Review on Harvey's Point Country Hotel

Just a short drive outside Donegal town, this fascinating country hotel was originally designed to resemble a chalet from the proprietor's native Switzerland. It has been developed over the years, but some quirky Alpine features still remain. Nothing has changed as regards the dreamy setting, with wooded grounds reaching down to the shores of Lough Eske at the foot of the Blue Stack mountains.

The kitchen deals in European cooking based around supplies ranging from Donegal Bay oysters to Cashel Blue cheese. Typical offerings might be gravlax of Atlantic salmon with poached egg and mustard sauce, cider-roasted shank of Donegal lamb with butter beans and polenta, and desserts ranging from orange parfait with marinated oranges to bread-and-butter pudding with Irish Mist sauce. The wine list is tilted heavily towards France.

Every Wednesday and Friday, the hotel stages special evenings of 'Celtic Harmonies' – programmes of music, entertainment and food inspired by the cuisines of Ireland, Scotland, Brittany, Normandy and Galicia. The Sunday lunch carvery is a veritable family feast that packs in the crowds.
