HARVEY’S POINT HOTEL has been named ‘No 1 Hotel in Ireland’ by TripAdvisor for the fifth year in a row.

The hotel review website revealed its 2017 ‘Travellers Choice’ Awards on its website this morning.

These were the top five Irish hotels listed:

  1. Harvey’s Point
  2. Ashford Castle

The Lough Eske hotel also ranked ‘No 1 Hotel in Ireland’ for service and 2nd in Ireland for ‘Romance’. Harvey’s Point hotelier Deirdre McGlone said she was ‘over the moon’ with the news.


“Words can hardly express the excitement that we feel, having won No. 1 Hotel in Ireland on TripAdvisor for the fifth year in a row.

This award belongs to our dedicated team, each of whom play their part in the Harvey’s Point success story. Our heartfelt thanks to our many guests who wrote so favourably of their experiences at Harvey’s Point.

One of the many reviews of the hotel featured on the TripAdvisor said:

The concierge opened our room door and said ‘Welcome to heaven,’ and he wasn’t wrong!

McGlone added, “We are immensely proud of this great achievement which encourages us to raise the bar even higher in delivering the highest possible standards of hotel-keeping and hospitality.”
