We celebrated our wedding at Harvey's Point in July this year. Both the ceremony and the reception were held there. We had stayed before at the hotel and given the excellent quality of those experiences, we were confident that we were leaving the responsibilty for the day in good hands and our expectations were fairly high. However, nothing could prepare us for the quality of care and attention that we received, it far exceeded anything we could've imagined. From the start, in all of our dealings with Samantha and her team and in the preparations for the day, we were treated in a first-class fashion. No request, no query, was a problem and the attention to detail was fantastic. In the build up to the day Samantha brought us through all the preparations and accomodated any request made. On the day, the room for the ceremony was prepared and presented exquisitely. After the ceremony the guests were attended to superbly and able to relax in the surrounds of the oval bar. Then it was on to the meal. Again the room was beautifully prepared. The MC, Noel, set the tone for the party at this point with his wonderful introductions which got everyone up on their feet again. We were all treated to a fantastic meal. The food at Harvey's was always fantastic, but I can tell you that the food at a wedding there is equally as good. The quality and range offered was amazing. Our guests were very keen to tell us this. From the soup, through the multitude of starters to the main meal (which was superb) and on to the collection of desserts. Though lots of guests failed to make it through to the desserts, simply having no room for them...!! Afterwards the room was then transformed seemlessly for the dancing, without anyone practically noticing. There were lots of little surprises along the way, which I'll not disclose so as not to ruin it for any future couples, but everyone in the room was treated fantastically throughout the day. We always knew the setting was superb. Our guests who stayed overnight and had not been to Harvey's before, were amazed at the size and quality of the rooms. It is an idyllic spot and is a place that always reflects calm and contentment, but let me tell you Harvey's can also do party and celebration. From the off, Samantha and Noel were able to engage with our guests in a way that generated an atmosphere of celebration which continued throughout the day. They were perfect hosts, not in a superficial manner either. Noel greeted guests on arrival, engaged throughout the day with everyone and was even present at breakfast the next morning to catch up again!! Samantha too was on hand to attend to any need of the wedding party and was able to keep us right on what was happening and when. In fact all of the staff at Harvey's deserve tremendous credit. They have that knack of being there when you need them but otherwise they totally blend into the background. It is genuinely hard to truly put into words how superb Harvey's Point was for a celebration such as this. Everything (and I mean everything) ran like clockwork. They take the stress out of the day that is for sure. Simply put, they are masters of their art. We cannot thank enough Samantha and all her team, Noel and his team, indeed all at Harvey's Point for hosting our day in such a five-star fashion. Is there is a better hotel in Ireland? I seriously doubt it. If anyone is considering booking Harvey's for their wedding - our advice - DO IT..!! You will not be disappointed. Sean and Rhonda.
