'Words can hardly express the excitement and delight'

Donegal hotelier Deirdre McGlone and the team at Harvey’s Point are on a high after regaining their top place on the list of Ireland’s Top Hotels.

The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice yesterday reinstated Harvey’s Point to the coveted top spot they held for five consecutive years from 2013 to 2017. After ranking No. 2 in 2017, it is a remarkable achievement for Harvey’s Point to return to the number one position once again.

The luxury Lough Eske hotel also won #12 Best Hotel in Europe, #2 for Romance in Ireland and #5 for Best in Service.

“Words can hardly express the excitement and delight that we feel, having won No. 1 Hotel in Ireland on TripAdvisor for 2019,” said Hotel director Deirdre McGlone.

Deirdre credited the awards to the hotel’s dedicated team, each of whom plays their part in the Harvey’s Point success story.

She expressed the hotel management’s heartfelt thanks to their many guests who wrote so favourably of their experiences at Harvey’s Point.

“We are immensely proud of this great achievement, which encourages us to raise the bar even higher in delivering the highest possible standards of world class hotel-keeping blended with genuine Irish hospitality,” she added.
