One of Donegal's most iconic hotels has been sold

One of the most iconic hotels in Donegal has been sold. 

It has been announced today that Harvey's Point Hotel has been sold by the leading property company Savills to a presitgious investment fund. 

The news comes 48 hours after the lakeside property celebrated their 30th anniversary. 

The former proprietor, Deirdre McGlone, said: "We have been considering this for some time and after celebrating 30 great years we felt that it was the appropriate time. Having just released our 30th Anniversary book the time has come for someone else to write the next chapter of the Harvey's Point story.

"The Gysling family has brought the business as far as we feel we want to, and the main reason that we are stepping back is so that we can spend more time together as a family. It is simply a ‘life-changing, lifestyle choice’.

“Life is for living. Jody looks forward to enjoying his retirement on his boat and Marc and I are looking forward to special family time together and watching our three beautiful children Carl, James and Christina grow up and find their place in the world.

She added, “Apart from additional investment in the creating luxury spas and additional bedroom Harvey’s will remain as is with all the team have made it what it is.

“To all of us Harvey's is much more than a building, it is a love that has been created and nurtured over the years and one that has played a special part in many lives over the years.”
