Although along 5km of narrow twisty road, we were rewarded with 2 red squirrels and a Robin who joined us for coffee and biscuits on the patio overlooking lough eske. Beautiful in the sun. The large round bar area had a lovely...

Harvey’s Point receives rave reviews everywhere. So, either we are too picky or perhaps just unappreciative of what it has to offer. Wonderful scenery in abundance and an idyllic setting for sure, but after that it leaves much to be desired. We seem to be the only ones who do not find this place wonderful. Frankly, if it was not...
