Donegal's most-loved hotel on TripAdvisor has been pipped to the top spot in Ireland for 2018.

After five years as Ireland’s No. 1 hotel, the Harvey’s Point team are celebrating the success of TripAdvisor’s new Travellers’ Choice winners – the Killarney Park Hotel.

The Travellers’ Choice 2018 list has today announced that the five star Killarney Park Hotel in Co. Kerry is Ireland’s Top Hotel for 2018. Harvey’s Point outside Donegal Town was ranked as number two out of the Top 25 list, which counts four hotels in Donegal among Ireland’s best.

The Harvey’s Point team gracefully congratulated the new No. 1 hotel with a toast to their achievement:

The Harvey’s Point success story shows no signs of stopping however, as the Lough Eske hotel was also celebrated as the 22nd Top Hotel in Europe for 2018, the 4th Top Hotel in Ireland for Service and the 5th Most Romantic Hotel.

Three other Donegal hotels received recognition on the Top 25 Ireland list, with the Villa Rose Hotel, Ballybofey at No. 9, the Shandon Hotel & Spa at No. 12 and Rathmullan House at No. 19.
