Donegal's Harvey's Point has been named the top hotel in Ireland for 2019 in TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice Awards.

The family-run four-star hotel was voted Ireland's best hotel from 2013-2017 but fell to second place behind the Killarney Park Hotel last year. It now returns to the top spot for its 30th year in business.

The team took to Facebook to thank "their valued guests" for their continued efforts, "We did it, again!" they wrote.

"We are beyond excited to announce that Harvey’s Point has been awarded the title of Number One Hotel in Ireland in the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Awards 2019! This award means so much to us especially as it was you, our valued guests that voted us as your number one. Thank you to everyone for your continued support from The Gysling Family, Noel and all the Harvey’s Point team."

"Also, a huge congratulations also to the Villa Rose Hotel & Spa & Shandon Hotel who join us in the Top 20 Hotels in Ireland."

The Lough Eske Hotels joins The Merrion, The Marker and Adare Manor in the list, which was "based on feedback from actual guests over the past year," according to a Trip Advisor spokesperson.
