friendly and so accommodating. Nothing is a problem. From the very start, everything in the planning was exceptional and made so easy and I really didn't think about the reception side of this too much during the wedding planning as I felt it was being completely taken care of and I was right to think so. The ballroom is beautiful and all our guests are still raving about the food which was both tasty and plentiful. Everything about the day was perfect and the staff couldn't do enough for us or our guests. With the recent refurbishment of the ballroom too, made all of our guests and our day even more special.
Thank you so much to Samantha, Michael & Noel and his team for looking after us in February.
You will not regret your decision to book your wedding in the beautiful setting of Harvey’s Point Hotel. They gave us the best day ever!!
Rebecca & Charlie, 30th August 2019
Our wedding reception was in Harvey's Point on 30th August and it is difficult to summarize in a review how amazing it was. This was all down to Samantha and Michael who are the most dedicated wedding coordinators but also great craic to be around and the nicest people you'd ever meet. From the moment we first spoke to Samantha, we relaxed about the wedding day, knowing we were in the safest of hands. Nothing was ever any trouble and they really go beyond the call of duty to make sure everything is perfect for you on your big day. Special thanks also extend to Alex, our waiter at the top table who is an absolute gentleman. The setting of the hotel is magical, food and service exceptional. There is so much to be said about it but most of all we want to say a big thank you to Samantha, Michael and team at Harvey's Point for giving us our dream wedding and more. We will never forget it and looking forward to returning to Harvey's Point for a stay to relive it. Rebecca and Charlie x

I got married at Harvey’s Point last month and I can’t recommend it enough. Samantha and Micheal were so easy to work with and were totally on top of everything I asked for. Nothing seemed a hassle for them, 2 lovely people which makes the wedding planning/day so much nicer. We came from Co.Armagh to Harvey’s Point and all my guests were so impressed by the service, food, views, rooms just everything was amazing. Martha was such an outstanding waitress, got us anything we wanted and the top table felt so comfortable with her all day. Of course, Noel and Eamonn are absolute gentlemen and the staff at Harvey’s Point really made our few days so special. Thank you to all the staff, you all really made us feel welcome. So many of my guests said it was the nicest hotel they’ve been to. We were definitely very impressed! It just such a relief that everything went so well and Harvey’s Point are definitely one of the main reason the day went so smoothly so Thank You!!

10 stars, One word - WOW!!
My husband and I got married at Harvey's Point on Saturday 31st August and we had the most amazing and most magical day ever! Harvey’s Point Hotel holds a very special place in both of our hearts. Our guests fell in love with it just as much as we have and have not stopped talking about it or the food - which is always first class!
Micheál our wedding coordinator, where do I even begin...you are the nicest man we have ever had the pleasure of meeting! Your attention to detail, friendliness and helpfulness is fantastic and nothing was ever any trouble to you! You kept me calm and organised everything behind the scenes just like I would have done myself but even better!
You were always there offering to help and even offered to feed our son....We had the best day ever and we cannot thank you enough for making that happen! You’re a legend and an absolute asset to the Harvey’s Point Hotel! Xx

Laura & Ger, 18th July 2019
Samantha! 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, The Rossi’s
Cormac & Natasha, 12th July 2019
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.
Emma & Anthony, 15th May 2019
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
James & Dale, 15th June 2019
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
Catherine & Gavin, 07.09.2018
We held our Wedding Reception in Harveys Point last September and my husband and I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough. I imagined planning our wedding would be stress from start to finish, but I had underestimated the amazing dynamic duo of Samantha and Micheál. Where do I even start?! Not one thing that we asked for was a bother, all our last minute changes were dealt with promptly and everything was done to the highest standard. The day before our wedding, Samantha and Micheál (with their trusty trolley) took everything we brought down and assured us it would all be taken care of. Imagine our relief knowing we handed over the running of our reception to two complete professionals who, along with their fantastic team, worked only with our happiness in mind.
Our wedding day was flawless; it far exceeded all expectations and all our guests fell in love with Harveys Point as much as we had. The food, the location, but most importantly the staff, made the best day of our lives simply perfect.
Our guests have raved about their rooms, the attention from staff and just how welcome we were all made to feel. Harveys Point made us feel so special and we cannot wait to come back and celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary. With warm thanks and sincere gratitude for facilitating our dream wedding, Catherine & Gavin Higgins xx
Alexander & Colm, 22nd February 2019
My Husband (Colm) and I had our wedding party at Harvey's Point on the 22nd February 2019. We had a wonderful time and all our guests really enjoyed themselves. Firstly, the Harvey's Point team were fantastic - very attentive, caring and great service. Specific names to mention a few: Noel Cunningham - the General manager was fantastic and joined in on the party making everyone laugh and very happy: The Guest Relations Manager - Eamon Gillespie - was very very helpful and attentive: Gavin the banqueting manager and his excellent team were also very special and looked after us well - with fantastic service and wonderful food. At the wedding top table, we were served and looked after by our special top table waiter - Aaron. Finally the wedding organisers- Samantha and Michael - were so caring and attentive and helped us with all the organisation and guest accommodation.
The wedding banquet was fantastic with and excellent choice and service.
Have been to many weddings in Donegal - but have to say that everyone rated Harvey's Point the very best. Wonderful wedding and fantastic service - nothing to fault at all - great place for a wedding!
Caroline & Noel, 30th March 2019
Am really not sure where to begin. Michael and Samantha are the ultimate dream team. There wasn't a question or request to small or big. They thought of things that you didn't even think about. And saying that, am sure there is a mountain of work they do behind the scenes that no one will ever know. Their attention to detail, from management to floor staff is fantastic.
Harveys point will forever hold a special place in our heart! Xx
