Harvey's Point Country Hotel Review

Set in a remote and breathtaking location in landscaped gardens on the shores of Lough Eske at the foot of the Blue Stack Mountains, Harvey's Point has, since 1989, been a spirit-lifting escape. The drive to the Gysling family's hotel is awe-inspiring in itself and your surprise is complete when the elegant edifice looms up along the shores of the lake. Reception areas gleam with cherrywood and polished stone and flaunt great views. The Irish-with-a-French-flair restaurant has winning dishes such as roast Emyvale duckling with butternut squash and passion-fruit puree. Even if your itinerary prevents you from overnighting, it is well worth dropping in for the Sunday carvery lunch, a buffet that has become justly famous and costs €29. The cozier Wine Bar and Lounge serves weekend snacks and drinks.
