In the summer of 1989, Donegal native Deirdre McGlone began working as a receptionist in Harvey’s Point while on a break from university. Harvey’s Point was owned by Swiss-born brothers Jody and Marc Gysling.
Romance blossomed between Deirdre and Marc and they married in 1996. The couple bought the hotel and have run it together for the last 21 years.
Along with Jody, all three share a passion for hospitality, food and the rich heritage of Donegal. Over the years, the whole business model for Harvey’s Point has changed. Having opened with 20 bedrooms, a restaurant and a small team, the hotel has seen phenomenal growth over the years.
At present, the hotel contains 64 luxurious suites plus a newly opened 13 bedroom lodge. Rooms in the original building (opened in 1989) were recently renovated into 8 spacious suites, reducing the number of rooms slightly.
Harvey’s Point prides itself on its high quality of service and the personal attention to all its guests.
In January 2017, Harvey’s Point was voted Number One Hotel in Ireland in the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for the fifth successive year.
